If you have the Kawasaki Mule with an 800cc gas engine, then even though Kawasaki is a Japanese brand, that engine is a Chery engine from China. Trouble is, most of my parts I have to eventually get from China. Few parts are available in the US. I've found some parts I needed for my ride on Amazon.com.. If you go there, be sure to check the sellers ratings. One seller for Kawasaki parts had a 69% favorable vs 31% unfavorale (I look for 95% or better favorable). You might find the starter you need for about $60.
and people say I'm too hard on Chinese manufacturing? I also suggest you take your original to your local Automotive Electrical repair shop. Let them rebuild THAT one .. My local shop rebuilt a starter for $59 that Ford wanted $425 for new . Its been working for 6 years now
its not just the windshield that vulnerable to windspeed , its also the top if you have one.. It will tear thru the 4 mounting screws and fly off . I built a reinforcement bracket on my MSU500 to support the front edge of the top and to reinforce the center ot the windshild .. I can tow at 75 mph without issue now
In my experience with repairs to my vehicles, dealerships and repair shops charge 2x-3x the retial price for parts that I can buy at NAPA's retail price. My AC compressor $995 from the dealership, $485 fromn NAPA. I don't buy lifetime warranty parts. They are exactly the same as the 90-day warranty parts, just painted a different color. You're paying about 50% higher price that their lifetime part and they're betting you won't need to replace it. I've never would have been able to collect on a warranty replacement on anything I've ever purchased.
