The gauges on the Troopers aren't the greatest. If you search through the forum there have been a few people who've replaced the gauges with some marine grade ones .. exact fit for the holes in the dash. My T2 used to over heat all the time, so I moved the rad up on top of the rear deck and haven't had a problem since. There's photos in the gallery.

The oil pressure on the Trooper isn't the best. Seems that when it gets hot, pressure goes way down. A lot of us have had the same problem. The oil just gets too hot. You might add an oil cooler. Get a filter adapter and an oil cooler and plumb them in. Ask your auto parts store. On mine I made an aluminum oil pan that holds 9 quarts. Being aluminum with much more surface area to cool the oil and having the extra volumn has made a big differance. Oil pressure holds much better. Get more air into the engine space to help keep things cooler. I cut the fronts out of the little triangle body pieces just ahead and above the rear fenders to make them act like air scoops. Going to make them much bigger when I get a chance. Every bit helps. You could also replace the radiator fan with a high volumn fan.

I've been running 10-30 oil in mine, has anyone tried using 10-40 or some other heavier oil, I use to run 20-50 in my 100 hp Rotax 4 cylinder horizontally opposed air cooled air plane motor. Any advice for shop owners?

Thanks

I normally run 10-40 or 20-40 in everything. I run 20-50 in my race car. I will try to find the Mobil 1 bottle in a little bit and tell you for sure what is in my Trooper.

      Please help, About to buy a new 2020 mule 700 MX. For driving back to my cottage which is only accessible by a 5 km off-road trail. My parents currently have a 2010 teyrx which does the job for a joke. The trail is fairly smooth -1 big rock Rock section that you have to climb. A big  rtv 1100 Kabota does it no problem as well. 
      I am looking into the mule because of its bench seat. One of my dogs cannot run in front because they’ve had a hip replacement. she also has anxiety and is not fare well on the teyrx. We think mainly because she can’t get comfortable because of the centre consul. We were thinking because of the mules bench seat she would be able to sit comfortably between me and my wife.
      my concern is the mules off-road capability. Do they fare pretty well in the woods/decently smooth ride?
      I also plan to do yardwork and plough my driveway with this mule MX. I love the size of it as well, Because it will be easy to store in my shed plus tow behind in my SUV.
      please let me know what it’s like in the woods/snow (in Nova Scotia we mainly only have 5inchs Of snow fall on the ground at a time)
      please help, me with Determining its off-road capabilities. determining it’s off-road capabilities and keep In mind the trail is in good condition. Also my 700 Yamaha raptor, and 400ex use to do the trail amazing. To give an idea that the trail of pretty good.

      I bought a new oil pressure sending unit for my 2008 Trooper T2 (see first picture attached). When I went to install it I found out the sensor on my machine looks like the sensor for a Renegade (see second picture attached). Has anyone ever seen this? I know this is not a retro fit since because the threaded tube that connects it to the engine is a much smaller diameter than the stock part.
      What is the proper part number for the unit so I can get a replacement?
