Ignition coil

Recommended Posts

HI, I have a old 1991 kawasaki mule 540-c , 2010, and I need a ignition coil for it . the part number is 21121-1187. Unfortunitly Kawasaki discontinued the part. I have been searching for weeks to try and find the part but I have had no luck. I have seen posts that John Deere used this motor in their gator or mower ? But have not been able to cross reference the part # and I am not sure if that is even true. Does anyone know where I can get a new or used coil or have this one rebuilt or the john deere part or engine #. Thanks for the help

There are a number of on-the-car, shadetree tests for your ignition coil, but to definitively determine whether your coil is on the way out, the only proper coil test is with a multimeter. Why? Here's the rundown:

Inside an ignition coil are two coils of wire on top of each other. These coils are called windings. One winding is called the primary winding, the other is the secondary. The primary winding gets the juice together to make a spark and the secondary sends it out the door to the distributor. Either one of these windings can go bad and cause your ignition coil to fail.

Sometimes an ignition coil is bad, clearly bad, as in it makes no spark at all. But if a coil is on the way out, but not dead yet, it can make a weak spark that can cause the car to run rough or wrong. By testing an ignition coil with a multimeter while it's disconnected, you'll be using data and numbers to determine the health of the coil rather than your eyeballs and dead reckoning.

We'll show you how to test both the primary and secondary ignition coil windings using a multimeter.

      Hello.  I have 2006 kawasaki mule 3010 trans 4x4 that has the drivers side wheel turning inwards while the passenger side is straight.  What would cause this to happen and what would you suggest to repair.  Thanks.  Adjusted the tie rods, but wont fix this.

      It's been leaking VERY slowly over the past couple years, just  had to add a minute amount of brake fluid every few months. Now i have to i add about 3/4 of a cup every 5 days.
      i took the rear tire off, where it is leaking from, cleaned up the outside of the drum and it looks like the fluid is leaking from where the   "outer" drum meats the inner drum, #41038. guessing its the brake cylinder inside..... any other thoughts. I made sure the brake line is tight too.

      We unearthed some drawings from an approved patent application for a Kawasaki Sport UTV, which lends some credibility to the long-rumored vehicle. Check out the patent here.
      While this doesn’t mean a Kawasaki Sport UTV is guaranteed to be coming to a dealer near you, it is certainly a big step in the right direction for Team Green loyalists who’ve been waiting for Kawasaki to challenge the likes of the Polaris RZR and Can-Am Maverick.

      Dipstick shows pale color, dont think its water, smells like fuel, oil changed one week ago, level is very high.
      First I thought it was water condensed into the oil...but someone pointed out the smell, and it doesn't look white-milky. And a half qt or so in one week?
      So is it possible to get fuel leaking into the oil?
