Summer just closed!

AND it was the SECOND HOTTEST summer on record for Arizona. AZ has 150+ years of weather records. This is the first summer that we can't wait for it to cool. Never in 10 years have we ever wanted to see summer end but we do this year. It has been so hot and humid (at times), we have not had the Trooper out since the Jamboree. If it keeps this up we will have to move to a cooler location like UT or ID. On the bright side we got a tandem Kayak for this winter's trip around the Gulf of Mexico & Florida. If you have noticed we are not been adding /Mexico to our signature any longer. Just too unsafe currently to go to Mexico so have to go somewhere else in the winter. We have been using our/MY Senior Pass for the National Park Campgrounds, what a savings! There are a few good things about getting older, not many, LOL ! Who knows Senior Pass may go away with the upcoming budget cuts, so using it a much as we can now. Just babbling to generate active on the board. Are you all still ALIVE !

      We would like to ride our sxs from Wisconsin to South Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and back to Wi.
       
      Anyone ever take a 2000 mile journey on a sxs?   Where do I track down routes?   What should I pack?  Thoughts?

      Hopefully someone out there is a T-Boss 410 electrics expert or a Massimo mechanic is viewing this. I parked my 410 and it was working great. I came back a week later and attempted to crank it and nothing. Turned the key and no power. Figured it was a bad/low battery so I charged it. Still nothing. Attempted to jump start it and still nothing. Usually when I put the key in and turn it to the first position, the display comes on and I hear the ECU and other items boot. Now it is doing nothing. 
      I slowly went through the electrical system and found the main fuse attached to the starter relay, part 71602 (pic 1) blown. I figured replacing this fuse would fix my problem. It didn't. I then ordered a new starter relay thinking maybe that part had gone bad and caused the fuse to blow, but a new relay did not fix the problem. 
      I have found a work around for starting the machine. If I take one of the purple/black leads (pic 2) and insert one of them in the bottom right of the starter relay (pic 1 and 3) then the machine will get power even with the key in the off position.  I'm bypassing something but don't know what. I can use my right hand to hold the wire against the lower right of the starter relay, reach over and hold the brake with my foot, then take my left hand and turn the key and it will crank. As soon as I remove the wire from the relay the machine shuts down. I have even removed the power distributor box and it will still get power when I touch the wire to the relay. Of course this is not the way it should work but if I can't solve this problem somehow I may just have to rig a connector to the relay and bypass whatever is causing the electrical issue. Massimo has told me the purple/black wires on my model are not used.
      Any help in figuring what my problem may be or other items I can try?

      Just got quoted $770 for my Mule's first 50 hour service. Is it just me, or does this seem insanely excessive? I was expecting something in the $350 to $500 range and thinking that even $500 would be a little high. Is dealer service really necessary at 50 hours? At this price I think I'd like to shop around for a mechanic that could do it for half the price. I don't really have the option of shoping around for a cheaper Kawasaki dealer, as there is just this one dealer a reasonable distance away (30 min). The next closest olne is 3 hours away.

      Hey guys,

      While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out. 
       
      My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models? 

      Thanks all,

      Hello!  I have a Coleman 550x that has about 4.5 hours on it.  It's had an easy life waiting on the engine to break in.  I purchased it in June and now with cooler weather coming in, it seems to be not wanting to start.  If the temp outside is 70 degrees or less, it won't catch.  The lights all work, no error code.  I can turn over the engine and the battery is strong.  If I give it the slightest amount of gas, it will start.  However, if the RPM drop near 1500, it quits.  I've tried running it for 6-7 mins (with the accelerator slightly depressed) to see if when warmed it up it works, but still no go.  Perhaps the engine didn't actually warm up at that low of RPM and around 65 degrees outside.  If the temperature is warmer, starts right up and runs no big deal as if nothing is wrong.  I called coleman and they want me to take it to a repair shop and they didn't even try to troubleshoot.  Any ideas?
