Oil Fill/Check on early 90's Mule 1000

Recommended Posts

I can't seem to locate the oil level add/check/fill on our old KAF450, Mule 1000. I see the oil filter on the drivers' side, but no fill tube/cap. Perhaps I need to pull some other covers off first, but if you know where it is please point me in the right direction.

I have ordered a shop manual, but hoping someone can help with this a bit quicker!


**btw, how do I determine the year of this vehicle? Don't see a tag/plate mounted anywhere obvious.

While we have had our Mule 20 years, it only has 900 miles on it, and has been used pretty lightly. Other than having one of the intake boots work loose, it has always worked well (other than replacing the battery every few years).

I just brought it out of storage to enjoy with my 6 & 7-year old kids, so we have been cleaning it up and restoring it a bit. I have a vinyl cutter, so I've been making fresh Kawasaki and Mule logos. Enjoying it once again!

      My 2018 Hisun sector crew engine cut off after about 15 minutes run. There is no indicator of what is wrong, no error code just die and won't restart until it cool down. I notice that the fan is not running but the temp indicator is on low temp, no overheat indicator. I checked the radiator fluid, it is cool to touch.
      Cooling fans are working, I can hear it running once awhile if I can get the engine warm up enough.  Thank you for all the help.

      I've installed the Kemimoto side by side mirrors in my UTV to replace one that would not stay in place.This one give great views and tightens down nicely, but you have to take them down evenly or it gets bound up. Just an all around great mirror.

      Purchased a 2011 bighorn banchee. Needs motor work. Not sure what. Husband is mechanic but not computer savvy. So, is there a manual that will tell him how to tear this down?  We have down loaded a service manual, but he says it doesn't tell him what he is looking for.

      Hey all!
      I'm on a mission to buy my first UTV soundbar as a gift for my dad. I'm aiming for something that offers great sound quality without breaking the bank – my budget is around $250. Right now, I'm considering options like ecoxgear, kemimoto, and boss.
      Does anyone have experience with these brands or specific models that you'd recommend? Any advice or suggestions would be super appreciated!
      Thanks in advance for your help!
