2000 Kawasaki Mule 2510 4X4 Diesel Question

Recommended Posts

Recently bought this machine. My brother has had the same exact one for about 5 years now and i loved it so i got my own. I got a good deal on it. took it to the lease this past weekend after replacing the cvt belt, cvt filter, air filter and fuel filter. just to start fresh. Well now when i am going in high i can not get above 13 miles an hour or so and it sounds like it is bogging down. When i am floored it i can hear an occasional almost like backfire inside the muffler but it is not very load just short bursts. I have a service manual on order but i am hoping someone here may have encountered this issue before and knew the remedy. Also i can not be certain but i am pretty sure that i am using much more diesel to get around the lease than i did in my brothers for driving the same distance around. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

      I have been going through the troubleshooting in the manual (pages 17-38 and 17-39), but I can't find anything that looks like the picture in the manual. If I run power directly to the pump, it will start and run but otherwise won't start.
      Any help to this old nubie will be greatly appreciated. My background is electronics, not vehicles.

      This is a carb model not EFI it was in pieces when I got it. I got it running by replacing the fuel pump had to bypass this little reservoir thing I can’t find how it goes back in please help. Machine runs good but I have fuel coming out of the drain on the carb. This is a pic of the reservoir thing thanks

      Don't know much about anything utv but I figured out my fuel pump wiring harness needed to be replaced. Installation looks pretty straightforward, plug into fuel pump and plug in the two pigtails. Question is: one of the Pigtails on the old harness I am replacing had a splice in the black wire and attached to a bolt on the engine. Is this necessary?  Is the black wire, I'm assuming it's the ground, grounded at the other end of the pigtail?
