Mule 550 2004 won't pull when hot

Recommended Posts

I have a mule 550 and when it gets hot it will not pull a hill. I have rebuilt the driven clutch ( new clutch spring, new pads, new ramp), new drive belt and nothing has helped. It will drive great and pull Hills fine until the mule gets hot, then it just slips and won't go. I rebuilt the driven clutch based on what a kawasaki tech told me when I described symptoms. Any ideas? Is it the front clutch?

      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.

      Need a new primary clutch.  Center shaft is scored so not really repairable (although I am going to see if my tool and die maker brother can make a replacement part but that'll take too long to be a replacement option.)
      Dealer price for replacement is over $750!  seems VERY high relative to clutch prices for other UTV's (more than double).
      is there a more reasonable alternate?
       
      thx

      I have a Bad Boy Stampede 900 and would like to know if anyone sells a seatbelt by-pass for the accelerator.

      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?
