What is the Kawasaki engine model number for the side by sides listed below. I had an older Ute with the 401cc Kawasaki FJ 400D, but it had a carburetor, and a flywheel magneto ignition system.
This new 401cc engine with EFI, and electronic ignition looks like a big improvement over the old. But, I can’t find the Kawasaki engine model number?

Some of us have had our Side by Sides for a long time and some of us for only a few years or months.... They say hindsight is 20/20 and in that case if you could go back and purchase a different UTV brand that would be better, would you?
after you've answered, comment below on why you may or may not choose differently

I recently acquired a 2010 Wildefire WF-300 UTV. I'm trying to determine if this is actually a hisun utv or another brand. Has anyone heard of this name or can point me in the right direction?
I bought a Titan Explorer back in 2012 and have had nothing but electrical problems with it ever since. It mostly sits in the garage and I thin I have 160 hours on it since I got it. The place I bought it from is gone and although I suspect it is a Chinese or Japanese I cannot find any service manuals on it.
I'll post up some pics in the general forum in the hopes that someone can point me in the right direction. What I would like to do is to pull ALL of the wiring out and start over with bare bones... nothing but essential operations.
This looks like a good group so hopefully I can help as well as be helped.
