Be sure to replace

  1. Vavle seals
  2. piston rings
  3. crank bearings
  4. bearing in the cover case
  5. check the cylinder head for cracks

One thing, the score marks on the piston (S) IF YOU CAN HANG A FINGER NAIL, YOU NEED A NEW PISTON

      Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by  Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
      Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and  I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!
