Old Mule

Recommended Posts

Our son used a mule when he worked at the Henderson Bird Viewing Preserve (when he was in high school 10 plus years ago) he really liked it and said it just kept on going and going like the energizer bunny. I'm wondering if the new ones are the same little workhorses?

Wife and I are of senior age, and new to the ATV/UTV sport. We recently bought a new Kawasaki Mule 610, and enjoy riding the dunes and the logging roads in western Oregon.

This week we will venture to Quartzsite Arizona to enjoy a month of warmer weather, and will try some desert riding in our Kawi Mule.

It seems this forum is not overwhelmed w/ Mule riders, but we hope to meet others here that have the same UTV, and enjoying the slower paces of retirement.

Thanks for any replies.

We had a great trip to Quartzsite AZ, weather in the 70s the whole time we were there. The "Big Tent" RV show was good too, even tho the conditions became quite dusty at times, mainly from all the AYVs running around there.

On the way up, we went thru some rainy snowy conditions, and when we got to AZ I had quite a bit of cleanup to do on the Mule before riding it. We put on a total of 14 hrs riding time on the mule, some of which was sneaking around the cops there, as ours was not licensed for the hiways like most all the ATV/RTVs are there. And I was told that AZ doesn't even recognize any other state's off road stickers either. So much for our "united" states.

I am now think of getting either a good cover that will withstand hiway speeds, or an enclosed trailer. Besides the dirty road film conditions, I didn't really like the Mule setting out in the rain for most of the trip back either. We'll see.

I bought a 610 Mule used about a year ago. Wife and I really enjoy it and so do our grandkids. I have a hard time using it seems like someone is always riding it. It has been good so far. I changed the battery, was in need of a battery with more reserve power to operate my winch. I have had a starting problem in the past couple of weeks. Sometimes all it does is click when I turn the key and acts like I have a dead or weak battery. Upon checking the battery it is not the battery. I had been using boaster cables and boasting it off with my truck. The last time it did it I was out and no vechile near. I gave the started a wack with my hammer and it turned over. Once home I took the starter apart and all looked almost like new so I cleaned up everything, connections and lubed the bendix and installed it back again. Working so far but not sure my problem is solved. Usually it happens when I have trailered it and no where near home. Will update on this later.

      Tried to buy a 2020 Kawasaki Mule Pro FXT and was told their was a stop sale on them, but the dealer had no info on what the problem was or how long until a solution is found to whatever the issue is.   Anyone know anything about this?

      Mule Pro MX question:  Is there a trick to removing the center floor panel or "tunnel" other than removing the 8 plastic rivets?  I removed the rivets but the panel won't pop up easily, and I don't want to force it with a crow bar so as not to break some tabs or other hidden parts.  Accessory mount instruction attached.  Thanks for your help.  rider

      Greetings all
       I have a 99 kawasaki mule 550  kaf300c3 That I ordered new valve guides for. Problem is my valves don't fit in new valve guides. Part number is correct. 
       Is it possible that valve guides need to be installed and reamed before the valves will fit into the  guides?   Just seems like an awful lot of material to have to remove by reaming.
      Thanks for any help

      Please help, About to buy a new 2020 mule 700 MX. For driving back to my cottage which is only accessible by a 5 km off-road trail. My parents currently have a 2010 teyrx which does the job for a joke. The trail is fairly smooth -1 big rock Rock section that you have to climb. A big  rtv 1100 Kabota does it no problem as well. 
      I am looking into the mule because of its bench seat. One of my dogs cannot run in front because they’ve had a hip replacement. she also has anxiety and is not fare well on the teyrx. We think mainly because she can’t get comfortable because of the centre consul. We were thinking because of the mules bench seat she would be able to sit comfortably between me and my wife.
      my concern is the mules off-road capability. Do they fare pretty well in the woods/decently smooth ride?
      I also plan to do yardwork and plough my driveway with this mule MX. I love the size of it as well, Because it will be easy to store in my shed plus tow behind in my SUV.
      please let me know what it’s like in the woods/snow (in Nova Scotia we mainly only have 5inchs Of snow fall on the ground at a time)
      please help, me with Determining its off-road capabilities. determining it’s off-road capabilities and keep In mind the trail is in good condition. Also my 700 Yamaha raptor, and 400ex use to do the trail amazing. To give an idea that the trail of pretty good.

      We bought a Hisun 700 UTV, used. It has an issue when you run it in high. It drives but acts like it is shifting when you get around 35mph. Clutch looks good. Read many articles and not sure transmission or something in rear of UTV. Looking for any advice.
