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?

I'm not trying to trample flatbeds post about the front ball joints being able to pull out. I just couldn't find his post to reply there. Sorry flatbed. Flatbed found that the bolts holding the ball joints in place weren't close enough to the ball joint stem to fit into it's groove, thus the ball joint could work it's way out. This happened to flatbed and Kinarfi. It could be very dangerous if this happened at the wrong time. I finally got around to checking mine today. The top of the ball joint on the front left had already pulled out 1/8". The bottom one was still ok. I did as flatbed sujested and drilled them out and refitted them with new bolts. Both joints on the right side did not need any work as they were secured ok by the original bolts. To reiterate what flatbed said, be sure to address this potential failure. Just redo them and don't wait for signs of them pulling out.
New to the Joyner community. Bought a used 2016 1100 sand viper in descent shape. Only 155 miles. Runs great. It just rattles quite a bit in the front when riding on rough gravel / hard-packed dirt roads outside St Johns. Removed front wheels and seems to be coming from both upper and lower suspension arm bushings/radial bearings (see pic); both left and right. Seems like some play inside the eyelets - as I shake the arms a bit. I assume it's not supposed be loose in there like that and the bushing/bearings are worn. Anyone have had this issue and how did you go about changing them?
