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.

We had a wet Winter here and use this for farm chores.  The alley way has gotten rutted up, and so that has created some bumps and nothing huge.    I will say this, about 3 months ago the passenger side front shock upper bracket weld broke and we had to re-weld that install, so I look at that on the drivers side and its still in good shape.

You'll probably need to get that wheel off the ground. Then try grabbing the tire, and manually moving it through the turn it would make, if you were using the steering wheel. Left/right etc. Then look to see where its broke. It should be quickly obvious when you see something flopping around. If not, then my money is on the inner tie rod. Although it could be the rack. But since its just one side, that inner tie rod seems most likely. You might have to pull that boot to be certain. Since that inner rod is mostly hidden by the boot. Don't damage that boot, and try not to break the tie that's holding it if possible. Since if it's anything like a car, those ties take a special, expensive, never used again tool, to replace them. You'll end up using zip ties on em, or hose clamps. That just isn't the same kind of seal. See if you can gently slide those off. Preserving the boot is really the hardest part of the job. Inner tie rods are definitely a do it yourself job.

      Hello everyone.
      Here I am showing our Green Scout electric all-terrain vehicle.
      All-terrain vehicle 6 wheeled, electric, side-turning. Rides, jumps, dances, swims, but does not fly. The drive is permanent (but you can turn off any wheel arbitrarily through the controller). The power of each wheel is 3 kW at its peak, the total power is 18 kW. Speed up to 60 km / h. Since the all-terrain vehicle is electric, it starts from a place quickly, drives silently (well, of course, the sound from tires and shock absorbers does not disappear).
      The idea of creating such an all-terrain vehicle came after the experience of operating the Argo all-terrain vehicle. The main disadvantages of the wheeled side-turning all-terrain vehicle are low ground clearance, lack of suspension. To get high ground clearance and suspension, there are two outputs on mini all-terrain vehicles - either electric drive or hydraulic. The hydraulics had to be excluded, since at temperatures below -30C it does not work, plus it always flows. As a result, we settled on an electric transmission. Each wheel is a motor-wheel. Naturally, the motor-wheels were being finalized to be able to be installed on an all-terrain vehicle and to be able to swim. The battery is iron-phosphate, all information on the battery, the charge is displayed on the smartphone. Control of the all-terrain vehicle through the on-board computer. Bicycle handlebar controls. Braking either with the sides through a turn of the steering wheel, or with the gas pedal of all wheels at once.

      I put a deposit on a mule sx xc about a month ago. The dealer said Kawasaki told them to tell the customer there would be a 4-12 week waiting period for delivery.  Do any of you have any insight what the actual delivery wait  time may be?  I live in Tennessee.

      I bought an axis 500 brand new, hauled it home and the light indicator for 4 wheel drive is not working.  Is there a something the store didnt tell me, or is it messed up right off the assembly line? Any thoughts or advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

      Can anyone suggest a link to buy a snow blade/plow for a 2021 Mule 4X4 SX XC FI? Cannot find one to fit this year.

      Moving to upstate NY (just south of Albany).
      We will have a 1/4 mile gravel drive.  I have a 1/2 ton truck that I could use but rather not .  Could the Mule SX do this job with the plow accessory?  The dealer is on the fence, as am I.  Is the Mule SX 4x4 got enough power to deal with a 6-8" inch wet snow? 
      Any experience with the SX and plowing snow?

      I have a 2010 Kawasaki mule 600 I've ohmed the wires to the voltage regulator and stator and to the ignition switch all read good. Now when I plug up my voltage regulator it gets extremely hot and so does the wires. I've used my volt meter and checked the plug and I'm getting ac out instead of DC out to the battery. I've got 22 volts ac going to the voltage regulator and it's putting out 3 volts ac instead of DC anyone know why or what I need to check
