I'm working on a 2005 Cub Cadet side by side and I'm trying to remove the front two axles. I have a slide hammer puller on the inner joint and with all my strength they will not budge. Anyone have the same issues and is there something I'm missing or a trick of some sort to pull these out? Any suggestions please and thank you.
While installing the High lifter lift kit in my 2015 Mule 4010 I nicked the piston, strut rod, the shiney rod in the middle that I cant remember the name (no coffee yet this morning). I knew the nick was deep enough to eventually tear up the seal and she'd let loose. Well 3 months or so down the road here we are, its blown out.
My question is how do I know which strut I have? I see 2 listed in the exploded 45023-1006 and the 45023-7503. The difference is the spring rate or K value. Seeing as I have high lifter springs does it matter the K value? And if that's the case can I use any of the 45023 prefix struts from various other models?
Have a stock 2017 Stampede 4 door XTR. Looking for a spare tire, such as a front stock setup. Quoted from the dealer at $366.00. For a thousand bucks I can get a whole after market setup of 4 and use my original front for a spare. My stockies are 27x9r14 and 27x11r14's. I was thinking of going to 29's. Does anyone know if they will fit with no rub? All the dealers don't know. If anyone has an extra front wheel/tire they want to get rid of ?
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?
