Polaris Recalls Some 2020 RANGER XP 1000 and Ranger CREW XP 1000, 2019-2020 PRO XD and 2020 Bobcat Models
Polaris has determined that some 2020 RANGER XP 1000 and RANGER CREW XP 1000, 2019-2020 PRO XD 4000D, 2019 PRO XD 2000D and 2020 Bobcat UV34 and UV34XL vehicles may have been produced with a clutch component that was manufactured incorrectly. An incorrectly manufactured clutch component can cause the engine braking feature to fail, resulting in unexpected vehicle motion, posing a crash hazard.
Number of affected vehicles: approximately 15,000
Number of incidents: Polaris has received 14 reports of unexpected motion or drive clutch locking, including one report of a crash resulting in property damage. No injuries have been reported.
Consumers should immediately stop using the recalled vehicles and call their dealer to schedule an inspection and if needed, a repair.
Polaris is notifying dealers and contacting affected registered owners by mail, and email if available.

My community owns a Mule KAF620 MJF. We also have a North Star trailer mounted power washer. Fully loaded (w/water tank) the entire trailer weighs 3600#. Since the Mule has a rated towing capacity of 1200#, we are afraid to tow the trailer fully loaded. Since this unit has plowing capability, I have some difficulty believing that it would damage the unit by towing the 3600# unit short distances on perfectly flat terrain, mostly concrete or asphalt. Can any experienced Mule operators comment on your towing experiences?
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?
