My dealer just got parts this morning (purchased on Jan. 20th) - I should have it by the weekend!

Got it home!  

They got ours delivered today (instead of tomorrow).

I'm also trying to find any info on the latest recall. Its not listed on the Kawasaki site. My parents purchased a 2019 Pro-FXT EPS on Dec 20, but it cannot be provided to them until the recall is complete. Kawasaki has not provided the fix details to the dealer yet.

Might read this to see if this affects any of yours

 

Fuel Leaks May Create Fire Hazard

In the recalled vehicles, two possible problems may exist:

  1. The engine oil cooler hoses can separate from the clamp joints due to insufficient clamp strength resulting in an oil leak.
  2. The fuel tank cap gasket can become pinched and torn when the cap is installed on the filler neck. This can result in a fuel and fuel vapor leak, creating a fire hazard.

The company has received seven reports so far of vehicles catching on fire or being damaged. Fortunately, no injuries have been reported.

The vehicles were sold from August 2018 through February 2019 for about $12,000 and were manufactured in Taiwan and imported by Kawasaki Motors Corporation.

The recall affects 2019 Mule Pro MX utility vehicles, models 700 EPS, 700 EPS LE, and 700 Camo EPS.

These are all four-wheel off-highway utility vehicles with side-by-side seating for two people and automotive-style controls. They came in camo, green, red, and white. Customers may see the “Mule Pro MX” logo printed on the right side and left front fender of the affected vehicles, and “Kawasaki” printed on the cargo box. The VIN should be located on the steel frame between the right, front lower A-arm mounts.

Kawasaki invites consumers to call toll-free at 866-802-9381 from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday for more information. They can also visit the company’s website.

Kawasaki Recalls 1,000 Mule Pros Over Rollover Risk

Other recalls have affected the Kawasaki Mule Pro. The most recent recall prior to the one detailed above involved about 1,000 vehicles. For this recall, there was a possibility that an incorrect grade of material — which did not meet the intended tensile strength—was used to manufacture the ROPS cross member of the rollover protective structure.

The recall involved 2018 model year Mule Pro DXT, DX and 2019 model year Mule Pro FXT, FX, and FXR utility vehicles. These were sold at Kawasaki dealers from August 31, 2018, to September 22, 2018, for between $13,100 and $17,000.

Consumers were advised to stop using the products immediately, and contact their dealerships to schedule a free repair, which would involve replacing the ROPS cross member.

I called Kawasaki customer service on Friday after posting above. The new recall (not posted on the Kawasaki site yet and not the ones listed above by Travis). CS stated that they are waiting on the Feds to approve their recall and then they will get it posted and rolled out. With Christmas and New Years, the feds have been slow to respond. It involves the breather tube and accumulation of dirt, debris, and water on the skid plate. They say they have the fix ready to roll out as soon as approved by the feds.

I found this,

 My understanding is that it has to do with moisture in the crankcase breather freezing in cold climates. When the freezing occurs it stops the crankcase depressurizing to atmosphere and it will cause the engine to belch oil out near the valve cover. Among other things, this is a fire hazard. Mine did this once on a frigid day here in missouri in January.
Supposedly affects 2015 - 2020 fxt pro models

The Kawasaki sales rep still states that Kawasaki is just waiting on the Feds to approve their recall, but the one we purchased in December is still sitting at the dealership unable to be released. Supposedly Kawasaki is going to provide a cash rebate to the customer for ones that were purchased but unable to be delivered to the customer. That does nothing for the warranty months expiring since purchased though without possession, or interest or payments made for them sitting at the dealership.

I was told by dealer the stop sale is still in place.  Bought my 2020  Mule Pro FXT-EPS in early January.   called CS at kawasaki yesterday and they now have a $500 accessory credit available for this mule model until it's released...Think I'll buy a roof for mine and get that credit.  Also thought it would be mid March when it would be released...

Our dealer said they were unable to sell.  Warranty can not start while sale hold is active. They said.  We gave 500 to hold that particular one.

Last week I took advantage of the $500 accessories rebate that Kawasaki is offering those of us that have a Mule Pro reserved in limbo. I had the dealer install the second set of LED headlights that does not come standard on my Mule Pro FXT EPS. I would advise anyone that is in the same situation to pick something out and take advantage of this offer since your Mule Pro is just sitting at the dealership.  After all, you get to spend their money! Lol!

Is this $500 accessory credit in addition to the $500 rebate that was offered?  Or are you referring to the same offer?

Someone on another forum has stated there is now a second stop sale on the Mule Pro FXT concerning a steering issue. If true, that's news to me.  Has anyone here heard of this?

      I bought a used Ruesch UTV side-by-side last winter.   Never really used it until this spring.  I'm struggling to find a resource for parts as I noticed that three out of the four motor mountskills are broken.  I have some other issues. Does anyone know where to find parts for this?

      Can’t seem to figure out my Coleman 550 outfitter no start issues. Machine turns over and starts for a brief second and shuts right off. Had error code for fuel injector and has since “been changed. Next code it’s throwing is E 118, coolant/oil temperature sensor circuit high voltage or open”. I believe I’ve located the sensor right near the head of the motor. All wires seem to be clean and tight on the plug end. Any suggestions or has anyone ran into a similar problem. Thanks everyone

      With the engine idling, the gears grind when I try to shift into any gear. 
      What is causing this and how do I fix it?
