Just picked up a 1990 mule 2010 KAF540C1 hoping you guys might be able to help with rebuild questions , About parts etc...  already found out Im having a hard time finding 89mm bore STD rings for it everywhere says discontinued  , it has 95psi compression not sure if thats enuff to let it run it wants to run , someone had been in the carb and mess it up by striping the jets , so i ordered a cheap china carb to see if it will start atleast , i pulled the head lapped the vavles already and want to check the cyl, for any rust or damage it looked great along with the head so thinking a ring job so far ,

95 psi sounds good enough since this engine has an automatic compression relief. Be sure to purchase a cylinder hone so you can crosshatch the cylinder.

They show the rings in stock for 44$, i've ordered other Cub Cadet and Kohler parts from these folks before.

      Mule Pro MX question:  Is there a trick to removing the center floor panel or "tunnel" other than removing the 8 plastic rivets?  I removed the rivets but the panel won't pop up easily, and I don't want to force it with a crow bar so as not to break some tabs or other hidden parts.  Accessory mount instruction attached.  Thanks for your help.  rider

      Greetings all
       I have a 99 kawasaki mule 550  kaf300c3 That I ordered new valve guides for. Problem is my valves don't fit in new valve guides. Part number is correct. 
       Is it possible that valve guides need to be installed and reamed before the valves will fit into the  guides?   Just seems like an awful lot of material to have to remove by reaming.
      Thanks for any help

      Please help, About to buy a new 2020 mule 700 MX. For driving back to my cottage which is only accessible by a 5 km off-road trail. My parents currently have a 2010 teyrx which does the job for a joke. The trail is fairly smooth -1 big rock Rock section that you have to climb. A big  rtv 1100 Kabota does it no problem as well. 
      I am looking into the mule because of its bench seat. One of my dogs cannot run in front because they’ve had a hip replacement. she also has anxiety and is not fare well on the teyrx. We think mainly because she can’t get comfortable because of the centre consul. We were thinking because of the mules bench seat she would be able to sit comfortably between me and my wife.
      my concern is the mules off-road capability. Do they fare pretty well in the woods/decently smooth ride?
      I also plan to do yardwork and plough my driveway with this mule MX. I love the size of it as well, Because it will be easy to store in my shed plus tow behind in my SUV.
      please let me know what it’s like in the woods/snow (in Nova Scotia we mainly only have 5inchs Of snow fall on the ground at a time)
      please help, me with Determining its off-road capabilities. determining it’s off-road capabilities and keep In mind the trail is in good condition. Also my 700 Yamaha raptor, and 400ex use to do the trail amazing. To give an idea that the trail of pretty good.

      I have a brand new Kawasaki Mule 4010 4x4 trans.  While driving it has a vibration/rattle coming from the box area that I can't seem to locate.  I've gone over the vehicle and all the connections associated with converting the vehicle from single to two bench are securely latched.  The tail gate is firmly latched and I don't notice any lose bolts.  Looking for clues to what is vibrating causing the rattle and how to correct.
