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.

      We have a new Mule Pro FX LE EPS.  It has the manual dump bed and looking to add some type of electric lift to it.  Even with a small load, two people can't dump it by hand.  Seems kind of a bad design, hinge point and the hydraulic strut assist is too far towards the back.  Been looking at electric actuators on ebay.  For those that have done this, do you put the actuator in place of the strut?  How does it work?  To me, I would think even with a 400lb actuator, it might struggle since it would be so far back.  Thinking of putting it towards the front more.  But not sure of the best place to mount it.  And would I need a super long stroke to get it to raise the bed all the way?

      2007 Mule 610,  owned for 8 yrs and valves were ticking when I got it and had them adjusted twice and this is when plugs began to foul.  I replaced battery (used battery I had on hand) a yr ago and didn't foul a plug for some time and replaced batter (new) with a bigger lawn mower type battery again a month ago and have fouled two plug since.  Had carb cleaned and valves adjusted and still fouls plugs way to often.  Friend has a mule just like mine and his does same thing. Have read this is a common problem with 610 mule.  Any help or suggestions would be welcomed.  Thanks and stay healthy.

      Hi, all, I am here to say i have found an excellent source for kawasaki parts, It's run by  Eddie Babbit. It is called Kawasaki Partshouse. run by Babbits online, Muskegon Michigan. http://www.kawasakipartshouse.com/oemparts
      Just the other day i ordered piston rings, for my Mule 550, They got here and a Oil ring, and smaller ring were missing from the box, Kawasaki took responsibility for the "Accident" and  I had also contacted babbits, and they replied and they said" keep the old rings, order a new set and you just pay shipping" so i got $30 piston rings for 8.95!!!? Free shipping on orders over $50!!!
