I have a 2015 Kymco 450 UXV with a moose plow on it. My problem is that the plow frame at the push plate drags on the ground. I have already moved all 4 shocks to the lower holes on the frame. But it still drags. I’d like another 2-3 inches. I cannot find an aftermarket lift kit. Any suggestions?
thanks for any help.

My dominator will not start. I have checked and charged the battery. It runs all the lights at full brightness and all other electrical systems perfectly well (e.g. winch). When I attempted to start the UTV, I hear a clicking noise underneath the battery but no other sound.
My guess is that either the break or gear "start" solenoid is stuck. I noticed that the UTV will only start when the break is pressed and it is in park. If the solenoid that triggers either of these is stuck, that would explain no starting. Or, the starter is dead?
Amateur here.......in process of finalizing a purchase of a 2021 Kawasaki Mule PRO-FXT Ranch Edition. We have 60 acres of well suited land for riding and are finally pulling the trigger on a side by side. After some research and test driving we settled on the Mule PRO-FXT. We plan to make the purchase now and then likely add a snow plow next fall (though we're not certain of this). Due to the color (that my wife wants) and the features, it makes more sense for us to get the Ranch version than the LE. That said, the winch that comes with the Ranch edition apparently doesn't accommodate a synthetic cable which is what they recommend for use with a snow plow. So......I would have to buy a 2nd winch kit to replace the existing.
I'm disappointed they can't work something out with me to swap them out rather than me buying another one but that is where I find myself. I need to buy it from this dealer (long story that is not interesting.....but this is the only option I have). The quote for the new winch kit is $710 + $147 for labor.
In any event, I'm looking for any thoughts more experienced people might have. My tentative plan is just to leave the original winch on until next fall, then swap them out when I confirm I want to add a snow plow. Or should I consider removing the original winch while it is brand new and try to sell it on the secondary market? Would it be difficult to sell?
I would also appreciate any recommendations on the plow itself. Does it make sense getting it through the dealer or are there other types/brands you would recommend? One thing I found slightly confusing is that the dealer said the Ranch winch doesn't come with a remote switch.....you have to use the switch on the dash. But maybe that is only with the original winch. I would think having a remote hand held switch would be advantageous when moving snow.
Hope these aren't silly questions. I really appreciate any insights you can provide.

Hey guys pulling the tranny right now to fix a bent shift fork and leaking seals. Noticed my driver side rear axle pulling apart when I removed it. CV joint is busted, I have not opened the boot to see whats happened yet but wanted to know if anyone knows if a domestic axle that will work or can we rebuild those CVs?

Mule Pro FX manual specifies 87 octane gas for the MulePro FX. In the non-mountain states that is "regular" gas. However, in mountain states "regular" gas is 85 octane. Was this an oversight in the manual, or is 87 actually the minimum octane required (this would require "midgrade" gas in mountain states. My Ford 350 V10 vortex requires 87 octane so it is strange that a utv would require the same.
I am still in the "shopping mode" for a utv so the answer to this question will help me decide on brand. Thanks.
