2022 mule sx xc delivery wait


Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

I spoke with the dealer yesterday and he didn’t tell me anything very encouraging. He said the next mule sx xc model that arrives would be mine, but could not even give me an estimate as to when it would be. He said Kawasaki is one of the worst at communicating with the dealership, the only one worse is Honda. So no good news there. I guess the wait continues.

I haven’t been able to find out much about the Kawasaki mule delivery delays specifically, but I have read some forums and comments about Polaris utvs. Some customers have been waiting for 8 months and are still waiting for their machine. While others are getting them in 6-8 weeks. Seems to be no rhyme or reason. I’m sure Kawasaki is having the same issues. I’ve been waiting 8 weeks and still haven’t heard anything.

I went by the dealer today.  She said the manufacturer has mule SX’s but are waiting on odometer or some other electrical component before they can complete them.  Still doesn’t know when  delivery will be.  Sounds like we’re being held up due to the chip shortages.  It’s now been a month I’ve been waiting.

If you do a search by your zip code on Kawaski’s website you can see which local dealers have any mule stock.  Last week there was hardly any. This week more seem to be showing up in my area.  Most mule models Except SX’s.  Maybe because they’re the lowest cost, the manufacturer is focusing on revenue instead of when the unit was ordered.  Although I have read where manufacturers are building anything they have enough parts to finish.

Got my mule today. Not the one I ordered though. I ordered an XS XC. The dealer called me and said he just got a Pro MX in and would I be interested. Costed $1800 more than the XS but I’m tired of waiting and it is a nicer unit. Finally the wait is over. Should be delivered to me next weekend after fully assembled and accessories are installed.

Hi folks I'm glad one of your mules came in, from what I have seen a basic mule is pretty hard to get! I watched several dealer websites daily over a 150 mile radius for many weeks just waiting for one of them to get in a green or camo Pro MX EPS.  Finally one showed up at a dealer around 90 miles away and I snagged it, Picked it up Oct 15 and we couldn't be happier with it. My 2022 KLR 650 was a long wait too but I got the one I wanted in late september.

If you want one expand your search and be ready to be on the phone with your CC to hold it. Good luck, and if they are hard to find this year just wait until next year.

Prices will be through the roof and inventory will be even lower,

      Many people have issues with the kawasaki FJ400 engine  fouling out spark plugs, after  working on a  few FJ engines and 600 series Mule's with this issue,  i can say the fix for this issue is using a slightly hotter spark plug... the factory recommends a BPR6ES NGK plug.... the Number in NGK plugs represents its heat range and somewhat odd, the lower the number the hotter the plug, at least as far as NGK is concerned. If you have  a Mule fouling spark plugs try installing a NGK BPR4ES spark plug.
      FROM NGK
      A hotter heat range spark plug has an insulator design with a longer heat flow path to the metal shell of the plug. As a result, more heat stays in the ceramic firing end and less is dissipated to the engine. A colder heat range spark plug has an insulator design with a shorter heat flow path to the metal shell of the plug. As a result, less heat stays in the ceramic firing end and more is dissipated to the engine. For a spark plug to function properly, it must have a tip temperature high enough to burn off carbon deposits (self-cleaning) and avoid fouling, while remaining low enough to avoid overheating the ceramic firing end and pre-ignition.

      Hello, All!  I've decided to replace the traction batteries in my 2018 Sector E1 with a 48V Lithium set. They may be expensive, but I figure the Discovery Dry Cell are, too. I am not looking for the max driving range, as I have never received near the brochured range to begin with, but a good mix of charge/ get work done/ charge is what I am expecting.
      I have settled on the 48V EAGL kit from bigbattery dot com. Each battery pack provides 30Ah. The kit ships with a charger, as well. The packs would be physically connected in parallel (using a busbar) to one another, maintaining the 48V voltage, but together would be able to provide the amp draw the buggy pulls when going up hill or towing a rake (rated 320 max continuous Amps). This is in comparison to the serial connection the eight 6V lead batteries. Each of the EAGL batteries looks to have its own BMS; am I correct in thinking I will have to use their included charger rather than (simply) changing the onboard charger to lithium mode? The chemistry of the pack is LiFe PO4, for what it's worth.  I haven't torn anything apart yet (to diagram), so  I am not sure how the dash will interpret the AMP draw, but the kit I am looking at includes a dash mounted charge indicator.
      If anyone has completed a similar conversion, do you have any tips? Specifically, how did you remove the original batteries, and how did you secure the new ones? I am guessing that almost any change from the stock batteries would involve at least some modifications. Any tips would be appreciated, especially things I may have failed to consider. Thanks!

      MY 400 is gutless. I would like to know if I can upgrade to a larger engine ?

      Spent today at a Honda dealership looking at their 520 side by side, then on the way home past our Lowes noticed they had several new UTVs on site, so we U-turned and ducked in there. We were impressed that all that came for $9,999 metal whole length skid plate, nice sized bed, roof, windshield, side mirrors, winch, upgrade looking tires… all of which would have added thousands of dollars to an already expensive Honda 520. Now Honda does have a great reputation from my trusted UTV experienced buddy, so it has that going for it.

      I would really like to know what you guys think about this. I'll try not to ramble and make it as clear as I can.
       
      I took this new job with companyX as a fiber splicer a year ago. I have a 45' bucket truck and 10or12 x 8 ft enclosed splice trailer I have to take home. Within the last 6 months all the management in the splice dept left. Now the power/construction management and higher ups are filling in. Just recently we were told travel to our 1st job is not payable even though we are in a company vehicle. 
      We are union so I asked the union business manager about this. His reply was be grateful you were paid travel as long as you were and that you don't have to drive your POV to the job.
       
      Last week I had 50hr total. The job area is 4-4.5 hrs away. My time was reduced to 44.5 hrs since we were told this travel thing on Tuesday of that week. I wasn't hired for this area. I was hired for area a lot closer to home. 
       
      Pay is good. Work is not hard. Insurance is through the union and so far pretty good.
      But I hate the thought of having to work extra just to make a 40hr paycheck. Anyone who has to drive as part of their job knows windshield time is not easy.
       
      Anyway what do you guys think. Should I look for a different job or just suck it up because of the decent pay and health insurance.
