The JD doesn't have a speedometer but I think it tops out at around 40, at least it feels like its going really fast. The mule seems to crawl, but it think its the sound of the engine. BUt at 29, you feel like you're going so slow... When I take someone new out I sometimes forget to s---l---o----w down. I'll see them grab the OH SH#! handle, then i'll slow down...


The Kawasaki Mule Pro diesel tops out at 30mph. The JD diesel is 32mph.

The gas Mule Pro does 45mph. The JD does 44mph.

I like my Ranger 900 a lot. But no way it’s stable enough for those speeds. Not with me on it anyway :lol2:

The 4 seat Razor with a turbo can achieve 205 hp and 94 mph, and you have to be nuts to ride in it more than once.

Bet the GW gets the majority of his business off ATV and UTV’s in this county.
If it doesn’t have a slow moving vehicle sign or exceeds 25 mph it’s a target.
Lots of dirt county roads for them to fail the IQ test and pay the stupid tax on. The DUI’s never cease to amaze me.

I drove the Ranger 1000 a month or so ago. Every time I consider one I go and drive ours and pull out the "Ranger" folder. Front CV joints were popping when I was going thru the pasture last week. Back to its home away from home (aka dealer) for repairs. :)

They do need to come out with some more aftermarket accessories for the PRO. Kawasaki has the motors severely de-tuned. I don't need to go 80mph but a little more power when pulling trailer and stuff wouldn't hurt. The clutch kit did help a little bit and kind of made up for the larger tires.

You may have the same problem I have. Have you tried moving the sub throttle actuator by hand?

You might look for an air leak on the intake manifold that is tricking the ECU in believing that there is a problem and you need more fuel. Can you do a smoke test on it the way they do on an automobile. This will show you air leaks in areas that need fixed.

Seems like the problem is a whole lot worse in the summer. Wonder if the air intake temp sensor is inaccurate?

Nothing runs as good in the summer as it does in the winter, heavy, humid air is not condusive to making power.
