We had a gaited mule. His name was bill. God we hated that mule. He ruined every gate in the pasture he was in. We sold him when Craigslist started up to a fella who lived in ft worth. Did a little dance as we watched him leave. I thought at the time, With Craigslist we can sell anything now. Lol

There is good ones and bad ones., like any thing, right now a good mule is worth a lot of money. They seem to be a going thing right now and some people are breeding some good mares and making mules that are a lot different than they were even ten years ago. Seen one sell last Sat. night for 10300.00 and you are seeing some sell for way more than that, and not only at the Jake Clark Mule Sale, but other places as well.

There is also a vent for the belt housing. It has a screen that can get clogged. I check when I check the air filter. That belt housing should be blown out every so often also.

My mule wouldn't breed, that is why I got a Polaris Ranger!

Clogged up filter isn't the problem..dirt getting around the filter is.. My grasshoppers filter gets so clogged and sometimes I forget until I hear the engine gulping for air. I'll open it, its just one filter, and its full of grass, dust and crud. I take that filter off and its pristine clean on the other side of it. That's how a filter works. If you take that filter off and its dirty on the other side, well, that engine isn't going to last very long.

But you see, this is the same response we get from the kawasucky people. Same stupid one. Dirt getting past the filter......Oh you have to clean the filter... Basically, you cant find anyone who knows anything anymore.
This brings me back to anyone who is looking to buy a used or new kawasucky mule. CHECK the filter, check it good. Take it out and look behind it.. See if someone has cleaned the air intake behind the filter where the air is suppose to be filtered. I say that anyone selling a newer used Mule knows the engine's life is going to be shorter because of the faulty filter system..

I actually don't think it was because your filter was too dirty. Either you have some defective parts or some thing was not put together correctly.

Most dealers are a PIA... not just Kawasaki dealers.. Ford, Chevy, Honda, etc. "They" in general do not have very good mechanics and will weisel out of some thing if they can. We all attempted to help you with that battle also but you refused. The oil on the filter was a bs excuse.

But... if you are as uncooperative with the dealer as you are with us... I'd tell you any thing I could to get you out of my business. I dont think Kawasaki or your dealer will miss you to be honest.

Its how many days later and you still have not told us the model of Kawasaki Mule. We can't get any pictures or really any reliable info. In fact, you contradicted your own story. No one is going to take your advice serious when you can't even tell us what machine you have.

Thanks for the advice. I checked ours. No issues. :tiphat: Good luck.

There are at least 3 completely different "Mules" in 2015, 2016, 2017 with different air intake systems.

That would matter to some one reading this thread. The 4000 series has a completely different air filter and air intake system that the PRO series. A potential issue on the PRO is not an issue on the other 2 models.

So tell me your thought on the one we have. You should have waited until I
was able to get the model instead of telling me it's not a problem. We use our side by sides. They go out early in the morning and get back at dark. Son has been taking it way off so it wasn't here for me to get the model type. I told you that but you kept going on and on.

Look up at my comments. My 4 wheeler is honda and we had issues with the warranty.


Is it a Rancher with the automatic? Mine doesn’t shift right it’s a real PIA sometimes.

Don't even get me started on the rangers. Lol.
