Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX am I speaking to ?
If you can give me the 17 digit frame number I would like to run your serial number that will give me the exact model and also how many hours are on this unit ?
James I look all my question up by the frame number there for I can give my customers the BEST possible answer, I'm opt'ing out and I will let one of the other experts guess what you have, by the way that is not the model code !
You have seen may fuel pump failures on these fuel injected mules right? yes i have seen fuel pump failures on these units.
where is the frame number located?
yes we can but if it is the wrong unit i may not have accurate info for you. lets give it a try.
i have talk to the Kawasaki rep about this issue they had an ATV that had the same issue. the issue was the owner was fueling up on his farm with plenty of dirt and dust getting into the fuel tank from the gas can. the dust in the air was getting in his fuel tank also. they had him use all kinds of filter when filling the gas can and fuel tanks and the fuel pump issue went away. since that was done.
the best way to confirm if it is a fuel pump is a fuel pressure test with a fuel pressure gauge.
yes that is the best way to test the fuel pressure is have it in line to do the test. yes the ethanol is the major issue also. as the ethanol attracts moisture and that can cause corrosion or deterioration in the fuel system.
i am not a fan of av gas as it is meant to be used at very high elevations. the best that can be used is racing fuel as it is consistent and a higher quality but i understand very expensive to use for every day use. mixing it 50/50 with pump gas can help.
i would use the mule housing with the pump from the ninja
no not too much pressure as the they run about the same pressure and the regulator is what adjusted the fuel pressure. the running fuel pressure is about 45 PSI and the pumps will put out more than 52 PSI plus and the regulator brings the pressure to the needed running pressure.
if you have more questions I would be glad to help
