Default Kawasaki mule question

I have a '14 Kawasaki 4010. It starts and idles fine but wil go for an it and then just quit and when it comes to a stop it is still idling. Pump the gas a few times and it takes off again but it's the same process. I'm pretty sure it's fuel related but anybody with similar experience and info would be much appreciated

Both of ours do it all the time.

From what I understand its a humidity problem Kawasaki knows about and wont fit. They only have problems with it in the south. First time back to the dealership the clean whatever is wrong then the second trip they fix whatever the problem is.

Yeah we haven't been real happy. We buy at least one new mule a year every year and they do this kinda crap to us.

Thanks I have a fuel filter I'm taking with me this weekend, I'm just trying to keep from hauling it to the dealer for 3 weeks if it's an easy fix. Any idea what the part is they have to clean?

Its more than likely the fuel filter clogged up. Ours used to do this all the time randomly. Put a new filter in and we would be good for another year.

I think they had an issue with that and it might have even been a recall or free repair. Call you dealer.

Fuel filter.is my guess, but I worked on a polaris for 2 years that would start then die especially in the rain or fog. nd wouldnt restart. Checked compression, spark, and fuel. Had.them all. Finally on a whim I put in a new sparkplug. Walaa, cured it. Plug wouldnt work in the compressed atmosphere.

Not the first idea. Wish I knew.

If its an injected motor they probably clean the throttle body.
