Simplified Kawasaki Teryx, Mule, and KRX Maintenance Schedules For Everyday Use

May 30, 2022

Some Kawasaki UTV owners would rather ride than repair; but if you don't conduct periodic checks, inspections, and maintenance, you won't be doing any riding after your bike breaks down due to derelict! The below maintenance schedules for Kawasaki side-by-sides are for everyday use, and should be shortened if your ride in harsh conditions like mud, sand, snow, water, etc. For some line items, you'll need to clean, adjust, lubricate, or replace parts as necessary. For other items, you'll want to have servicing done by an authorized Kawasaki dealer or someone equally competent. You'll save a bunch if you service your bike yourself, and thanks to the Federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, you're legally allowed conduct the requisite maintenance / servicing yourself without voiding the factory warranty -- that is, as long as you abide by the factory specifications. Another thing to note regarding UTV maintenance schedules is that there multiple ways to measure interval periods, such as hours of use, distance, and time. You'll want to conduct the needed maintenance / upkeep at whichever measurement comes first, be it hours of use or distance traveled. But we'll digress and let you get to the stuff you came here for!
