As a Kawasaki Mule owner, there are many things that require routine maintenance. Air filters, engine oil, and oil filters should all be regularly changed and replaced. However, if there is one thing that deserves your care and attention more than anything else, it is your brakes and brake pads. When you're racing through off-road trails, there's no telling what could be around the next corner. This means that being able to stop your Kawasaki Mule on a dime is paramount, and your Kawasaki Mule's brakes should always be kept in tip-top shape.
Taking care of your Kawasaki Mule's brakes starts with looking after your brake pads. Just like with your car or truck, your Kawasaki Mule's brake pads should be regularly replaced with fresh brake pads. It's hard to put a number on just how frequently you should be replacing your brake pads, so it really depends on how hard and frequently you ride your Kawasaki Mule. Those who are into more fast and intensive riding with a lot of stopping and starting should probably change their Kawasaki Mule's brake pads more frequently, whereas those who are only using their Kawasaki Mule for easy, leisurely rides can afford to go longer between brake pads.
If you're looking to replace your Kawasaki Mule's worn out factory brake pads or you're just looking to stock up on replacement brake pads so you're ready when you need them, you've come to the right place. Here at Everything Kawasaki Offroad, we've got a selection of the best aftermarket side by side brake pad replacements for the Kawasaki Mule from all the top brands, such as EBC and Moose.

And for all the Mule owners out there that like to ride mountainous terrain, you know that going uphill in your side-by-side is one thing, but coming down the other side is a different story entirely. A good set of brakes should not only grant you instant stopping power, but they should also withstand the tribulations of the trail, which include moisture, mud, grit, and heat from extended stretches of constant braking.
Many Kawasaki Mule owners complain about mushy or spongy brakes on their brand new vehicles, which is typically due to negligent dealers that didn't clean up the film coating over the brake rotors that Kawasaki sprays on before shipment.
