If you own a Kawasaki Mule with a high-performance engine or an aftermarket exhaust system, excess radiant heat can be a major issue. The heat can make its way up through the floorboards and create an uncomfortable environment inside the cab, especially when living in warm areas or during the summer season. The exhaust is another source of radiant heat that can be dangerous, as passengers can burn themselves accidentally. Fortunately, there are ways to prevent radiant heat from penetrating the cab and protect passengers from hot exhausts using heat shields, heat sleeving, and exhaust wraps.
At Everything Kawasaki Mule, you can find all the necessary heat protection accessories from top brands like Design Engineering, Custom Dynamics, and HMF Racing. Heat protection kits like the Kawasaki Mule Bodywork Protection Kit by Design Engineering are a great way to protect your Mule from radiant heat. The heat shielding kit is made from fiberglass and backed with a layer of aluminized reflective foil. You can easily cut and place these heat shields wherever you need protection, such as fairings, air boxes, seat pans, and rear fenders to prevent excess heat from melting plastic components and damaging electrical wiring and accessories on your Kawasaki Mule. The Kawasaki Mule Muffler/Exhaust Heat Shield Kit by Design Engineering is also an excellent option to keep your Mule cooler and prevent burns.
Exhaust wrap is another effective way to reduce radiant heat. The Kawasaki Mule Exhaust Wrap Titanium With LR Technology by Design Engineering is made from premium basalt with a proprietary weave and can withstand 1,200 degrees of direct heat and 2,500 degrees of intermittent heat. It comes in nine different sizes and can be installed in minutes. The Kawasaki Mule Fire Tape/Self Vulcanizing by Design Engineering is another excellent heat wrap.
Protecting your electrical wiring and accessories with heat wire sleeving is also essential to prevent damage from excess heat. The Kawasaki Mule Heat Sheath Aluminized Sleeving by Design Engineering is a great option to protect your Mule's wires, cables, and hoses from harmful heat. It is capable of withstanding 500 degrees of direct heat and 2,000 degrees of radiant heat and comes in seven different sizes.
