Is it under warranty? Then they should fix it.

Find the VIN and call any dealer. They can tell you about the warranty. This is the first I have heard about this problem. Sorry dude.

I admittedly am not an engine guy. It should be easy to find a motorcycle or atv mechanic who will do a good job at much less than the dealer. Please let us know what they say about the warranty.

It sucks sooooo much that you pay that kinda $ and 350 miles it leaves you I can see if it had 2 or 3 thousand and it was pounder to death but this is not the case if I end up fixing it I will be selling and buying a mule fxt pro

Ouch that sucks. Who knows maybe the guy before you over heated the crap out of it and did t do a good job repairing it and that's why it blew.
Did you check the oil? Is it milky at all?
I would buy just about anything out there except a Mule. They don't stack up at all performance wise. Side by side with any other SxS on the market in its class they just get beat down. Look at the Teryx. We ride with a couple that has an 800 and they are really comfy! And they got it for cheap.
Sorry your having troubles azure...

Got me a cooler for beer

Let's ride
