I have a 2007 610 with 823 hours on it. Several months ago it started idling rough, would die after a couple of minutes. The motor ran fine at low rpm; however, under acceleration it would develop a large amount of white smoke out the tailpipe and start missing. A Kawasaki dealer said it was a fuel problem and the carb was using too much fuel. They cleaned the carb, and the fuel pump, spark plug and fuel filter were replaced. I was told it will smoke a little until all oil is burned out of muffler and that they drove it and smoke is no longer thick. Unit idles and starts fine. Brought it home and after 3 hrs of running it again started smoking heavily and would not idle. So back it went to the dealer who now says that they re-checked the fuel system. After idling for a few minutes the engine died as before. The compression check showed 55 lbs. The dealer now says the engine is bad. Would you think 823 hours is low hours for an engine to go bad? Can the engine be overhauled or is a new engine really required? The mule is otherwise in good condition but is it worth putting another $2500 in it?
