Does anyone know if these exist from JD or anywhere for that matter? Went by local dealer and no luck, but did manage to get a couple printouts on the clutches. Got it used with 160 hrs after bro in law passed away knowing it had been setting up for quite some time and would not shift correctly- figured rollers in clutch, but first tried adjusting idle lower and spraying clutches with dry graphite. It did help a little but not a complete fix. Before going any deeper, it began to “surge” on idle but would run ok once throttle opened up more. (Suspecting Low speed jets) Removed carb, soaked, cleaned, new gaskets, new fuel, lines, filters, and it cranked right off the bat. Now I can’t get the freaking thing to idle down. I can touch the governor linkage with the slightest bit of pressure, and it comes down appropriately. Does the governor ever need adjusting? What is the obvious thing I missed?

Bumping this post to ask if anyone has a source for the PDF version of the technical service manual? I no longer own a computer with a CD drive. Or if anyone has a 2014 550 XUV S4 CD, and can copy it to PDF, I'd be interested in paying for it.

Many vendors on eBay also offer pdf copies if you ask, prior to any purchase of a manual confirm with JD as to which manual version you will need.

As a FYI, JD does not use the Date of Manufacture for reference when you purchase parts, they use the Product Identification Number or PIN. This number is located on the outside of the frame in front of the right rear wheel.
