Default Rtv-x1140 Transmission issue

My 1140 has developed an issue with the transmission. It first started showing up as having to apply more fuel before itíd move, it reminds me of an older car auto tranny with a high stall speed torque converter. Recently it takes a bit of effort to get it to go. I thought before taking it to the dealer Iíd ask here for knowledge.
Important info
1-5,000 miles & 400+ hours
2- Iíve installed a turbo on it. I live on hilly terrain and itís made a world of difference.
3- I recently changed the fluid and filters in the tranny. I didnít do this due to the issue but per maintenance schedule. Itís gotten worse since the change, to the point that Saturday we started out and then stopped, 5 minutes later we start it and it wouldnít move at full throttle. I shifted back and forth from forward to reverse a few times and finally got it going

Welcome to the forum. Wish it was under better circumstances.


When you replaced the fluid and filters, did you use Kubota filters and Kubota's UDT or Super UDT fluid? Using other brands have been known to give you the problem you're having.

Welcome I don't know about your year model but a couple of years ago, there was a problem with the refill port location on the newer rtvs. It was sort of hidden so a few folks didn't fill the proper location and the transmission was actually very low on fluids because of this. Please check your dipstick and see if oil is on it. (the sudt is so clear, I have to lay it horizontal on my finger to make a wet spot in order to see it). Don't drive till you check it - just in case it's low. bordercollie

I used OEM fluid and filter. Looking at the dipstick I’m about 1/4” above the upper line.

Did you add the transmission oil to the hydraulic tank reservoir under the passenger seat. If its like the x1100 that tank drains when you do a change.

This has happened to several members on this forum with symptoms similar to what you are stating after a fluid change.

That was exactly the problem. It’s now as good as New.

Thanks for the help!

Good news is grreat to hear ! More than a few a while back as I referred to didn't know the proper place to fill and later found metal shavings after the transmission about quit. Kubota should make the proper refill place more obvious . I've never seen this model but am just going on the past when forum members had bad luck with it. bordercollie

In hindsight I could have looked thru the owners manual more closely but to be honest it never occurred to me that there could be another place Iíd have to fill to get in the appropriate amount of fluid.
