They also went through various cultural changes as they adopted Chinese ways more and more, pushing them away from conquering and taking up scholarly studies. Despite adopting the culture, however, they were never accepted as Chinese and became vulnerable.

Mongols divided the people living in China into 10 ranks, and the segregation was enforced quite effectively.
Yuan dynasty lasted from 1279-1368, 89 years.

Rene Grousset's Empire of the Steppes is a dated but essential work on the Mongol empire.

As a minority nationality,the Mongolia ruler implemented an unwise policy-nation discrimination.It caused the resistance of Han-Chinese and others.On the contrary,Man-chinese made themselves blended as well as other nations,so Qing dynasty existet 267 years,but Yuan dynasty Only existed 89 years.I think it only a major reason.

Also as pointed out, the Mongolian 'Empire' had not only Mongol but picked up other steppe people as they went through the steppe and into Europe, effectively by that time it would have been more of the latter, and as each descendants and descendants that claimed to be, struggled for power which lead to in-fighting, eventually weakening and causing fragmentation of the former empire, there were those who looked to restore its former glory, this made the Khaganates weak and prone to manipulation from the outside...its best to read for more detail...
