05 Kawasaki 750 brute force problems

Recommended Posts



Hey Christopher welcome to Quadcrazy, so glad to hear you got it running right.  The cooling system fan runs off a sensor that’s mounted in the radiator. On that sensor are two wires. While the bike is running take the two wires off the sensor and jump them together. The fan should come on.  If not then test the wires for 12 v. If you don’t have 12v then the fan power is obviously not there and it’s a mater of tracing the wires back to the source.  Keep in mind that some manufacturers have two points of protection in place, one is the fuse at the fuse block and the other is an in-line fuse that’s going to the fan.
 

If you do have power at one of the two wires going to the sensor and when you jump them together and the fan does not come on then your fan motor may be bad.

Ha we just  heard his story from another member who had a similar problem.  Turns out that when he was rebuilding the top end he put the coolant hoses on and reversed them by mistake.  I don’t know if you or anyone else worked on the atv but look there first.

The coolant hoses are correct I’m kind of thinking it is running rich or lean

I don’t know if that’s the case, could be but you would have a lot of black smoke from the exhaust?

Make sure your not running a hot plug and make any adjustments you think on the carb if you know where to set it and give it a shot. If not look for the usual suspects like the thermostat and water pump.  Check the coolant etc.

      my buddys 02? warrior cuts out as soon as you give it throttle. it stays running, but it missfires and pops through the exhaust. it returns to idle and idles fine. the timing looks ok and we have swapped the carb with no change.its been sitting a while waiting on carrier rebuild, it ran fine before that. any ideas?

      I have a Yamaha Timberwolf 250 2x4 that I purchased a while ago as a project. I fixed it up to where everything was working great in my opinion, however when I showed it to a potential buyer he complained about a vibration from the rear drive shaft. (Which I ridiculous seeing as he tried to wheelie it before that) Anyways I took the rear diff apart and found most of the seals and bearings where bad. So I bought a kit off of amazon only to find that it doesn’t have all of the bearings and seals. After finding that I decided to try to find a used good condition replacement but they’re all to expensive for me so is there a better alternative for me, or can someone point me in the right direction to get the rest of the parts?

      Hi all,
       
      Picked up my first Brute Force yesterday. What should have been an awesome afternoon of riding turn a bit into a deception. As I was unable to really take it out for a test drive at the shop, I decided to buy it and agreed that I would take the test drive at home. 
      When giving full throttle I noticed that the Brute was choking and lost all of its powers. Faulty fuel pump most likely. 
      Called the shop and the are coming to pick it up and repair it and bring it back. Good service. Nevertheless feels a bit sour in the mouth as I was told it was a 100% good. 
      Need to have some patience I now before I can really start riding. 
      Cheers,
      Erik
