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.

      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

      Hi all, new to this forum so thanks in advance for the help.

      I have recently brought a 2013 power steering fuel injected foreman 500.

      It has a crack in the front casing and was running rough. I have since replaced the front engine casing and this has made no difference to the engine performance.

      It starts and idles but bogs down and starts to die once throttle is applied.

      It maybe be but it also sounds very load.

      I have uploaded a video link of it.

      Well this is my first time tearing down an ATV. Have done a little work on 2 stroke's in the past, but not much. I'm needing some help. I've got a Bayou that has lost compression. I tested it, and it was like at 40psi. I had already set the timing on it, and it does have spark fuel, etc...
      My question is about the cylinder. To me it looks pretty toasted, but need some help in determining. It is a 2000 Kawasaki Bayou 220. I bought it not running, just to see if I can get it running so it has not ran since I bought it. This question is about the cylinder, and part 2 I have will be about the CAM.
      Any advice / help is greatly appreciated.
      Inside sleeve a line(left line) runs the length that I can feel with my fingernail. The line on the right I can't feel.

       
      Some rust it looks like on these two pictures.
       

      Thanks!
