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.

Thank you very much I will give that a try tomorrow and let you know

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.

      I have a Yamaha Big Bear 350 and the reverse doesn’t work, it shifts from low to high easily but it won’t go back to reverse. I’m new to this stuff, so I’ll take any help. Any ideas?

      I need to figure out how to clean/fix or replace my neutral switch assembly On my 2008 Yamaha big bear 400 as generally the neutral light doesn’t come on when it is in neutral. To get it to come on I have to wiggle the foot shifter and hold it in just the right spot.
      I have googled it and can’t find much on the 400’s. I can’t find a service manual online and the parts manual is super vague.
      I think it is in the right side engine cover area, but not certain. 
       Any help would be great. thanks
      Scott

      Hello everyone, did a search and not successful. Purchased new 2017 Sportsman 570 sp and my power steering is not working. Seems to have a mind of it's own. Works then it doesn't. Dealer says there's not a fix. Thought it was just me and it being a brand new machine with 4 hours on it. Dealership said it's this model only ? Not sure what a person in this spot is suppose to do and wondering are your thoughts mite be. Thanks

      I have an '02 Taurus with 85k miles on her that I just bought.  Today when I was checking something under the hood I noticed this metal line cold and dripping with water...
       

       
      I had the air on but turned to the position of arrows pointing out of the dash and floor vents only.  The defrost or a/c function was not selected.  It seems to be doing it consistently.  I haven't traced all the parts of this car's a/c system yet but I don't know of anything else under a hood that turns cold and sweats.  Why would my compressor be working when it's not selected?  What tests should I run?
