2005 Brute Force Running Hot?????

Recommended Posts

My 2005 650 Brute Force Is Running Hot The Fan Is On 75 Percent Of The Time

Is That Normal?

My Hot Light Was Flashing The Other Day

When It Is Flashing Does That Mean "shut Down Now"

Or Does It Come On Solid When Its Time To Shut Down The Motor?

Thanks For Your Help

John

It is the hot time of the year, but that thing shoudl be able to stay at operating temparature and not have teh fan come on 75% of the time.

That's a Four-stroke, V-twin, liquid-cooled, SOHC, four-valve? I woudl check the coolant condition and level. also the oil level. Oil and coolant are what keep that thing running cool. Maybe it's time for a coolant flush?

Also,,,You may want to Take the Radiator off and spray water through the fins until the water is clear on the other side.....Plugged Fins will make it run hot too......After that,,,,Make sure that the Fins are Straight.....Reinstall it,,,,add Coolant and Fire it up....Keep the Cap Popped and make sure you have circulation in the Radiator....If you dont.....You may have a Bad Impeller on your Pump...

      I have a 2005 Yamaha Kodiak 400 Automatic. It has an oil leak inside clutch cover. The middle gear has two oil seals, the front seal is leaking engine oil into clutch area. How do you change the leaking seal?

      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

      Does anyone know ways to regulate the speed etc other then the throttle screw? I have turn it almost all the way and it won't move on hills but keeps getting faster on flat gravel roads. I have a Chinese quad that's bigger but is a 3 gear so I just put it in first and let my kids go nuts cuz it might rattle it self to S... but it only goes so fast

      Was using the quad the other day to shuttle wood from my pickup to my wood pile.  When the job was done I turned off the Quad and heard a bit of a racket from the front end.  When I got down underneath the sound seemed to be coming from the fan housing.  fan was moving in spurts and not quickly... much like a computer case fan that's had it's day.  What I know.
      Temp sensor is ok, as the fan tries to activate fan is getting some voltage as it is attempting to spin.  When I first bought it used I tested the fan direct to battery and it was fine. The fan was working ok even not direct wired as I went on a couple of rides and when stopped and idling the fan did run Seems to be free spinning with my finger read up in the manual and they require me to drop the rad.  now I'm not opposed to that as the rad has some damaged areas I want to try and straighten out.  But if I can get the fan working without, I can leave the rad as it is until next year.
      Fan assembly is about 300 bills, any work arounds or alternatives?  I even thought large computer case brushless fan.  smaller ones are about $7 larger ones better quality probably far below the 300.  They run standard 12v DC.
      Anything I should be doing before dropping the rad... other than check for obstructions even though it seems to spin, and trying to hardwire it to the battery again for a test to see if it acts the same?

      The Hop-Up: You may be saying to yourself, “that’s a chick bike,” and you’re right. But honestly, it’s so much more than that. It’s one badass bike. http://www.quadmagazine.com/quad/features/article/0,24942,1587044,00.html
