Kawasaki Brute Force Oil blowing out near air box

Recommended Posts

2005 750 Kawasaki Brute Force...oil started sptting out near my airbox. I've never had problems with my Brute Force until today. It is running fine. After the oil began to spit out, I let it cool and checked the oil level which was fine. Looks like it's coming out of a hose that goes from my crankcase to the airbox.....any suggestions ???

Do you ride wheelies alot? If so the is the reason when you get those motors on an angle the oil will start to go up the crankcase hose on its on and as you continue on and you give it more gas as you know the airbox is sucking air from the get go so it makes it that much easier to get to suck it into the airbox. Hope this helps.... oh also you can take the hose extend it to the handle bars and go to autozone and buy a $5 filter and put it on the end and elimanate the problem over all.

This is usually the result of overfilling it with oil just like Stoopidbot1 suggested.

Did you check the oil when it had been sitting cold or after it had run for awhile?

Thanks for comments...I did check the oil before this happened and it was actually a little below the full line. After the incident, I waited until it cooled and it checked about the same.

Also, I was riding wheelies on it a few hours before the oil spit out...but when it happened I had driven about 3 miles at 25mph on flat surfaces.

If it was just the one time, could have been too much oil and it blew some out. You checked the level it was then at normal. Maybe?

Long story short....I didn't do anything to it. Rode all weekend and didn't have any additional problems.

      Hi everyone! I'm from New Zealand, and doing up a Suzuki Lt50 for the kids. This is the first bike I've ever worked on, and it's currently not running. Hoping that both Google and this forum will get me through! Haha

      Hi,
      Have a 2005 grizzly 660. Just recently started backfiring and showing incorrect speed. Lifted seat and messed with wire going to starter relay, it stops for a bit but seems to come back.
      I ended up pulling all the pins out of the connector for the relay and added new pin/connectors for all 4 wires. fixed it for a little bit but came back shortly after. This was a new starter relay i installed a few months ago. Anyone know if a bad starter relay would do this?

      Hi guys new to this forum and thought I’d jump on as I’ve just bought my first quad a Kawasaki bayou klf300c 89 model. It had starting issues when I bought it so I’ve gone thru and replaced the cdi, voltage regulator and starter solenoid aswell as rebuilt the starter motor after all this it was still free spinning on electric start so I pulled the stator cover off to find the fly wheel wasn’t spinning so replaced the one way clutch bearing put it all back together and still not engaging at all. I’m at a loss and looking for some ideas on we’re to look next to solve the problem
      cheers Ben 👍

      I need help with wiring on a 1998 (I think, 10th digit of the VIN was W) Bayou. I'm not getting spark, I'm pretty sure it is due to grounds being off because the harness is pretty hacked as far as the electric start and charging system goes. I'm needing a good wiring schematic. I found one online and there are a few things that don't add up on it so I'm skeptical that it is really for my year and model. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

      Got a good deal on an 89 bayou 300. Couple questions. First is in the picture I have posted. Note the two wires at the bottom of the pic (white and black/yellow). They were not hooked up to anything and Im not sure if they are supposed to go to the battery or somewhere else and what they are for.
      Second question is I had the carb apart for a cleaning. The vaccum operated slide has a spring under the cap with a plastic clip that goes inside the spring. Is there a proper location inside the spring for that clip. Right now it is just below half way inside the spring.
      It runs alright but keeps fouling the plug. Pulled the plug off, cleaned it and dried it off and it starts back up but not sure how long before itll do it again, last time it was about 20 minutes of riding and it bogged out and wouldnt start.

      Ok...I'm gettin' me juevos ready to do an oir filter clean....
      Went to my local harley/quad dealer and he had me purchase the No-Toil kit (Cleaner, Air Filter Oil, Rim Grease)
      What I've read is that the No-Toil cleaner will NOT clean
      other oils off air filters....just the No-Toil oil....
      So, I've also read that others have cleaned their air filters
      in the kitchen sink, used gasoline, or used flash solvent....
      Looking for advice as I've mentioned I'm very mechanically
      DECLINED!
      I'm going to wash the air box seal in the sink and give it a good dry....
      One more thing......No-Toil or Bel-Ray for filter oil?
      Thanks!
      -TD
