2009 Kawasaki Brute Force 650i shifting problems

Recommended Posts

I have a 2009 Kawasaki brute force 650i that I bought from a salvage dealer. When it was bought it had 98 miles on it. Everything that was broke was fixed including a new crank and piston rings (the motor was apart). However one problem remains it will shift in all gears but will not engage in all gears. The shift linkage can be adjusted so that it shift to all gears but low does not engage or it can be adjusted so that it shifts to all gears but reverse is not engaged. I just can't get both low and reverse to engage with any adjustment. Also the only indicator light that ever comes on is the neutral. I have been told that the shaft might be bent or the bracket on the end. They both look good to me. Any suggestions.

Sorry for the late response, I did not see this post until now, it must have been moved in from somewhere else.

If a bracket was bent, or something was reassembled incorrectly, that could cause the problems you are having. I would look to see if there are any parts in the linkage that could possibly be put on differently, possibly a bracket that needs to be turned around. Maybe there is a bracket that could be bent a little and you can't tell because you have only seen it the way it is now. You might try bending something to help gain some more adjustment.

I will be adding the year make and model to this thread title.

      Hi All,
      Hoping someone will be able to help.
      I have a 2006 Kawasaki Prairie 700 with twin Keihin Carbs CKVR D32. The Rear Carb is leaking out the side during cranking. it is not the float bowl overflow. It is on the opposite side of the carb from the diaphragm. 
      I got this bike not running and someone had already messed with it. I took the carbs apart , cleaned and rebuilt. Everything went pretty easy.  It looks like it could be missing a small tube between the carbs but I have all of them listed in the service manual installed. See the pic for where it is leaking from...
      Any help would be much appreciated.. Thanks.

      I cannot get this drum off, I already have another drum and backplate on order because I've ruined this one trying to get it off. Completely rusted to splines. I cant fit any hub or wheel puller known to mankind onto these lug studs to try and pull it off, I'm really running out of ideas.

      So, I've been having issues with my Bayou 220. It's gotten to the point where it was parked for 4 years just because of the issues.
      Issue 1, Grabby clutch: The clutch is adjusted incorrectly and grabs when shifting from neutral to 1st. It grabs before the engine has a chance to rev, which stalls it.
      Issue 2, Starter clutch blown out: The starter clutch is busted and spins free both directions.
      Issue 3, bad shocks: The springs or shocks are bad and the quad leans hard when getting on.

      Out riding last week. My son was riding my friend's Rincon. He was falling behind. I looked back at him and the left front tire was sideways. I thought, damn, I know what that is.
       
      The inner rod end ball had busted out of the socket housing. I was able to pop it back in then tied it up with pull start rope.
       
      Worked well enough to limp it back at slow speed.
