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.

      Hello I'm new here and not sure on where this should be posted but here goes. I have a 2007 Kawasaki 360 4x4, it started to make a small knocking sound and few weeks ago. I checked all the normal things and didn't find anything. I just used it around the house as my yard machine, no real heavy loads or stress on it. And it ran fine with no problems. Well one day I went to roll my yard with my roller that i filled with sand. It put the 4wheeler under a load for the first time, well it ran fine for about 20 mins then i stopped to do something and it started but there was nothing there. It would not rev up enough to engage the belt drive and the knock got a lot louder. Sounds like the knock is coming from the top end. And ideas in where to start. I have worked on some stuff and mechanically inclined just never tore into an engine before.

      I have a 2017 Sportsman 570 SP with a power steering issue. Dealer tells me my machine is one that is not covered by recall and offers no help other than bring it in they will look at it. Any ideas?

      Bought a nonrunning 1996 bayou 400. Tore down engine and found major problems. Piston is damaged and cylinder liner needs replacing. Looks like cause was a broken oil pump gear.
       
      Question is can a piston from a prairie 400 be used? Is it the same engine? I assume the liner is replaceable?

      At 3am a white box trailer hooked to an SUV, color unsure, came to my backyard, cut the cables locking my 4 wheeler in and stole it. It is a 2018 Hunter green Kawasaki Brute Force 750. It has a light bar on the front and 28” Outlaw tires.

      So a few weeks ago ended up buying a 02 Bayou 300 for 100.00
      Get there to see it and motor was gone through and parts missing, stuff not connected
      and a big freekin bucket of parts and bolts. He said had no power and mechanic said it was
      the wrist pin. Ended up leaving it in pieces and left like that. I end up getting most of it back together
      and manage to get it to fire up. I drive it and has no power! No missing just no power. I figure check 
      the timing chain as he did replace that. Well I spin the motor over and guess what!
      A blind guy could have done a better jobs. Just one question, I  loosen the top bolt on the tensioner then remove it
      right? Nothing is gonna fall inside the motor is it? just making sure, need this out before I can move the cam gear 
      to the right location. Thanks in advance Az
