2006 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 - Opinions ??

Recommended Posts

I found a 2006 Kawasaki Brute Force 750 thats fore sale. I can get it for $3000. It has 355 hours and a little over 1800 miles. It has a newer body. It is the blue color and marked efi on it. The guy tried to pass it off as being fuel injected and that the choke simply idled it up. I told him that efi did not come out until 2008 and that color was not available until 2007.

I kind of feel that if he is not being honest about that, then what esle is he hiding. It starts good and I rode it around a small parking lot and seemed to ride all right. Couldnt really get it up to a good speed due to room.

Is it worth going for? Anything on these to look out for or any years better than others? Thanks..

Wondering if it is worth $3000. with the miles and hours. Only issues I see is broken tail light, needs new control arm bushings, and the winch cable was pulled out all the way and then quit. Here are some pics.

He was asking $3,900. Finally said lowest he would go would be $3,000. I kinda figure by the time I fix the things, then I might be better off buying one that actually has fuel injection.

      Hey I have a 97 bayou 300 2x4 (klf300b) that i bought for 1000 last June and sunk another 1000 into it already.  When i went to look at it, the seller had warmed it up before hand (he was riding it when I got there).  it ran good so i bought it and took it home that evening... next morning it wouldn't hardly start.  I discovered the carb was clogged, there was chunks of rust in the fuel valve, the choke lever was missing and other things.  I have since cleaned the carb and replaced the fuel valve and gas lines and cleaned out the gas tank and cap.  
      Enough background on it, the problem is this:  It floods if i push it past half throttle in 4th and 5th gear even going downhill and shifting correctly.  It also has to idle and warm up when you first start it which is really annoying now that its cold...  It also smokes blue smoke for about 15 seconds when started cold-  does not smoke at all once warm but the exhaust still smells like burnt metal.  A friend told me that it didn't have enough compression.  I also found out that the valves are a common cause for low compression on Kawasakis..  I have never adjusted valves before-  the most I've ever got into a engine was a head gasket on a riding mower so I'm new to this.  My goal is to get this bike running and starting cold like a top-  should i tear down and rebuild the top end?  What should i try first?  I tore the carb apart and rebuilt it and fiddled with the air screw and nothing changed.  I also ordered a compression test kit that should be coming in soon.

      Ive also considered just selling it for like $500 and taking the hit-  Id rather not sink too much more into this machine..  lol

      this bike! did this guy sucker me or what.. ok, looks like this means something is bent that I do not see or one rod is longer vs the other?
      how long do you think this would last before it ripped into the tire? this is the right side, left side tire clears no problem

      Hi everyone,  I'm about to get my first ATV, 02 bayou 220.
      Neighbor said I could have it if I fix it, Carburetor problems, and needs a new ignition switch. last ran 2 years ago, said he changed the oil in it twice a year and never ride it hard.
      Hope I got me a good ride.

      So my stock 2017 750 KQ came with Carlisle AT489 Bias Tires
      On Amazon these seem to have excellent reviews although the thing I here the most cumulatively on the forums is the first thing to change is the tires. 
      Are these tires all that bad? They seem to be holding up nice and i go on some pretty serious black diamond trails. Granted this is my first ATV purchase and i don't really have anything long term to compare these to. 
      Please lace me up if im missing something here because if buying a new set of tires will increase performance - reliability- comfort - im all for it... Also if you guys could recommend some tires for the trails I'd appreciate it. I don't mud and don't plan to if that helps narrow down the search.

      have an 05 750, and she bangs out when you give it gas.
      Idles fine. Also the belt light is flashing, even after a new belt was put on.
      Any ideas?
