Default BF 650 and 750

i looking to buy a newer used atv this spring and i'm considering the brute 650 and 750. i've heard of a few issues with water going into the intake and airbox and differential issues. but how bad are they and what should i pay attention to? i'd be riding in mud/water and trail riding, should i get one? thanks

I have had Yamaha and Honda sport quads, and a Honda foreman, and my 750 brute has to be one of my all time favourite quads. Tons of torque and power, and handles pretty good. I would suggest a snorkel if you plan on a lot of mudding, just for insurance. Other than some maintenance and some common sense, you will be smiling.

Lifts and mud tires usually mean one thing....mudding! Lot harder on an atv than trail riding. Buyer beware

I usually dont go by kms, ive seen bikes with 2000km in worse shape then one with 10000, it really depends on how it has been driven and how its been maintained.

There is a thread stickied at the top of the prairie/brute section that talks about common issues with the brute
