Default 03 Prairie 650

Hello everyone,
I am having a problem with the KEBC on my step dads Kawi. the engine brake is squeeling.
The problem is with the bike in gear the acutator extends the forks of the engine brake. I am unsure with the issue is. It works just backwards.
Any help would be great.
Thank you
Medman

Yes he did prior to brining it over.

If the problem started when the new belt was installed, then there's nothing wrong with the KEBS. The belt is too tight. If it's chirping or squealing, but not creeping ahead in gear, you can leave it as it is. If it's creeping, you will need to adjust the belt deflection. It's actually the best set-up for performance and belt life as long as it doesn't creep in gear. Eventually the belt will wear a bit and the squealing will become quieter and likely go away.

It does creep alittle but not bad. However the KEBC engages when I put it in gear and really starts to squeel. I rode the bike alittle with the cover plugged in and in hand and no squeel, but the KEBC fork was engaged untill i put the bike in N.

The KEBS is working properly; it "pre-stages" when you turn the key on, but doesn't push the clutch in until it's needed. When the KEBS malfunctions and stays "in", it doesn't creep; it drives off and stalls when you hit the brakes to force it to stop.
As I posted above, if it creeps, then adjust the belt tension. If it squeals in neutral, then it's horrendously tight and should not be driven until you adjust the belt.
The short version: adjust the belt.
