I recently purchased a Brute, and it's amazing. I am often called by neighborhood kids in order to pull out stuck or broken down quads from the woods trails. Last weekend my son and two friends got stuck out in a snow storm. Two quads broke down and one had power. I pulled two of them out (about 5 miles) to their residence, but the third had its rear wheels locked up. I pulled him for five miles, up hills and through streams etc... My issue is that I think that the engine is making a jet engine type sound (whirring) when starting to get up to speed. It also occurs when letting off the gas and coming to a stop. I don't know if it always did this or if it is an issue due to excessive strain. It seems to be running fine, and I hope that it always made this type of sound (I simply can't remember).

Thanks

The transmissions tend to whine quite a bit. Is it more noticeable in low range?

Yes! It does occur at the lower range. It happens when I let off the gas and begin to slow donn, and it happens when I begin to get up to a mid to high range speed. Do you think that this noise was always there and I only noticed it after I thought I had done some damage. Is this quad capable of pulling a Recon 250 with locked up rear tires (in the snow) for miles?

it's not the KEBC actuator. but you're close.

it's the bearing in the faceplate that contacts the KEBC fork.

on decel it activates and touches on the bearing and its going bad.

remove the clutch cover and check the bearing on the front of the clutch to see if it spins smoothly.

Thanks , John,
I will have it checked. Could this bearing go bad with only 10 hours on the machine?

doubt that the bearing would go bad that soon

With just 10 hours on the machine are you sure you just aren't hearing the KEBC kick in??

10 hours take it back to the dealer. should be under warranty.

Ive noticed that when you pull with these quads it insanely accelerates the wear on the belts.
