  1. 06 prairie 360 actuator replacement

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Newbie question. The wire harness has broken wires right next to the 4 wheel drive actuator plug. A branch must have cut them. Is it possible to replace just the wire harness? Or do I have to buy a new actuator? Splicing will not work; wires too short. Thanks, rosco

  3. 4x4 not working brake actuator looks broken

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Hi, I have a 2005 Kawasaki 650 brute force. My 4x4 hasn't been working for over a year. I finally got around to taking a look at this. I've pulled the fuse box and fixed the connectors and I've recently pulled both 4x4 actuator and brake actuator off to look at them. I haven't checked if the...
  4. kawaski prairie actuator

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I have a 2007 Kawasaki prairie 360. The 2wd/4wd light started flashing. It flashes about every 2 seconds. The book said both actuators are bad. I have checked them and they work just fine. Any ideas as to why it is flashing? It won't go into 4wd with it flashing.

  8. 02 Prairie 650 Brake Actuator Squeals

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Has anyone come across this, or have any ideas? When I turn my key on and the KEBC actuator cycles it makes a fairly loud squeal and grinding noise. When I take it apart, it is clean and no debris in there. It seems to work perfect while riding. It makes the same noise after I turn the quad...
  9. 05 BF 750 Limiter Problem

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    My 05 BF 750 will not rev up no matter what gear. It is like the limiter is kicking in at about 1/4 throttle and then it spits and sputters. Runs and idles fine and can go about 20MPH still. Has a new belt and the the belt sensor was reset. Been told that it may be the actuator on the belt case...
