    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I have no experience with atv mechanics at all but last week I decided to try my luck fixing my dads 4wheeler, a 2001 KVF300 automatic 4x4. I started by draining all the old fuel out of it, cleaning the carburetor, and changing the oil and oil filter. I also put a new battery in it. I've never...
