  1. New (replacement) Belt Break-in?

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I just put a new belt in my 2005 BF 750. I did the upgrade to a Teryx belt and it fits fine. Here's the question. OK, I've heard about breaking in new machines. 10 hours of various throttle and speed but not wide open. But is that for the belt or the engine or everything? What do you guys...
  2. Break-in period for new Brute

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    Just bought a 2011 Brute 750i........manual says the "first service" must be done after 10 hours, (which is an approximately $400 service). Seems too soon. What is everyones take on the when's, how's, and why's regarding the importance of the break-in period and the first service? Part of me...
