  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...

  6. Knock in the CVT cover

    Kawasaki Brute Force/Prairie/Bayou
    I'm having an issue with a loud knock on warm up with my Prairie in the CVT cover. After a short ride the knock goes away. I don't like it and I think that it could be excessively wearing components in the clutch area. Does anyone else have this problem and if so how can I fix it? Thanks in...

    I'm having an issue with a knock in the CVT area. It doesn't affect performance in any way but I just don't like to hear it and know that it could be tearing up other components or putting excessive wear on the quad. Does anyone else have this issue and if so what do I need to do to correct this...

  9. Water tight?

    Kawasaki KFX700 V-Force
    I was wondering if the CVT cover had to be completly sealed with all 8 bolts? And if so is it water tight or does it need to be? My problem is i broke off 3 bolt heads and extracting hasn't worked. So i thought if i can tighten the other 5 i would be fine? or No? please help.
