Exactly like mine, but it's not in yet. Hopefully this week. Speaking of the black plastic, what is the best way to shine it up after it's scratched? ie: tire shine, plastic polish, armour all etc...:)

i like some stuff called extream alot of big truck places keep it in bulk by the gallon and you use a empty windex bottle or some kinda spray bottle. shines great and has a nice grape smell. but the dust likes it alot. ive used regular wet car wax and it does good to.

I'm looking at adding another battery to my 750 Brute due to my plow draining the battery. Has anybody added another battery or figure out why the plow draining a brand new battery? I thinking about adding a rear wrench. I saw it on a couple of four wheeler while I was on a atv trip in TN.

im running just a plain ole simple HMF slip-on bought it on ebay for $245 or somewhere around that price i cant really remeber but it also came with recominded jets, it sounds awesome ESPECIALLY when you go from 1/4-1/2 throttle to full, when it raps out i really like it, however the mechanic didnt jet my bike right (i dont think) and it back fires and misses every once in a while, but ive heard muzzys and hmf if i was goin to do it over and buy again id go hmf 100%!

thanks rwright for the info, my bro has hmf exhaust on his kingquad and it sounds awesome, i was leaning more toward the hmf anyway so probably will get one, i seen them on ebay for as low as $220, dont have to worry about jets as i have the efi brute, cant wait to get my exhaust.....notice any difference in performance other than that great sound?

I got a HMF Slip on form Dicks ATV shipped for $225. They have the best prices I have found. I have an "09 Brute 750 and it sounds good and could tell a difference in power.

Thanks fireman for the tip, will definitely check out the website, so did you have to modify the cpu on the brute for the slip on exhaust? Have you had any issues with slip on exhaust? Was it difficult to install?

the slip-on on a scale of 1-10 id give a 7 simply because they give you a pipe for your rear header (the stock header pipe is welded to the muffler) and you must take the old one off and put this new one on, its pretty difficult to try to get the old nuts off, however after you get the new one on check every once in a while to make sure the bolts are tight (this causes a clicking sound everytime the piston gets to the top of the stroke)

All in all its a awesome mod!
