I appreciate that you do that. Thank you.Thanks, I feel its my obligation to look out for the elderly. DM you really have 11k on your Brute?
Yes I do. I did replace the stator and fuel pump at about 8000 miles, other than that it has been 100% trouble free.
I don't beat or abuse it. I used Valvoline 10w40 ATV oil for the first 5000 miles and then switched over to Kawasaki 10w40 full synthetic and WIX XP oil filters. I change the oil, oil filter and replace the air filter with a OE air filter every 500 miles.
As far as I can tell it runs as good as it did the day I bought it. Its been an excellent machine.
