06 Brute Force 750 - How to clean out front diff

Just purchased an 06 Brute Force 750 from a friend. Checked the front diff fluid tonight and it is full of thick mud and water. What can I run thru it to clean it out and what fluid is the best to put back in?

I already drained and filled a few times and it is still coming out bad.

I would run some diesel fuel in it. That will give it a little lubricity but also act as a solvent to break down the oil. But I wouldnt run it long with that stuff in it while riding it. I'd probably just jack it up off the floor and just fill it up with diesel and rotate the front end to slosh it around and empty and repeat that a bunch till the diesel coming out is clean. I dont think it would hurt the clutch disks inside?

Use diesel to flush it then add Mobil 1 V-Twin 20-50 synthetic. $10.00 a qt. Started using this after my front end on my 02 Prairie 650 locked up and as recommended by NYROC.

Is there a way to check what seals are leaking? oil isn't leaking out but that doesn't mean water is going in..

you need to replace it with 10-40 not 20-50 (Amsoil!!)but anyway When I come across diff that have the really think stuff in there I have used a degreaser like Purple Power. Put it in there and leave it sit for a while, the trun the tires, (jacked up off the ground) with your hand to stir it up and keep repeating till most of the really bad stuff it out, then diesel , then cheap oil then the good stuff. But that is if its really bad. The reason to put the degreaser in there is to break up the chunky stuff so it will come out the drain hole. then the desil thins everything out that is left and "washes" the inside, then the cheap oil will get all of the diesel.

Diesel fuel is the best for cleaning it out. I generally use a plastic spray bottle to wash down the milky residue and let it drain out the bottom. Works really well.

I just flush it with cheap oil several times till it drains clean. I think you can run seafoam thru it also. I just run the cheap oil in it & change it after every ride or two

Agreed. The book states specifically not to use ANYTHING other than whats recommended in the diff's... otherwise you'll have more problems. Have heard this on many forums as well, not just this one.

to be honest the best thing to do is just run oil through it till it starts to look like oil and then change it after every hard ride. I change mine every 3 rides. The rear diff isnt bad. Just change the front when you change your oil and you will be fine

if the mud wont drain out easily, the best way to clean it is to take it apart.

Hello,

Actually one may note that on Page 129 of my owners manual for my 07 Brute, it states "Although 10W40 engine oil is the recommended oil for most conditions, the oil viscosity may need to be changed to accomodate atmospheric conditions in your riding area." This is an exact quote.

10W40 is good for -10 to 104
20W50 is good for 0 to > 104

I use 10W40 ATV oil in my crank case and use Mobil 1 V-Twin motorcycle oil (meets Kawasaki spec) in either 10W40 or 20W50 in the Front Diff.

Joe

The only difference is 10, not saying your wrong or right but it has a hard enough time lubricating with 10w-40 let alone 20w-50, its your machine but if you read this website alot you'll see all the problems guys had running thicker oil in front diff, just about every brute owner will tell you 10w-40 in front diff, The 20w-50 mobile 1 v-twin is specifically design for the motor not diff
