New: 2019 BF 750 eps

Hey guys,


So long story short, out 08 threw a rod bearing. Currently figuring out the best path for a rebuild. This was my wife's and I've put a lot of time and effort into it to get it back to good. Then this happens! Oh well... almost 7k miles on it.


Anyway, not being able to ride sucks. And I already have a plow set up for a brute force that works VERY well. I will get the 08 rebuilt and use it as a work horse.


I ended up purchasing a 2019 Brute Force 750 EPS (blue) for a really good deal. 12 month factory warranty too. She doesn't have a clue... Headed to pick it up Thursday.



I am going to swap the wheels and tires over from the 08 on the way back. I also have a moose rear reciever hitch coming the same day and some blue hand guards that I hope match. I might move the HMF fuel mapper and pipe over to this one down the road unless she doesn't want it moved over. I really think she will learn to like EPS. She's rode my souped up can am a few times and isn't sold on power steering. I was the same way until I rode it on the trail. Can am has a selectable EPS setting (low, med, high) while it appears Kawi has a sensing non selectable. Will be interesting to see how that works.



Seems Kawi hasn't changed a ton over the years which isn't a bad thing. The only thing I don't like is the diff lock lever. I like pushbutton engagement or like my can am (an "auto") front locker.


I also plan to get some heat demon grips on it and install a KFI 3000lb winch. I may end up putting the 28" mega mayhems on it too if she wants them. I'd just need to get some 14" wheels.


Other than that the only other thing I can think of is upgrading the headlights to the Tyrex LED's.


I sure hope she likes it, it will ride better than that tired 08, the shocks were done.


I'll try to post a pic Thursday when I get it home.

Thanks guys. MSRP is 10k for these guys. Most are from 7900-10k brand new w/o taxes and registration. I picked this up for 6999.00 w/out taxes and registration.


I couldn't say no. It was just too good of a deal.


I'll have to get some pics of the my can am and the new kawi together. I've worked on both myself alot and each have their pros and cons for sure. I blew the seal on my rear diff on the can am and ended up having to replace it completely as can am's tolerances for backlash are complete trash and are that way from the factory. That diff lasted 1800 miles. The new one is shimmed correctly by a company out of canada and I won't ever have this problem again. But $850!!!! I replaced it myself along with the entire rear end bushing kit (garage products) that are supposed to be amazing. I've ridden once with the new diff and bushings and everything seems back to excellent.


Can't wait to be able to ride this fall with my wife!

Well, it’s home! The 08 will run again some day. I swapped the tires and wheels from the 08 and installed a receiver hitch on it before she got home(bought online a few days ago.) needs a winch, hand guards and heated grips. I will upgrade the lights to the tyrex. I noted some changes and all seems to be GOOD changes to the 19 vs the 08.

Wife was pissed “what did you do?! Are we just test driving it?!” Nope, 6 hour round trip, it’s not going back! then she cried and was happy. Really happy i could do this for her. She’s my riding partner

I think I'll be slapping the 28" mega mayhems on it. That won't be for a bit though, need new 14" wheels for those. Hopefully won't need a primary clutch then.

You shouldn't need any clutch work for 28's. If it feels sluggish swapping out the secondary spring will solve that.

Was hoping for no clutch work. I upgraded the primary on my can am and WOW it's night and day difference. The 08 kawi has a heavier primary spring which gave it a little more low end.


I might look to do the same on the new one, we'll see.


Just ordered a KFI winch, synthetic rope and mounting plate, winch stopper, and heat demon grip heaters.



I need to install a backup light on this one too, man those are so handy!
