Ok I know this is a dead subject but I got to know am I the only one on here to have trouble out of my 2008 brute With that being said I love my brute but I think when it comes back from the the dealer I am going to get rid of it. kawi. wont admit that there is a problem so I'm not going to have a bike that is broke down every 2 months my bike only had 146 miles on it never been sunk :dunno: did anything change from 07 to 08 beside fuel injection are the 09 different

hte only difference between the 08s and 09s are the stickers on the side of the fenders i think
but i could be wrong
and as for your problem
i heard that when you first get it let it warm up five minute before each ride
then dnt go over 30 mph
i thought it was crap but i dnt know

don't keep it. i start having similer problems and so did my dad. mine was the rear main seal and start smoking. took care of it didn;t do any mudding i took it to the dealer laid it to them and they fixed everything, kaw tried to give me **** too i takl to the rep let him have it, thank good for the pics i tookk and fixed everything. when the brutes work they wrk and do the job better than any bike to me for the money. but when they are a lemon they are a lemon, and you can go to any forum, and anyone who has problems with one will continue.i have been lucky since having mine fixed. but if you can afford it i would sell it and i don't know what to tell you, bite the bullet and get a Can-am, 3 year warrenty, and **** load of power, my uncle as one and its bad ace. but for the money you can not beat a good working brute force

Love my 08. No major issues, I cooked a belt at 155kms, but that was my own fault. Had an overheating issue when out on the trails when I first had it, I cut out the grill so it is open like the 07's and now can get my hand and a water bottle in there to give it a good cleaning on the trail.

There is a guy who has a BIG farm here in the county where I live. He uses Mules and Brutes on it...It is about 15,000 acre farm....He has a 06 & 08 Brute Force. He brings them in once every 6 weeks for service. the 06 has about 8,000 miles on its original engine. The 08 has about 3500 miles on it and no problems but wheel bearing and normal wear. NO motor problems out of either....That make me think how tough they can be....but you can always get a bad one in any brand.

I think rear seals are a problem on most of them. One of my friends and I both bought the 08 Brute 750's within a week apart and both started leaking at the rear seal within 2 days apart.
