I saw this on HL and i guess i would start one here.


Put anything down here on what you would like Kawasaki to change in these next few years on any Kawi machine. then if we get enough useful info we can send it in to kawi to help them from the customers point of veiw.

I would like to see it stretched a few inches, at least and 850, and fix the seals and stronger front differential.

Kawaie also needs to do something about the 4wd engaugement, how about being able to engauge 4wd on the fly instead of haveing to near about stop. I also agree with the better diff. seals. Also make the front diff.s stronger and better lubricated. Bigger motors to compete with the Caned Hams, and Popos. I am sure I will think of more later, but right now, this is the highlights. It probablly wont do any good to list all of this, because I have never herd of any Kawie designers keeping up with the forums. Just my $.02

Seals, Seals, Seals, Seals, Seals. That's something they need to work on bad. I have a yamaha and a Kawasaki and the Kawasaki has had a rear seal put in and now I have to replace the front. Not even a year old.

Okay here we go......

Output seals fail after a few rides - I think this happens on every one.
Air intake system is a joke - I dont care what Kawi says - Fix it.
Radiators plug up way too easy - Possibly larger fin spacing.
Upgrade all driveshafts/CV Joints - If you've ever compared a Brute to a Can-am you know what im talking about here.
What the **** is with the gas tank - I mean seriously.
Larger bumper tubing/stronger material/design - You really shouldnt be able to bend it with you hands.
Redesign tie rod ends so the nuts dont work loose - its an easy fix I know but why should you have to fix something so simple?
Keep the "Brute" look - Still the nicest looking machine out there.
Keep up with the times - Horsepower ratings havent been comparable for 2 years.
The Diff-Lock trigger was cool - 5 years ago - Keep up with the times!


All I got for now.

Good list, have to agree with it all. I really could not believe the gas tank during my first cleaning. Who in the world came up with this. The seals should be the #1 priority.

better protection on the airbox and intake would be good too. the air box on the brutes are higher than any other i have ever seen
