I've been looking to buy an atv for general hunting and maybe light food plot preparation. Have an opportunity to buy a 2009 Kawasaki Brute Force 650i 4x4 with an aluminum trailer for a really good price. ATV only has 300 miles on it.

If anyone owns one (or a Kawasaki atv) what has been your experience with it?

Thanks!

Marty

i had a 750 and loved it. put a new rev box on it and could wheelie up and down the road all day with 29" tires on it.
Great bike-only complaint is that with a belt drive your always revving high. i was used to creeping through the lease in 3rd gear on a honda foreman all nice and quiet and the Brute was a change from that.

had to sell it and get a teryx so i could take the kids on rides.

I have a 2007 750 brute. NRA camo edition. I love it. Lots of power and bone stock. The only complaint I have is that it tends to get hot fast so the fan runs all the time.

For some reason you seldom see Kaw's talked about on these forums. However, I've never read a bad review about them.

Love the kawasaki's and have had a bunch on the farm. Tough machines with lots of power...I'd say buy the thing and thank me later.

I have an older 300 Bayou. Reason I went with smaller is because if I get in trouble I can still manhandle it when I am by myself. Wealth of Kawasaki info here- http://www.kawieriders.com/

I have a friend that rides one. His only complaint it that it uses a lot of fuel.
