I have an 08 650 brute force. put it in 4wd n went into the mud. i noticed the rear was pulling n sinking but the front was not pulling. i turned the wheels to where there was little resistance from the mud n they started to turn. My belt light is on also, could that be my problem?

Hello,

The belt light that is on is causing the problem.

Thanks

The above is a video of the '09 Brute Force.

Back to your problem.
If there is a loose bet light is on, this could be your problem.
But, I read it is shaft driven (2x4/4x4 shaft) and

Transmission Dual-range CVT plus reverse with Kawasaki Engine Brake Control

Also you listed your '08 650 brute force under a bicycle listing.

How do you get the tire off a 2005 Dakota once the lug nuts have all been taken off.


Hi Richard:
These can be a PITA!
The diameter of the centre of the wheel can be a nasty tight fit.
Here's a couple of techniques:
- Old brute force trick......... use spare tire as "pendulum" hammer and smack the stuck tire... front.back.front.back
- If front tire, turn all the way to side being removed.... but block of wood between rim and frame.... turn back against rim.
- Put lug nuts back on leave slack. Lower vehicle back to ground and drive slowly forward and back. If front tire, turn back and forth.
Sometimes this will loosen them
- If rear tire, slide 4X4 across from under vehicle. block so it is against rim, then smack 4X4 with LARGE sledge hammer.
- Some people apply heat to the centre of the wheel where it is jammed. I don't like doing that.
BRUTE FORCE is much more satisfying.
Cheers.

I was mud riding on my 2010 brute force. Well when I was in a hole it died when I came out it started knocking on the front of the motor by the cylinder real bad.


may have got some water/mud sucked into the engine via exhaust if you did'nt keep the revs well up , take out the plug and check , and drain the oil to see if the crankcase isn't contaminated also

97 sierra put truck in 2wd have clicking drivers front put back in 4wd went away


First guess would be to check the drivers side, CV-joint assembly. After that is "OKed" then I would move to the front output shaft and then onto the rear drive-shaft. Checking for bad U-joints. Let me know if that helped.

Vibrating at 50 mph


Hi,
It's likely a tire balance issue. One of the wheel weights may have fallen off. You could try swapping the tires front and rear to see if the issue goes away, or take the tires back to where you last bought them and see if they'll rebalance for free.

Also, if you ever drive thru mud, the mud could have dried to the inside of the wheel causing an imbalance.

I have a 94 mitsubishi montero ls. it started making a noise as if it were throwing a front wheel bearing. I pulled over and check the front hubs for heat. None was found. So with hopes it would change...


Possible, but any noise should be investigated fully. Start by checking front diff oil, then transfer case oil. Best to just drain both then look for any metal in oil.

Np231 bought it with 4 inlift and 33:stire clicks when you have it locked in and turn left or right u joints look ok ! maybe the aligment of the rear end or angle.it dose drag and gets on a bind...


All 4x4 vehicles do this. My 2000 cherokee does this as well. The transfer case has no provision to mitigate the forces between the front and rear differentials.The idea of part time 4x4 is that you would use it only in rain or snow or mud.You would not notice this as much under these conditions.

When i put into 4 wheel drive high,it chugs and fights with me when i turn replaced u joints and tierods under truck


they all do that when you are on a dry cement surface. The truck is designed for sloppy mud or snow, and 4H. 4Low is for straight slow pulling, or climbing. Use 4 H and don't turn too much on dry surfaces. You won't notice it in the snow. Its like a locked axle.

When i have my 4 wheel drive engaged making turns


If you are in 4WD, and not on a slippery surface, the tires may be having an effect called "scrubbing" where the tire on the outside of the turn is not rotating at the same rpms as the tire on the inside of the curve. I have noticed this on my jeep wrangler in 4wd.

Using 4wd on dry or non-slippery surfaces can cause this problem, and also will cause excessive tire wear.

Try the same manuever on a gravel road or a ice patch (it's been in 90s here in Texas, so good luck on that one) and see if it is improved.

Also, would probably expect a little more effort to steer when in 4wd because the universal joints or CV joints are not in perfect alignment during a turn.
