I bought it used and it was an oil burner but that was the previous owners fault. Did the top end on it last fall and it's been a good machine. Only issue with Kawi V-twins that I know of are the weak valves. Mine was hard starting cold due to low compression from the intakes being tight. The valve heads actually deform making for tight valve clearance. I replaced all the valves when I did pistons and rings on mine. Not cheap but little bit of reassurance I won't drop a valve eventually.

My buddy loves his Wolverine, lives in Sask and says it handles any rough trail he puts it thru. He had a rzr and a teryx before and says hands down the yammy is way better.

Yah life changes over the last couple years has taken a toll on me posting pics on here, Facebook is about the only place I share them when I have time

Offer still stands if you and a group want to head this way. Atoyot messaged me a couple weeks ago looking for some options out here, hope to meet up for some riding when he's out.

I have an 07 brute force 650, 4000kms 430 hours.

I had the same valve issue, where the intakes would tighten up after one ride, and it couldnt build enough compression to start. Same thing, I changed the intake valves, the heads were all sunken/stretched..

Im not sure what causes this, it could simply be weak materials. Or perhaps since it was used, maybe somebody drove it with a dirty dirty air filter which ruined the valves.
If it was running lean the exhaust valves would be done too, mine were just fine so I reused them. Replaced timing chains, good for another 4000kms. It rips and is very reliable. V twin power!!
