brute 750

3 posts in this topic

Just changed oil on my brute last night.Have a couple questions I cleaned the air filter with some fram air cleaner solution let dry and them sprayed with fram spray that is used on the air hog filter will this work or should I pull it off again and reclean and spray with the right oil. Might just go buy new filter and put in tonight but want to keep the old one for a spare.

You should be good with the fram oil. I used to use that stuff for a while. Any brand of foam filter oil should be good to use. I use Bel-Ray filter oil and I like how tacky it is compared to some that seem more oily.

I wouldn't worry about using it. I will suggest a Uni filter though. It fits a little more snug in there and the filter cleaner and oil can be had at dennis kirk for under $20. The filter I believe was around $20 also. I use that and the stock one. I put in the stock one when the Uni is drying after I wash it.

The reason I suggest it is because it is a little taller than the stock filter. When you hit the gas on the brute (you can't see it, but)the filter is sucked into the cage that is under it. That makes the edges a tad shorter and can possibly let dirty air in around the edges. There isn't much proof of that, but I understand that is what the filter does. Whether it actually wears on the engine more, I don't know. There are people with thousands of miles on these 750's. I have 1200 on mine and not any problems, except that I think the choke cable sticks a bit sometimes. If my memory serves correct, you have EFI, so you wouldn't have that problem.

Sorry for the book. wink

    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
    • That's what this Cooper's Hawk was doing, right in the middle of the street. Has a nest in the top of the neighbors birch tree. Watched them all Spring with their young. Was pouring buckets here and this guy sat in the middle of the street for ten minutes flapping and spinning around. Think he was having a good time! First and third shots are while he was fanning wings. Camera didn't want to subject auto-focus  on full zoom with the amount of rain coming down, but figgered I wanted to get the pics. Hawk was half a block away
