Engine Brake Fork

Has anyone removed their's from the belt housing? I am told it will be a good improvement because it eliminates the brake at speeds slower than 3mph and get an extra 2mph at the top end.

i just removed mine it was easy to do, i just got my 750 back with a fresh motor so i still have to break it in. i,m hoping to have good result without it.the only thing is i don,t know how to stop the 2w 4w light flashing back and forth. if anyone give me their two cents on this that would be great!

I just did mine as well. Actually the dealer did it while they were in there for warranty work. What he took out is a spring and the fork itself. He left the shift motor on so the lights don't come on. He told me that all he had to do is remove a c-clip and it came out.

It wasn't the noise really. I removed mine for better belt life and I found it annoying at slow speeds. Because I don't have it on now my machine takes off better with less resistance.

4wheelfurry took out my engine brake. Just remove the C clip. It actually prolongs the life of the engine brake because your not using it anymore. It will still slow down up to a certain speed. If you have any after market springs or clutch kit I recommend you do this or you will have problems with the engine brake. Just remember your driving a different machine afterwards that can freewheel.

thanks for that info guy, know for my end of the deal remove the belt cover, then remove the 3 8mm bolt on the brake actuator, carefully pull off actuator and set aside, i didn,t unplug mine when i did it. in side the belt cover is the brake fork and spring, remove the clip at the bottom. now the brake assembly can slide up and out of the top of the belt cover. before you put the actuator back in place put some silicone on the joints of the mounting plate of the actuator, install actuator with the 3 bolts, then install the belt cover and your done. if anyone can see a mistake in my instructions feel free to add to it

like someone said earlier on this post the atv will be quicker off the line and possibly a few more mph. I read somewhere on a site can,t remember which one that if you take two identical atv,s out of the box and remove the engine brake out of one of them and race them the one without the engine brake will win every time!
