I had the carb rebuilt on 300 brute by dealer. I was quoted 2-300$ but when I dropped it off it was $450. We TALKED and it was done for $270. Now the gas gauge doesn’t work and m/kph button doesn’t work and i shut it down fter a short run because of a clear clicking noise. I noticed that it appears the right footboard looks as if it has been removed ( screws miissing). Any reason to remove footboard for carb rebuild??

A complete brand new carb is 417.00...which is way to much for a 90-dollar carb IMO. A kit which is just a needle valve and a few seals,O-rings and a gasket or two is usually under 20 bucks so..along with all the other issues I would say this was a massive Cluster-F'k. Take it and your list of issues back to him and report it to Kawasaki.

It was an expensive cluster. Any idea why they removed the foot board. Manual suggest removal for gear drive fluid change. Does it need to be removed for carb rebuild?

I replaced my 300 carb with an aftermarket carb ( which works fine) and never took off any foot boards. I think you need to have another “talk” with that dealer, and have them repair other items that mysteriously stopped working after being serviced. All at no charge to you. When you do get it back, check it before you leave the dealer to be sure everything is working as it should. Good luck.

Now my brakes are engaging and not releasing. I have to let them cool and back up to get them to release. Going to talk to dealer tomorrow but sure don’t want to bring machine back to them. Noticed the problem after driving a few minutes and when I let off the gas but machine would not coast and then it was increasingly hard to move machine forward. Thumbed the park brake back and for a few times to make sure it wasn’t hung up. No charge. So I put it in reverse and dove a while then forward and everything was fine until I hit brakes again. Going to utube and do adjustments
