I'm looking at upgrading my ATV. I use my ATV mosely for hunting. Pulling disc harrow,log animal.

I'm looking to upgrade to a bigbore because i want a pit track on the bike for winter. Coyote hunting/ice fiching.

I live in canada and so far my eye are on the bruteforce because I read that the vtwin is great.

I found a bunch of things about what to look for in terme of problem on the brute and so far it look like a good bike.

My question: how mutch kilometer are these motor good for?

I see a lot of them use for sale that have been modified or rebuilt... I had my share of modification and i dont want a have to modified or rebuilt my bike as a routine.

Should i be worry about that?

The usual story I owned yamaha and honda in the past and i worry to switch to other brand. But i was told multiple time by different people that kawa are good and reliable.

Should i worry about buying a use bike?
Anything special to look for?

Thanks Evryone

Previous owners are the main factor. I know people that have more then 22,000 miles on their factory V-Twins and people that sunk them in mud/water that destroyed them within 1,000 miles. I would look for one that was NEVER modified for use in mud/water, only trail-rode, low miles/KM, well maintained with records.

@NMKAWIERIDER Ok it's what I had in mind. The usual key point for use vehicle. Some how a lot of the one I see for sale all have snorkel or Rad relocated or Both mod done. lot's of them are on 27" wheel.

I want a use mine for hunting so I need the front rack. I don't mind the big wheel science it will have EPS. However big wheel is normally harder on Differential,bolt join and all the directial part's.

I just realized I created 2 post... in different section... I think we should close this one. My bad I was on my cell phone.

Another thing to be aware of is the cleanliness and state of the owners property. He probably treats his brute like he treats his garage or street car/truck: is it clean and organized? I am always inspecting more than the sale item but it’s surroundings as well...
