I just bought a '09 Brute 750i, couldn't be happier!

I got two friends whom I ride with (also on Brutes) and they hold up great.

Everyone has their own opinion on quads, research 'em and find out what fits you best.

Though some users on this site seem to have great luck with 'em, I sure didn't.

If your buying used I would buy the one that sounds good running and drives ok and looks in the best shape. Any make can cost you big when it breaks!!!

I like my brute so far!!! My brother has a cat and beats it up pretty good and it still runs.... Good luck

The biggest thing about BF 750 is . its their top bike . its much cheaper than other comparable brands and it will out perform all the other 700ish cc bikes power wise.


out of those 3 id say the BF 750 is the best of the 3.

you can prob get it nice and cheap too.

my reply was based on
1. hes looking at used
2. he listed 3 machines in the 700cc ish area.

3. can-ams are more expensive. --- and i was to go can-am it would be a xmr so my opinion would be mute.

+1, only decision would be which one Renegade or outy xxc. I've owned a brute force... not even close.

Pulled out my Multi metre and theres a electrical drain with the key off !!! anyone know the solution ..yes I know disconnect the battery or ECU after use !! or pull the fuse ..but anyone have first hand experience fixing this issue !! man shoulda listened to my gut and bought the Brute !!!! arrrrrrrrr
