250 is in line for new, if that will fix your problem. what was it doing when it went out, sounds like a pretty hefty shop rate to me,but then agian what do i know. good luck

Yep that is a decent price for a new actuator. That labor charge seems a little outrageous though. You might be able to find someone parting one out and get one alot cheaper, they are not hard to install.. Good luck with it...

was the 200.00 for troubleshooting only or to also install the new one. i think i would get it back an try to find out whats wrong with it, there are a few write ups in here about cleaning an stuff. also i have several that i have gutted out to make manual engagement out of them, if you need parts to replace

Buy a kawasaki repair manual. With that, ANYONE can work on their brute. Step by step stuff and wiring diagrams. As long as you have a manual and a volt meter, you can do anything to yer quad. That labor rate is really high. Unless they spent hrs trying to diagnose it and didnt find anything.

I agree with BleednGreen68...I bought the repair manual as soon as I could find it. It's invaluable!! I can also help you with a volt meter, multimeter or test lamp if needed.
