Ok correct me if I'm wrong but the crankshaft in a vtwin runs perpendicular to the frame. Which means there wouldn't be "front" rod bearing. They are side by side, but yes one goes for the front cylinder and one for the rear cylinder. So if you could starve your front cylinder, but it would cause front cylinder damage and scarring... but doesn't it have an oil circulation system of some sort to prevent that?? And to take a rod bearing the oil has to be either really hot, or of course not enough of it. So i don't really see how wheelies will take out rod bearings unless your really low on oil. I've never had a problem in 2700 miles with wheelies on my brute.. i always did run it close to full so i didn't have to worry about running it low. Brutes are definitely awesome for the price and accepts one of the widest ranges of accessories and aftermarket parts.

Have you ever been inside the engine on a Brute? I have. The way the bottom end is design when the bike is sitting flat level on the ground the rear half of the bottom end already holds a lot more oil than the front half of the bottom end. So imagine what happens when you ride wheelie and pick that front end up?

Like I said before I'm not trying to knock a Brute, they're definitely a good bang for their buck. Just stating facts. If your buying used tho no matter what bike you get check it out very careful from top to bottom, front to back and run a fine tooth comb through. Make sure your not getting someone else's headache..

you can run the catch can and the drain to the front valve cover and that will help with any no oil issue when riding on the rear tires,I have never had crank issues on a stock brute or stoke bore built brute,I know alot have but I dont know what other do with there bikes.

I'd so recommend the efi brutes over the carbureted ones. There really is no comparison between the two. Get one with low miles and is stock. That's what I'd look for.

Look for low miles and low hours, make sure its clean, check the engine oil, check diff oils as well and I would recommend also checking in the airbox just to see if it ever had oil puked in the airbox from riding wheelies and they never cleaned it out , this will be another good sign as to how hard the bike has or hasn't been rode.

Idk man that is a carb'd bike, it looks pretty weathered like its been left sitting out, the engine looks mud stained, and 350 hours is a lot ! Personally I would but use your better judgement

If I had a budget of $5500 I wouldn't even consider the 650. I'd go with the 750 all the way. They don't put fuel injection on any of the 650's for some reason. Me personally, I've had 6 years of nothing but great luck out of my Brute Force. I don't care to get on it pretty hard but I don't abuse it. I still have the factory belt on it. The first 1200 miles it had 27 inch Vampires. The past 800 miles it had 29.5 Outlaws on it.  I ride wheelies on it a lot too but usually not for more than 30 or 40 feet.
 
However, if I were in your shoes I would try to find an Outlander 800r. You might have to go up to a $6000 budget but I believe you'll have a more reliable, more powerful, better, bike in the long run.
