Coolant Recovery Tank

Still wonder why AC did not include a coolant recovery tank on all of their models? I found one on ebay ( Arctic Cat 650 V2 4x4 Engine Radiator Overflow Tank #19 2005 | eBay ) that I used on my 700XTX. I keep finding a wet spot under my Prowler after parking it overnight. Replaced the cap, lowered the coolant level but no change. I use the recovery tank with great success! Park it now after a hard ride, and the tank is 3/4 full, check after it has cooled off and the tank is nearly empty! Any coolant recover tank that fits would work, I just used the AC one because of the mounting bracket!

Does that just hook on the radiator?

Mounts on the frame downtube next to the radiator. I found one with a bracket and bolted it on.

Last time we were riding I was with another driver and Denise was driving the Prowler, I watched it puke several times. Checked it out and it wasn't over heating. Good idea! I'll look for one.

PSN had several, but any recovery tank would work as long as it feeds from the bottom. I found that mine would continue to push coolant until it found a happy level in the radiator! I like the added insurance on the trail that I always have coolant to pour back in if necessary! Worse case is fill it with vodka!

Vodka... The ultimate anti freeze! I found one on Ebay for $20.00, needless to say, the Buy it now button worked flawlessly! AGAIN........

Went for about a 50 mile ride yesterday and noticed that coolant puked out at some time again. The low coolant level light came on in the dash, but she never overheated and the cooling fan ran normally. I had a loose clamp on the lower coolant fitting, on the heaters "T" and think it might have been leaking under pressure. I hope that's the culprit, anyway. I gave that clamp 4 turns, filled the system and ran it. Bled out all the air and it seems fine. Holding pressure and fan is still kicking on after the T stat opens. Let it run for 2 hours at fast idle and it never leaked or overheated. My coolant tank will be here Thursday. Can't wait to get it on and contain the coolant. Great idea, RD!!!

Just trying to spend more of your money! LOL Loose hose clamps will do it every time! I made it about 15 miles before I blew the lower hose off my radiator! Forgot to tighten the clamp after putting new hoses on mine! Pat was impressed! LOL On another note, AC started to install them on the 2015 and up 700 models!

Have you checked the radiator cap pressure rating? Last year I was having the same issue it kept puking a little coolant so I thought my cap might be getting weak. After doing some checking it seems Arctic Cat changed the part number, the original cap was 13 lbs and the new ones are 16 lbs. I ended up buying this one on ebay High Pressure Radiator Cap 1.6 Arctic Cat 500 550 650 700 1000 prowler wildcat | eBay but might go back to the lower psi, I don't want to over pressure the system.

Here's link to what looks like the updated cap.
