Thought I would look here for some suggestions before I go shopping. I have a 2012 XTZ, warn 4.0 multimount, roof, back vinyl drape, full windshield. Stock machine. 4S Tatou tracks were on Dec-March, only got out of the yard twice. Machine has 22 hours on it.
Rode 9 miles, open logging roads, had dinner, then rode back to camp. I can smell plastic burning. I find that part of the dump bed is dripping onto the heat shield for the muffler. It was so hot in the cab that I was hanging my head out to get some cooler air. This spring I put dynamat inside the cowl to cut down on the heat and noise. It did cut the noise, and the cowl doesn't get as hot. I have since taken the windshield and rear drape off. It's much cooler to run now....and the bugs are crunchy this time of year.
I noticed the glowing pipe last winter after about 45 minutes of playing in the yard.
The dealer told me the glowing pipe is normal (this forum did as well), so I didn't really worry about it last winter. This thing is a very fun runner.
What's next? Mud/grass catching fire and burning up on the trail?? I made the mistake of riding an Outlander 850....and liked it alot.
Any ideas about how to keep this ride from melting away??
