Hey group. Well my good ride was followed by a not so good ride this past weekend. Rode about 10 miles and the bike was running hot. Stopped, had lunch and continued on. When I got back the bike was through a code and overheating along with puking radiator fluid.
Tonight I got a second to look at it and first put a little rad fluid in. Started it up and got up to about 150 or so and the radiator had fluid coming out of the overflow. 175 and it was spitting it out pretty good. BTW, I did hose down the radiator pretty good to get it as clean as possible.
Do you think the rad cap could be bad? Also, have any of you added a coolant overflow? Finally, what temp is the fan supposed to come on? Mine seems to be about 187.
I have the 2009 700 XTX, I added a coolant recovery tank off of a XTZ model. I think later model Prowlers started to include them. Not sure of the year. I bought mine off ebay for less than 10 dollars. 187 for the fan sounds about right. I see a 20+ degree drop during a fan cycle.
