Question Engine Cover Getting Hot On Prowler 1000 XTZ

Any suggestions why the engine cover is getting very hot and melting the plastic behind seats under tilt bed, also melted ebrake cable? Any repair available to keep cool?

You could try some insulation and heat barrier. The sticky back stuff doesn't stay on very good. Get some of the thicker stuff and use the spray can adhesive to bond it. Seems to cut down the heat a bunch. There are many different brands and you can find it at local high performance auto shops as well as Jegs, Summit and many others. Good luck.

3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

There is a large grill under the front that lets air into the engine compartment, it directs air under the cup holders into the engine compartment, I would check to see if it is blocked. I saw one at the Orange county sand show that had blocked it off for a bigger cup holder so I know that one has a heating problem. I insulated the engine cover and wrapped the exhaust to help the noise. The only time the engine cover should get hot is after a run and you are stopped and there is no air moving thru the engine compartment.

hot is a relative term ... what do you mean by hot

on a warm mid 80's to 90 day mine gets hot enough that I need a mat on the engine cover to insulate a bit and also in the bed so my dogs feet don't get so hot he can't stand very still

WELCOME!!!! that blocked vent may be the culprit but if not, start making your own, or possibly get some heat shielded foam like they put under fenders of dirt bikes right around the exhaust.
