Welcome to the forum! There are alot of great people on here with alot of knowledge who are always willing to help! Just curious.. does your machine have a lift kit on it? I know sometime that can put unnecessary strain on the the axle at the differential. I think I also heared that they original replacement axles were a little to short but not sure. On the overheating some of these xtz guys I'm sure will chime in. But based on what I've read before some of the issues were around air in cooling system, faulty thermostat, fan not running when it should. I know some guys have ran engine-ice coolant to remedy this problem. Just my opinion I'm not sure I would put I higher PSI cap on. Because if it's overheating and building pressure that pressure is always going to come out the weekest point. With a higher PSI cap you will just be driving the pressure somewhere else. I would rather the weak spot be the cap than a hose. If you cap blows off you can still limp home by adding water, if your hose blows wide open your stranded if you don't have the parts to fix it. But just my opinion.. again welcome to the forum.
P.S. If this becomes a constant issue you may want to consider installing a fan-override switch so you can force the fan on and keep you cool.
