Yet another rookie, from North Carolina

Hey everybody,

We bought a 2011 XTX 700. We have really enjoyed it and have had few problems, other than replacing right rear axle. My fault...I drove over a small branch on the trail; it broke and one of the ends lodged itself in the cv boot in a way that it wasn't easily visable without looking carefully. We continued to drive it like this on short rides for a couple of weeks, then took our machine on a rather long ride, not aware that we had no lubrication on the cv joint. Needless to say, it wasn't long before we lost that axle. What a pain! We were without our main source of entertainment for weeks while we waited for Arctic Cat to ship us a new axle, plus the time it took for a guy with little or no experience as a mechanic (me) to finally figure out how to replace it.

Anyway from that day until now, if I can't avoid things like that on the trail, I check CAREFULLY for damage!

I do have a question for anyone with advise in installing gauges in Prowlers.
Anyone know where the sending unit for the oil gauge goes? Thanks!

Welcome to the forum!!!!!!!!!!!I have a 2009 700 XTX, mine came with the factory oil cooler, I placed my oil pressure sending unit on the high pressure line going to the oil cooler. The ports under the oil filter on a 2009 were used for an oil cooler. The lower port is the high pressure side. Both ports have a screw in plug. Several members have placed the sender in the port, but the exhaust heat has melted some wires!

2009 700EFI XTX, , AC Winch, 2010 Dust Shield EPI Sport Utility Clutch Kit , Street Legal, Cage chopped 2 ", Aluminum Diamond Plate Trim, Relocated Factory Bladders with covers, 5 Pt. Harness installed, Bed Tiedown System, Scat Pro-Car Seats, Secondary Battery installed, Oil Pressure, Oil/CVT Temperature, Volt Meter & Water Temp Gauges installed with Dash Plate, Bighorns, ITP Black 212 Wheels. Tonneau cover. 750 Big Bore Kit, Web Cam, and Rocker Arms.

Either - Dick or RD

Welcome to the site glad you could join,great members,and great info.A few of us got on big gauge installing kick.I dont figure you have a oil cooler on your 2011 I might be wrong,but like fairmont79 said you can come from your port under your oil filter,I used the low one,but I was able to splice into my line going to my cooler,my sending unit and wire is along my frame rail under the seat area.feel free to ask anything.There is a lot of info in here on gauge install.

2015 A/C Sport,With a few add ons..........
