    Overheating

    I have been fighting an over heating issue this year. The first ride of the year we were in quite a few hills, It seemed like every time i would have the front end elevated going up hill the sxs would start to overheat and I would have to crack the bleed screw and bleed some air out. So after the ride I elevated the front end and bleed the coolant system. Thinking my problem has gone away after riding 200 normal miles and not having a heating issue. Well this weekend me and the boy went for a quick 40 mile ride, during the ride we had to climb a fairly steep hill, after stopping at the top of the hill the sxs started to over heat again and once again had to crack the bleed screw to get back home. The rad is clean, fan is working, cooling system was right full before ride. Anyone else experience this? only overheats once the front is elevated.

    Thanks in advance.

    I wonder if it’s still an air bubble problem? I would make sure it’s on level ground and pop the radiator cap and let it run to operating temperature and see if air still bubbles out. Mayb let it idle like that for 10 mins or so.

    We had a similar problem several years ago and I ran the front of the trail up on a steep bank and let it idle while adding coolant to the radiator till all the air bubbled out.

    When I have the time i am going to hook the front end up to the crane and try bleed it again, see if it helps. I think the rad design is a big factor on why these things are so hard to bleed and will get air in the system, having both lines right at the top of the rad.

    Have you tried a new radiator cap. May be leaking/not sealing. Had to replace mine once.
