    If we don't clean the mud out of the radiator each time we go, they can get warm.

    We ran Carolina adventure world again today. No issues! I don't it to be poor design that the cooling fan sits between the engine and the radiator.

    I would like to modify this issue if that's what it takes. It could be a faulty sensor though. Mine has thrown the HOT warning at me and I will pull over leaving the fan run. After a minute I start it up and it will pump cooler water through. The notification goes away and its food for the day.

    When I was cleaning my machine the other day, I sprayed a decreased at the radiator and cleaned it really good. I ran cool all day.

    If you have people that would ride with you it makes it all worth it!

    My next machine will be a RZR.


    The Rzr in the picture is a 800.

    I don't know yet. I haven't had to plow any ice yet, only snow...


    This is what our snow covered parking lots looked after being plowed.
