teryx down and out

went for a ride last night, going down a trail and my buddy infront of me hit a decent sized tree limb like the size of your forearm and kicked it out onto the path, well it decided it wanted to go right into my radiator. didnt look at it till like a mile later fluid wasnt leaking overflow is still full, tryed to drive it the temp light comes on and the gauge cluster blinks FI, and it barely runs. not sure what happened. its not leaking or doesnt even smell of coolant. going to get a new radiator and hopefully i didnt ruin anything. worse part is i got towed home by a rzr.

If the radiator is not leaking and it didn't run hot but the FI light is on and ran like crap you might have damaged the water temp sensor which is screwing up the EFI.

This would be in theory, I have not looked to see where the water temp sensor even is on my 09.

The FI light comes on when there is something wrong with the EFI.

Water temp sensor is on the thermostat housing. Is it possible that you damaged some of the wiring? Hopefully you didn't loose the fluid before stopping. If the radiator has a hole I don't think that it will suck the fluid from the overflow tank because your are loosing the pressure on the system.

well sad to say she's down n out. Washed it and took it for a short ride tonight. No power n it smokes n smells of burnt oil. It's shot. only 234 miles and 16 hrs. Going to park it until I can afford to rebuild it. Only made one payment so far. Only had it a month. Thanks for the help though guys!
