Exclamation Antifreeze loss

I have over 1000 miles and 75 hrs on my Teryx and I lost about a half gallon or so. It seems to be at the bottom of the engine. I have not looked in engine compartment yet but this unit is still under warrenty. Any one had problems with coolant loss?

I had a simular problem with only 35 hours on mine it turned out to be the hose on the front side of the water pump near the gear shifter. it was rubbing the bracket that the shifter bolts to and got a small hole in it.

I have lost some in mine, but that was due to the fact that my radiator fan switch died while I was riding and I overheated and it blew some out of vent line. I hard wired my fan to a toggle switch and switch it on when I crank it up.

I just did my 20 hr service and I had a small coolant leak due to the clamp near the oil filter being a bit loose.

The clamp near the oil filter was loose on mine as well. It looked like it had never been tightend from the factory. Had a steady drip coming from the connection.

I had a hose leaking under my drivers seat. Looks like the hose was to short from factory and the clamp was not very tight.
