840 Operating Temp

I am just curious what other 840 owners are running as their operating temp. Just post them up

Uhhhmm, I do not know...at what temps do the red idiot light come on?

Mine hasn't come on yet.
Hope to install my gauges in a couple weeks.

I installed a racepak dash for my race teryx, I have 840 bbk with cams, 39fcr's etc. My race rig weighs 1600lbs. I can overheat it if I am not careful but normal operating temp is 200-210 degrees, stock radiator. Oil temperatures runs at about 240-260 degrees depending on load. Oil pressure runs from 20 at idle to 75 at WOT when water is at temperature.

Do you run it in the sand or are you strictly track racing? Are you running with an external oil cooler? I have heard this may reduce the operating temp by as much as 30 degrees. This summer I want the 840 but I am concerned with overheating in the desert riding.

We keep seeing these high temps on the Teryx. So we became a distributor for PWR radiators........ We all know the Teryx runs VERY HOT even stock. Installation of his PWR radiator will lower engine temps dramatically.The stock radiator is a single pass radiator that is 30mm thick. This PWR radiator is a dual pass radiator that is 42mm thick and it will also hold almost 500cc more fluid then the stock radiator. This radiator is a direct bolt in replacement for the OEM radiator. This kit will come complete with A new oversized radiator, new high flowing fan and fan shroud. We will also have a complete PWR oil cooler kit in about 4 weeks.

I clicked on your link and no information was available for this kit on your site. What is the discounted cost for the complete kit?

Did a lot of research on this cooling thing in the Teryx. Here is what is set up stock, You can actually find it in the manual. Thermostat opens at 185deg, fan switch is set for 203-208deg, warning light comes on at 232deg, give or take a few degrees on all of them. I am completely surprized that the stock radiator can keep up as long as it can. Like I said earlier I run a 1600lb race car with all the BBK and go fast stuff you can buy. I ran at dumont really hard on the sand and it took about 25-30 minutes before it couldn't keep up, it tried for a long time, never over heated.

Also I found out that idleing these things for extended periods of time is no good either, the water pump is so small that it cannot push water up hill very easily, I noticed this with my Racepak dash and where I placed my probe. Any big engine mods shut it off each time you stop.

Finally I am keeping the stock radiator, I bought a bigger SPAL fan and made a new shround and have had zero problems with cooling, the stock wimpy 8" fan that draws 5 amps is garbage.

Cheers
