Rode my new teryx 40 miles yesterday. The center motor area was so hot my hip and thigh were still red 24 hrs later. Called the dealer and were told "yea, they run hot". Could this be right? I think there has to be something seriously wrong.
Hi there, first off welcome to the site, we are happy to have you!
Let me ask you, have you done any mods yet?
A lot of people are reporting that their machines are running hot, the first things I would have to ask are:
Radiator fluid at the correct level?
Did the fan ever kick on?
Did the temperature indicator light ever come on?
Is the radiator clean?
Not sure what type of riding you were doing or where you are located. Also, the machine will run warmer if jetted incorrectly.
Also, is yours an LE? If so, you can try moving the windshield up a tad to help. Finally, as the motor breaks in I have heard that it will run a little cooler, how many hours do you have on your machine?
I'm from Ky. We were climbing small hills but mostly flat terrain. It is a 750 LE with only 8 hrs. The radiator fluid is good. Temp light did not come on. The fan did come on. The radiator is clean and we have not made any mods. What should I expect from the dealer?
