Does anyone out there have any experience with overheating
of the engine. I purchased this machine last fall and it
seems to always overheat. I took it in and they drained
all the fluid from the radiator etc. and refilled it.
They said it had been filled wrong.(seems bizarre to me)
It didnt help. I had another guy tell me the propeller
on his machine was the problem. I am not really up on how
these are made. I have always had 4 wheelers without
radiators for this reason. One less thing to go wrong.
Any help would be appreciated. (I have 6 miles on it)

Have you checked the temperature? You could have a faulty sending unit. Is the unit missing any antifreeze? A blown head gasket would cause overheating and not show as a leak.

Many engines have tight chanels in the block and head. It is difficult to fill the engines correctly and they need to be power filled. I might suspect a chanel has not been drilled properly if it has always stayed hot.

Like Art suggests check the machine with another temperature gauge. A temperature gauge is just a thermal couple. It can go, will go and can be incorrect from day one. Years ago I would weld my own thermocouples for experiments. I can not tell you how many were bad or went bad. You are welding two dissimilar metals so it is the nature of the beast. Like brasing steel.

Saw this when buying some hub extenders. There must be some issue here if aftermarket guys are developing kits...
