I have heard of them getting hot during engine break in period. my dealer told me to stop and kick snow on the heat exchanger several times.

Only one time did my temp light come on. And it is due to lack of snow on the roads. hard pack ice is a no no for these sleds. dip back into the fluff and should be a go

Don't know about the overheating, but the fuel gauge SUCKS!!! Mine will say it is empty, and I still have 2.5 gallons in it! Maybe even 3 gallons. The gauge sucks! Not even close to being accurate.

Have a 600X. Overheating not a problem, but fuel gauge sucks a big one! Says I,m empty and puts in $7.00 in gas......................... If I had to do it all over would I buy something different? NOT IN A MILLION YEARS! Love this sled. Makes a good rider out of an average one.

I have a 2002 800 MXZ and it overheated on the ice many times last weekend (while my buddies 583 ran all day without a problem). Is this a "big bore" problem??

Salty is correct hard pack ice is not friendly with the rev, this sled is for trails, ride the trails hard all day and heatis a non issue
