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
