Could some post the procedure for bleeding the air from the coolant system? This was an issue with the canam 800 too.

Should all be detailed in the service manual. As close as I can remember, remove radiator cap, start quad, let idle till t-stat opens ( should see water circulating ), crack throttle a few times, top off as necessary, replace cap.

My snowmobile burps way better at an angle. Look for any constriction and make sure it flows easy in other words.

Need to figure out why fan wont turn on until its overheating
I haven't been to Rush, but my uncles and cousins have. They live in W va and that's who I ride with a lot. But there all in SxS.

If you do flush system honestly any antifreeze should be okay. I've used Prestone but recomend the Honda coolant. Be sure to check out your t-stat.

Only owning quad six months, anything is possible. Could be missing or a faulty t-stat. Also could have air in the system?

I'll check coolant, when I first got it I would add coolant and after about 10 min there wouldnt be any left in the tank, last time I added it didnt go down so I figured I was good to go. I'll flush it and use some honda coolant. Also going to add a manual switch for the fan so that wont be a problem anymore.

Rush gets alot of sxs visitors, which makes it a little harder for the hill climbs since they tear up the trail, the group I go with always takes quads and bikes, and it's a lot of fun. Plenty of mud, hills, whatever u want, rush has it!

Yeah from what I herd it isn't really sport quad friendly there. I was planing on going as a passenger in a SxS 1st to check it out. Last I herd it was $50 for a season pass? Where do you live, and is Rush the only place you ride?

Rush is more friendly towards SxSs. But theres plenty of quad trails to take. My 700 did really good(other than overheating) only got stuck in some mud on the black trails
Mainly just ride at rush, season pass is 90 bucks.
I live right out of Columbus, is there any good places to ride here in town?

Your talking Columbus Ohio right? Have you never been to Wayne or Perry? Both are state forest ATV parks. @Perry you just have to have your quads or sxs state registered. No size limits at Perry nor do you need to purchase a trail pass. Opens 1st of April closes 1st of December, and daylight restricted riding. Perry is more suited for dirt bikes and 4x4's imo. Now Wayne is a sports quads dream! You do have to have quad state registered & purchase a trail permit, last year $35 for the season. @Wayne you can ride 24/7 from middle of April till middle of December. There is a 50" width restriction. Also you can camp for free there, or go to campgrounds and pay. Both Wayne & Perry are like 60 miles from Columbus, Ohio. Perry allows you to go off trail if wanted. There are a lot of killer hill climbs there. Wayne wants you to stay on marked trails, or they can fine you.
