2013 Beartcat XT

I just bought one... but during the salesman pitch I forgot to ask some basic questions... and my manuals on order... How do I open the hood of the sled to access the plugs. I figured out how to open a small portion of the hood, but it's still difficult to reach the plugs. I know the sides of the hood come off, but the whole hood won't just lift up like on older sleds? It seems the headlights are right overtop the plugs...

Thanks

On my 09 xt There are two hex head bolts just under the handle bars, remove them then lift on the hood assembly, unplug cable then remove. this will access top of engine.

Out of curiosity, I've looked at 3 utility sleds, from the following brands: Artic Cat, Polaris and Skidoo. Losts of there models are fan cooled... I'm curious why they didn't go liquid cooled since these utility sleds are made to be workhorses, with fan cooled, aren't they more proned to overheat when hauling big loads?

Of course my final choice with the bearcat

Because at slow speeds the track can not fling enough snow onto exchangers to cool the engine.
