Hello everyone,

I finally got out on my new used sled today. I have a couple of questions. As I did not get an owners manual or anything with it.

1. What kind of Coolant does it take? (Will the same coolant for my 4 stroke Polaris ATV work or should I use automotive coolant?)

2. What would cause the Exhaust to get glowing red hot?

Thanks in advance

AHHHH!!! I think its a little hot!! As far as the coolant goes regular antifreeze is what I use in my 2002 800 XC SP EDGE.
She is running hot, my be need to be blead (coolant). Bring it to the dealer or a good shop!!!

When the pipe gets that hot, it is an indication of the exaugst gas temp, not the coolant and that is way to hot. We are talking melting your aluminum engine. Off the top of my head you may be running to lean. Talk to a dealer sums it up, i could go on but a good phone call may solve alot
