Ranger 700Xp is too hot to drive. Any suggestions? Help!

Recommended Posts

This is my first UTV, and it is getting too hot to drive. It is a Polaris Ranger 700XP and doesn't take long before it gets hot. I wore sandals while driving it the other day and my foot was extremely hot and uncomfortable. Feels like the motor isn't getting cooled off. Any suggestions... I need help so I can enjoy my toy.

That's a liquid cooled motor. Is there a temperature gauge or light on that? Liquid cooled motors usually run a thermostat. Is this machine new? What year? Under warranty?

Sounds like a thermostat to me.

Here is the way to test it. Remove it from your quad and drop it in a pan of boiling water. It should open instantly.

It is a 2009 Polaris Ranger 700 XP, and still under warranty. It is has around 56 hours on it. It has always put out a lot of heat. It feels like the fan kicks in and blows all the heat on your feet. I have not got to enjoy this machine, because it this. One relply said to put the thermostat in boiling water to open it up, I hope that will help. Thanks for your input.

Have you driven it in dusty, muddy or deep water (deep as the tires are high)? Try putting a small throw rug where your feet go see if that helps.Heat rises floor board catches all the heat. In there quest to make the engine quieter, they made an engine compartment that hold more heat.

      Charging issue?
      I have a 2017 Polaris Sportsman 570 EFI. Yesterday, I start the machine and it says low power (10.6-10.8). This machine is on its second battery. This is a new AGM battery with 50cca more than stock.
      Should I look at the regulator or stator?
      Thanks!!!

      Got a 04 Sportsman 500 that wasnt running- owner said it needed a stater and a new battery.  It ran rough (been sitting out in the weather for a while).  A friend and I started by adding a new battery and it would start barely with the choke and his hand over the air-filter.  I decided to install the new battery in the holder on the side.  we had it on the rack because the old on was still in the bike.  I tried to be nifty by turning the battery to put the terminals in an easier spot to get to, but forgot to reverse the cables too.  In a sentence, I reversed the positive and negative on the battery like a dummy.  When we discovered my mistake and corrected it, we turned on the bike, but the display did not light up and the key did not turn on the starter.  jumping the solenoid worked the starter, so we thought the solenoid just burned up when I reversed the pos and neg...  new solenoid and no difference.  what have I burned up?  Also, the shifter does not seem to do anything in the trans.  it slides back and forth like its stripped in the trans.  any help would be appreciated!!
      I think the biggest issue right now is the electrical.

      New to ATVing here and just got a '11 Grizz with the belt drive transmission and I've been suggested to take along an extra CVT belt along in remote rides just in case. I'm somewhat knowledgeable about where to get quality parts for cars but not so much for ATVs. Who makes the best CVT belt for my bike? Also, who makes just ok belts and who should I stay away from?
      Also, I'm looking at getting a snatch block for a synthetic rope winch and wondered if the type rope determines what type of block you should get...or are all snatch blocks the same and I'm just thinking about this one too much?
      Thanks
