2006 polaris sportsman 450 "engine hot"


BKW78

Recommended Posts

The "engine hot" warning keeps flashing even when the bike is off for several hours. i unplugged the temp sensor and had it tested. It appears to be fine. With this warning flashing the fan wants to run all the time. I have not been able to locate a wiring diagram on the net, is there a relay that could be stuck?

if your fan is running all the time then there is nothing wrong with yourwiring. back wash your rad by pulling out the fan. if than is good then check your brakes. if you have a caliper dragging then you can overheat the engine. you can also do a coolant flush. if your fuel mixture is a little lean it will cause it to overheat. if all of these are ok then i would buy a manual. if your plug gap is to wide it will do it as well. if you put to hot of plug in it will do it as well.

Appearing to be fine and being fine are two different things, electrical components may be bad even if they test ok. How long does the machine run before you get the warning light? If it comes on immediately, I would say the either the sensor is malfunctioning or you may have a short in the wiring. If the light doesn't come on until the machine has been running for a while, then you may just be running hot. Make sure you have plenty of coolant and clean oil. How does it run, do you have any performance problems?

I haven't rode the bike for 3 days. When I turned the key on the "HOT" warning starts flashing the oil was changed and the coolant level is correct. The bike runs fine even with the light flashing, the fan just runs all the time even with the key off

      I am in the process of puting it back together after replacing the DPS gearbox.
      The manual I have states that it will need to be flashed by a dealer. Is this still true?
      Also , I have a mystery bolt That I cannot remember where it goes. M6x 70 or so.  Hex head with a flat washer.I will try to attach a pic.
      Pic is no go for now....Cox issue I will try again later
      TIA

      I have been rebuilding some ATVs in my spare time and teaching myself along with the help from the internet how an engine works and getting bikes running again is quite enjoyable. I even built an arctic cat 300 4x4 from two parts bikes the had seized motors and missing parts. It was pretty enjoyable. 
       
      So I am now working on a sazuki quadrunner 300 1992 which had a whole list of issues when I got it. I have fixed almost everything I need to in order to get this bike running. But something is going on inside the head or crankcase. 
      I had to replace the timing chain because it was very stretched due to the previous owner.
       
      What the issue was, the timing chain was off the sprocket inside the engine due to it being stretched it slipped off. So the previous owner rebuilt the top end thinking it would fix it which it may have temporarily, but when doing so they welded an extra inch onto the tensioner to hold the chain tight. Which as you can imagine caused a dozen other issues.
      So that stretched the chain to the point where I could remove the cam with the tensioner in.
      It beat the sliders all to hell. Destroyed the cylinder housing and obviously ruined the tensioner. 
      I didn't realise all of this until after I rebuilt the engine.  I noticed wear where the timing chain runs through the cylinder. I found the cam had no retaining chair, or clip whatever you want to call it so the cam was beat to sh** also. It had almost an inch of play side to side.
      So I pulled the head off of my parts bike and fixed all of it. Then put it together and went to pull it over and found it was not on the sprocket (this is when I realised that all that damage and the welded tensioner was because the timing chain had been off the sprocket) 
      So I pulled the stator cover off and pulled the flywheel (which I should add to get at the stator cover I have to remove the rear tire and a arm as well as remove the bolt through the front of the engine. And the exhaust system has to be removed to pull the cylinder as the exhaust guard is bolted to the side of the timing chain tensioner. Stupid setup. Glad the king quad doesn't have that. 
      So I got everything apart and the flywheel off. New timing chain (nice and tight now) put the head back together and flywheel but it is quite hard to turn the engine over. I can but with difficulty. When the valve cover was off it seemed to spin much more freely. Before I tear everything back apart and start again any ideas on what it is?
