Check your coolant hoses

Pulled my skids today as the machine is going to the dealer monday for a rattle in front diff. and I like to send things to the shop clean.

Noticed puddle of coolant under machine (rode yesterday) and found coolant hose behind RR tire almost off. 5/16 hoseclamp barely finger tight. The other kind of hoseclamp they use all seemed to be OK

This machine has 1600 miles on it.

Didn't loose much, but it could have been a disaster.

Re: Check your coolant hoses

Might be something of everyone to check. I noticed a while back that the coolant was low in my 2010 RZR. After looking over the machine we found the same clamp loose as you did on yours.

I cut that hose while riding and when I went to fix it the clamp was not tight at all.

Re: Check your coolant hoses

When you access this clamp, learn how to safety wire it so it cannot possible work loose again.
