A weird smell on my xp

I have a 2012 rzr xp I have around 800 miles. For the past while when I have the when I have the motor revved I get this weird sweet smell. My buddy has the exact same rzr but there is no smell like that? Anyone have any ideas?

Anti freeze gives off at sweet smell at higher temps. I'd be looking at the radiator level.

X2 sounds like you are smelling coolant...i'd check the coolant level..and look it over next you smell it..could have a leak somewhere. Check all the coolant hoses, especially at the clamps. ect.

A weird smell on my xp

You may wanna check your level in your resivor tank. Mine was doing that, i looked in the overflow/resivor that is under the hood panel, checked it after letting it set all night and there was ZERO coolant in it, not even up to the minimum amount, so i filled it up to the max line, took about 2 cups of coolant, and rode it around for a few hours. Checked it again the next morning and had went down some. Kept checking on it but has not went down anymore, so i figure what was used was just low throughout the motor. So check your tank and fill it if needed then keep an eye on it. That cleared the smell from mine.


Wish i could be riding more :-(

Lynyrd Skynyrd: Ooooo oooo that smell.
That's what they were singing about. The heater core gave out on the bus and puked AF all over the carpet.

Re: A weird smell on my xp

The sweetest cotton candy smell came from my rzr, right before my rear diff locked up, due to excessive hemorrhaging of gear oil from a ruined seal while duning . Check all your gearboxes

And a leaking bottle of Tennessee Honey between the seats will hit the manifold and create a wonderful smell also.
