Overheating

Recommended Posts

My 2009 1100 Sand Viper is overheating and I can see and hear air coming out of the head after a ride.

Anyone know of a trick to get the all of the air out quickly?

How HOT? What do you mean you can hear it? Bubbles moving in the coolant or air exiting thu the head gasket? Have you taken/check with your dealer? Is your coolant level dropping requiring to be topped off? Any moisture coming from the exhaust? Did you get the engine really hot? This is the same engine as in the Trooper and this is not normal, IMHO. No other persons have report this problem. If you haven't taken it back to your dealer, do so quickly. I would guess a blown head gasket. Run a compression test & a pressure test on the cooling system!

The head gasket is fine.

I pulled out the thermostat

If I am on it hard for a few miles the red overtemp light comes on and the gauge needle is all the way to the right.

It will cool down pretty quick if I stop and keep the engine running

It never overflows in to the expansion tank

16psi cap

If I pull up the red tab on the cap it will flow in to the expansion tank and I can see air bubbles

I can hear air coming through the hose going to the radiator from the head.

the coolant level does go down slightly when the air comes out.

I figure all of the air will work its way out sooner or later but I was wondering if there is a quicker way.

Go for a small run or medium rev the engine for 30 seconds to warm the engine up a bit and then take the radiator cap off. Leave it to idle and heat up more so the thermostat opens up. If the coolant level drops your in business just keep on topping up at the radiator not the overflow bottle. When the level stops dropping put the cap on and go for a decent blast for say 10 minutes or so turn off & leave to cool then check again and top up if needed. If the coolant level fails to drop at all back at stage one then this is not going to work. I've only done this before on a car as per my mechanics advice & it worked fine. Good luck.

Cheers Mike.

Thats what I have been doing

I was just wondering if there is a faster way

I am going out to put heat wrap on the header right now and that should help.

After it warms up and you take the cap off, run your engine up to 1000-1500 RPM and top it off up at that RPM. When it doesn't need anymore put the cap back on and then let it idle. Check to see if any runs into Tank.

Jack up the rear of your machine as high as you can. This will place your radiator at the highest point. Do what the others have suggested, may help! I had to do this with one of my past race cars to get all the air out. I would still let the dealer know about your problem. You could also call Joyner in AZ.

There is pond dam near my house that is pretty steep

I will try letting it sit on the side of that for awhile over the weekend.

I guess I could just try doing a long ride in the hills

that would the fun way

      This looks to be a pretty common topic and I've had issues with mine overheating since I got it back around the end of 2019. Started running hot again, thermostat was not opening and they sent me a new one. Installed that, burped the system for air all to no avail. Next in line is the water pump to replace, they sent me a water pump and when I got the old one off it was not turning freely to say the least so I'm thinking that could have been my problem. My issue now is getting the slot in the water pump shaft to line up with the tab inside the engine of the machine. Any tricks to doing this? Thanks in advance

      Hello,
      I have a 2018 Dominator LT 1000 and I am wanting to stiffen up the ride.  What is the best way to accomplish this, tighten the recoil spring up or add air to the shock.  I can't find any information on the procedure.  Also, since im asking questions........my top end rpms doesnt seem to be where it should be.  Max RPM is 6100 and usually drops down to 5800 maxed out.  Im just wondering if everyone else has the same experience.
      Thanks,
