OK, here's the mystery of the day. I was using the UTV the other day and the idiot light came on that said it was overheating. I immediately shut down and checked the coolant. No coolant! I refilled the overflow reservoir and the radiator and all was fine. 2 days later the light is on again. I rechecked the radiator and it was again empty? Bone dry? Now, here's the weird part, There is no coolant anywhere on the floor below the vehicle. I can't even see any on the frame. I have it up on the lift and am getting ready to start tearing into the bottom "skid plate" to see if the leak is in the hoses there. Any suggestions as to where to start? I have yet to begin and I am already baffled!

Does the UT500 need greasing? Where can I find the fittings? Thanks.
I had mentioned in a previous post that I had removed the front anti-roll bar from my 2020 Outfitter 400; I ran that way for a month or so without noticing any downside however recently I installed a 'suicide knob" (see below) to assist my Parkinson's disease affected arms in turning the beast--but after doing so i found that in the quicker, tighter turns the knob permitted the vehicle would nosedive a bit, dig in, and plow on hard surfaces--not scary, but quite noticeably.
So I put the bar back on. Then today I got about 1-1/2 miles down the main road on the nearby power lines, turned around and came home to take it off--with the bar on, at 25 to 30 MPH, the front-end of the beast jumped like rabbit at each bump in either wheel rut., for a nearly brutal and quite uncomfortable ride. the bar (20 mm solid steel) is far too robust for the weight of the vehicle. The front bar on my 3900 lb. Infinity M37 is 30 mm...
suicide knob--for you younger folks:
Pretty new to the whole UTV thing and my outfitter 550 has around 35 hours so I figured it’s time to do an oil/filter change and grease the zerks….but then was wondering if I should also drain and replace the front/rear differential fluids? I don’t see anything in the outfitter manual mentioning differentials and I can’t find any videos or instructions online if this is something I should be doing and if so at what intervals? If anyone has any videos showing where to even find the differentials on this name/model I’d be greatly appreciative.

Anyone know of an aftermarket Half Door for the Coleman UTV 400? Looking for a rigid hinged right and left door with latch... Thanks!
