I really think a temp. gauge would be a good thing to install on my SP440 '05.
Right now I have no idea at all about engine temp. when trail riding......

Have any one have tied to install that on the SP's ?.

I read on a post last year about overheating, to pull the overflow hose out and let it hang to the inside where you can glance down at it. sounds kinda crude but it seems to work. if antifreeze is coming out your running too hot. I ran this way last year and never had any over heating problems. Although I always ran in loose snow conditions.

Im thinken about getting one but seriously will i even need it, its not like i ride like a grampa on a jag 340, snow is always going to be thrown up there exspecailly when pounding trails and side hill sick gaps im still debating about the cooler............................. only reason is becaue my friend has a 95 xcr 600 and the coolers are under the floor boards and when we ride on hard packed snow, no snow is getting kicked up to the exchangers under the foot rests. the cooler infront of the cog is whats keeping the sled cool... as long as you ride responsibly you will be able to feel if your sled is loosing power (getting hot) and when it does just dock off into the powder.
