    HELP!! 04 RXP overheat and coolant everywhere!!

    Hey guys went riding this past weekend and ran into problems. The water was extremly rough!! after about an hour of riding the alarm came on and said it was overheating! i shut it off immedialty and lifted the seat off, steam came pouring out, coolant tank was empty and coolant was everywhere on the bottom of the hull inside engine compartment. I got it towed back and im getting ready to work on it tomarrow. Any ideas what went wrong or what happend? any help would be great!! thanks

    same thing just happened to my buddies 05 with 110hrs... it was a hose clamp on one of the coolant lines that had corroded... should be very simple and easy to fix... hope this puts you at ease and i hope thats the problem!

    Head gasket! It will cause the fill bottle to overflow when riding under a load. Why aren't your bailers taking it out of the hull?
