    Exhaust hose melting SLT750

    I have a Polaris SLT750 (blue engine) and my exhaust hose keeps melting, can I remove the thermostat assembly. How do I remove it?

    It has nothing to do with the thermostat. There is a fitting at the top of the pipe with a hose on it. Remove that fitting and make sure its not plugged up. There is a small orifice in it that allows water to flow into the pipe for cooling. If that is blocked, it will overheat the exhaust and melt the hoses.

    Make sure all screens and orifices are clean parts 9, 11, 12 above.....

    Diagram also identifies the thermostat to answer your first question, although as Bryan said, not the issue here.......

    By the way, can I replace the short hose with a regular automotive radiator hose?

    Also make sure the screen that is in the pump nozzle is not partially clogged. You can use automotive hose, but make sure its the heavy duty thicker variety.

    Can you post a pic of the exhaust pipe?

    If it's aftermarket, it may be a dry pipe.

    On the jet pump, where the siphon hose(s) connect, but on the inside of the pump in the reducer nozzle...
