    Old issue but I am confused

    Just did not want to open a new thread in order to ask a similar question but I found mixed opinions ... After an hour of ride my coolant dropped from max to min. It was my first ride since I had it changed. I will top it once more just to make sure its not air bubbles..(which I hope so...) there was no coolant in hull.... I ve read that it might be a head gasket issue. Which is the best way to check it? Doing a compression test, is sufficient in verifying or not, a blown gasket? The oil is not milky but was checked before riding. Also the thermostat was changed...where to start? Thanks guys..

    I had a similar issue with my xpx...the coolant was leaking out the ride plate. there was pool that would collect under the pump by the pump shoe that was hard to notice. My coolant reservoir would just be empty or low. I then noticed that there was some coolant pooling. here is what mine looked like. http://www.greenhulk.net/forums/show...=you+guys+rock. if that's the issue you can follow the instructions in this thread too, they worked for me perfectly.

    It is just air locks in the system. It will happen every time after refilling the cooling system.

    It's very normal to have to refill it after you service the cooling system.
    If it continues to be low then you have an issue some where.


    Rip on....

    I also had a leak in my rideplate coming from 2-3 of the plate's screws. The sealant gets tired and wears loose if not enough is applied by manufacturer. If you have this leak, you'll see it collect while sitting parked at the house.
