I have an 03 600 edgex and last weekend i noticed my temp light coming on and my engine was sputtering so i opened my hood and noticed that the clamp holding my hose from the pull cord housing broke and cut into my hose, is there a coupling i could just splice into there cause the dealer wants like 40 buck for the darn pre moulded hose. also is it bad that i drove my sled with it over heated i hope not.

Thanks for your advice guys

I'd just fix the hose. Check out Napa, I know they carry some Polaris parts like that. Should be a little cheaper, if they carry that.

Just splice it. Cut the hose at the splice, get the ID measurement from the hose and go to either a hardware store or home depot and get a brass hosebarb coupling. Should cost under 5 bucks and is easy to install. Push the coupling in both ends, hose clamps, fill coolant, bleed, done!! Trust me, this works and is the way to go. Make sure you use a barbed fitting instead of a smooth one. Smooth ones run the risk of blowing apart.

ps...should look like this.

I would do rings,,when they start to wear they "rock" in the
bore,also you get blow by(that dark color under your lower ring
on the piston)it contaminates you fresh fuel charge and you slowly
loose power over time.

it's cheap and easy to do,aslo mic your pistons too
to see if there withing spec yet,, hey you asked!!!!
