my wife & i took the gk-13 out for a ride started overheating made it back to the trailer a wire came off the thermostat fixed. went riding again found a water leak from the radiator fixed again went ahead and put in a new thermostat and housing rode again no problems. got to thinking about others that had overheating problems. the stock radiator is about 6 3/4 x13 seemed small to me went on to ebay
found a 2006 polaris outlaw 500 radiator 9 x 17 almost double the size
i got for $22.99 del hoses interchange size wise reused the gk-13 fans
the first picture in on the outside of the frame
the 2nd is on the inside of the frame rails
i have not put the radiator grill on yet
it is all even just a low left rear tire

I went with 10" push-pull fans on the stock radiator and never see overheating when they run.

Nice work John. The nevada heat gets to these machines. I have plans to change mine out as well. Will the stock grill still fit on there?
