Alright well i was Racing on Sunday in a Mudfest and i manged to get it caked enough that the temp light came on, i only ran about 10 more mins takin it easy before callin it quits, The Quad still fires and runs Great but i did notice my coolent resevior had collapsed a bit, i guess from the suction pressure...anyway im sure it will pop itself back out but should i worry about anything else since it managed 2 get that hot?....the Oil and coolent still look and smell fine, and theres no ridability problems but just checkin with everyone else on this 1...thanks :thumbsup:

10 min? You're fine as long as you didn't run the hell out of it for those 10 min. If you pretty much limped it around, you're alright. :thumbsup:

its probably better that you rode it lightly for a while to get some air in the radiator and ran cooler coolant through the engine instead of killing it and letting it steam with hot coolant inside the motor.
