Hi Guys,

I have a 2009 Summit anniversary edition and I'm having an issue with a coolant/anti-freeze leak. The problem is it doesn't happen when the sled is running. It happens after I get home after a good ride and she cools down...I thought initially it was a hose clamp slack but that isn't the trouble. Has this happened to anyone before? Please let me know!! Thanks!!

Yep, common problem. You need to remove all the crappy clamps and replace them with quality screw type clamps...and not the harbor freight box-o-clamps. Leave the small ones on the bottle, you'll just end up breaking the nipple off the bottle (don't ask my how i know :) ). You will have to pull the air box and carbs to get to some of the clamps. Some are a challenge requiring you to remove the exhaust but it's a good time to do some cleanup ad general maintenance as well, like checking your Y pipe bolts and stuff :)

these sleds build up pressure and push coolant out. That leads me to my second recommendation and thats replace the cap as it's probably time for a new one anyway.

On my sled, i can pull the cap off in the morning and have pressure still built up in the system. Some have stated that ski-doo runs the wrong type of cap on these and they allow a little air in the system. I just burp them in the morning.
