coolant problem

I just did a coolant change on my 05 sportsman 600 and filled it back with the polaris antifreeze and bled the radiator, so yesterday when i was riding i shut the atv off and i noticed coolant shooting out of the vent hole in the res.i have also been noticing that the fan is mostly always on while riding. But there is No HOT alert on the speedo. Any help would be good . Thanks

You probably need to clean the radiator fins completely and/or the radiator cap is probably bad. I had the same symptoms and a new cap fixed fixed it.
