2003 sportsman 600 antifreeze problem

Hello to all , I am a first time to this site . I have a 2003 sportsman 600 4x4 with 200 hours on it ,I have noticed that i have to keep topping off the antifreeze reservoir. There is no sign off white smoke from the exhaust and no over heating issues.I am going to change the oil this weekend ,never had a problem until recently. If any one has had the same problem or sugestion would be helpful thanks to all

look for any stains from seepage on the block, it may be time for a waterpump seal

It would be a good idea if your going to replace the water pump seal to just go ahead and get a new water pump impeller too. Both water pump seal and impeller are around 36 bucks and are really easy to replace. Im doing it to mine right now just a screw clamp for the hose and some bolts and one nylon threaded nutt & washer holding the impeller on.

thanks for the tip , I was wondering to replace the waterpump seal ,can you remove the pressed in seal without taking the flywheel and seperating the plate that houses this seal

I had a missing antifreeze problem too. Right above the left axle a cooling line had been worn through by I guess you could call it a frame support bracket. I never noticed it leaking until it really started leaking! I spliced in a section of pipe where it came into contact with the frame.

radiator hose sportsman 600 2003

Does anyone know where to get hose and the size id of lower and upper hoses. Bracket wore thru places on hoses and the dealer is outrages on prices for hoses. My street car is cheaper to mantain than the quad

Yeah it kinda sucks that one end of the hose is a different size than the other. I wound up using a plastic(nylon?) hose repair pipe. Sounds good don't it. I don't know what it was called it's s barbed tube that slipped into the hose after i cut it. I got it at a parts store and I think it actually is to repair hoses. I hope that helps some.:

I did this repair about a year ago with no problems. But I just plow my driveway, and sweep grass clippings with this machine, if I were going to go out in the boonnies with it, I'd bite the bullet and spring for a new hose.
