try bleeding the air out of it from the bleeder on the head. It probably has air in the system since you had no other problems before. Check other threads cause theres a lot about this problem on here.

Yeah i agree^^ i dont think it would be anything major since it only started after changing fluids. i mean the headgasket isnt that bad of a job sounds worse then it is but i highly doubt thats you problem mudslinger.

Shooting antifreeze out the overflow cap bought this wheeler used have had prob after prob with cooling system so far. I'm thinking rad relocate and thermostat change. I was going to do relocate anyways the radiator gets to full of crap. Thought might make working on cooling system easier any ways. Any thought let me know!?

I see a lot of guys having problems and some of it is this.....the coolant reservoir isn't to be filled all the way. When cold you fill it only to the low level. The high mark is when hot. The coolant needs room to expand when it heats up. If you FILL the tank when it's cold, as soon as it gets hot it's going to purge itself of excess fluid.
When cold my 500 likes to be a bit BELOW the low mark. If I fill it to the low level mark it will still spit some out and return to this level.
