Hi Folks,
I just bought a 2000 450ES from a neighbor of mine - this is my first quad! Have taken it for a couple of short rides and today after a very short ride (200 yards?), as I was pulling it into my RV shelter, I noticed that the red light in the upper, right corner of the dash was starting to glow - the icon is a drop (of oil?) in a motor housing with a thermometer next to it. I'm assuming this is the oil temp warning light. I should have left it running and quickly checked to see if the fan was turning, but instead I turned the motor off and noodled on it for a few minutes. I decided to turn it on and let it idle for a minute. The light didn't come back on, and when I looked at the fan, it was not turning.
So I guess my questions are:
1. Is that indeed the oil temp warning light?
2. When should the fan be turning? Always on? Or is there a thermostat?
3. What are the things to check if I suspect that there is something wrong with the fan? I checked all the fuses yesterday and they were fine.
Thank you in advance for your help!
