MXZ Hand warmers work, but not hot

Post by LOOK2 » Mon, 28 Feb 2005 07:04:46


I have a 2001 MXZ 500 liquid cooled, electric start. The hand warmers work
on both high and low, but even on high they don't get very hot. My other two
sleds will about burn your hands off on high after a while but this one you
can not even feel through the gloves. On a bare hand they are warm for sure.
Any ideas? The switches test out fine and they are getting juice. They are
definitely warm, no question but on a cold day you can not feel any warmth
through your gloves. The sled runs awesome and the head light is very
bright.


Thanks in advance for your advice!

I've done this in the past - spray inside the handlebar with
insulating foam from a can. Drill the opening at the end of the ***
hand warmer to a size that allows the plastic straw in snugly. Spray
in a small amount slowly. Have a couple of large screws on hand to
fill the opening as soon as you pull the straw out. Pull the straw out
slowly while covering the straw and opening with a rag all around in
case it sprays back when pulled out. Wipe quickly and put the screws
in the opening to prevent any leak out. Keep warm for a few hours as
per the directions on can. It works great.
