If you run your Polaris General with a broken radiator, you will cause the engine to break as well. And without a brush guard or bumper to protect your radiator, it is at risk of becoming damaged or broken completely. Even a perfectly intact and functional radiator can fail due to clogging from dust, mud, and other airborne particulates. One of the worst combinations for a radiator is water and dust. If you get your radiator wet, it will eat dust like mad, clogging it and restricting its cooling capabilities. Aftermarket UTV accessories like jacks, bumpers, and lights can also block the airflow into and out of the radiator. To prevent this, many riders choose to install radiator relocation kits like those by CYA and Wild Boar on their Polaris Generals. These radiator relocation kits place your radiator out of direct impact with mud and other debris that can clog your UTV radiator and cause the engine to overheat. Side-by-side radiator relocation kits also make your radiator more easily accessible for cleaning and maintenance.
If your radiator is shot and you’re looking for an aftermarket replacement, SuperATV makes great Polaris General radiators. And to protect the radiator against errant rocks, mud, sticks and other debris, many riders go with Grizzz-Tek radiator guards. We’ve heard from multiple Polaris General owners about such radiator guards, extolling their effectiveness and advocating complete sets as one of the best investments they’ve put on their machine. So whether you’re looking for a completely new aftermarket radiator or just a better way to protect and enhance the one you have, when it comes to radiators and radiator accessories, there is no better place than Everything Polaris Ranger to find exactly what you need.
