In very cold temps on hardpack I'm getting the flashing over-temp warning on a regular basis. Wife's C7 runs in same conditions with no problems. If I break away from the pack and pick the pace up it goes out, but at slower speeds with the group there's just not enough snow contacting the heat exchangers. As temps warm into the 3 to 5F range the snow changes enough that the light rarely comes on. Just wondering if I'm the only one.

Same is happening on my F1000. It seems to over heat / temp. light flash when I'm passing through towns, doing alot of starting - stopping, and idling at stop signs. Once I get back to trail speeds the light quites flashing!? Taking it to the dealer to get it looked over, I'll let you know what they tell me!

Mine did it once on a lake with hardly any snow, kind of expected it. I found some snow right away and it went out just like it is suppose to do. My Saber Cat 700 did it and my wife's Saber 600 does it also.

My F1000 is stock and the light also comes on more than I think it should. It happens even in 10-15 degree temps. Same thing happens when I pickup speed and find some extra snow, the light goes out. If you are riding on the side of the rode. It comes on quite easy.
