There has got to be a problem somewhere, the Rhino's will run for ever in the heat usually.

after it cooled down it would start. i have moved air box to front under hood. that seemed to help. i also installed diffrant tip (bigger) on muffler. and put a hood scoop & cut hole to pull in more AIR. i am waiting for my hi pressure alba fuel pump to arrive so i can install i was told this would help. if it is vaper locking wich i am thinking it is.

alright you moved the air filter have you rejetted the carb for the change? that is one reason for running hot possibly.
have you bled all the air outta the cooling system? probably the other reason.

if you modified the air box in any way, you will need to rejet the carb, you are probably running it lean, which will make it heat up, not good for a engine. and putting a tip on the exhaust actual makes it slower and louder

Cool

it ran HOT BEFORE I MOVED AIR BOX>. this is why i moved the air box. and it seemes to have helped. it did NOT get hot and shut down AFTER THAT. as far as rejetting it runs fine . it is running COOLER WITH BOX MOVED TO THE FRONT! does not need rejetting... again i moved air box AFTER heating up issues.
