Could be a stuck thermostat or bad temperature switch preventing the cooling fan from turning on.

Fuel tank is under the seat , you have to trip a lever by moving it forward and the section will pop up to access the cap.

I bought a 94 vmax sled,had it running for a minute and now see a puddle of coolant under the machine.Ant idea's where I should start? Tom

If it is coming from the overflow tube it might be just overfilled, or could indicate an overheating problem, if it is coming from a small hole under the engine'water pump, it indicates a worn pump seal
