i have an x1100C but it does have a factory heater and two radiators. i don't have any trouble keeping the operating temp up. the cooling fan still kicks on occasionally but my cold weather is rarely below 0. could the thermostat be opening prematurely? or could it be you have the hoses to the heater in a constant circulation??

come to think about it my 08 1100 only has one radiator and even with the heater running full blast the fan still cycles and the engine maintains operating temps. i would bet a wooden nickle that the heater is bypassing the thermostat.

Well your nickel is safe this kit does take the water before the stat.Where does Kubota grab there water for their heaters.It must be in the top hose after the stat because if it is in the block it would bypass stat also.It did go three bars after a hard load yesterday 170 degrees.A 125 degrees out the vents but it was 32 degrees outside.Joe

i don't know where they supply the water but if i get a chance tomorrow i will look. i haven't taken a temp at the register but i can do that too. my bota runs three bars when running in the field and two at idle. i rarely run the temp control above 1/4 cause it is to hot.

Have you checked the temp control knob to make sure it is opening the supply valve to the heater fully. I can't say I have a heat problem, I have to turn mine down when plowing snow, it just about drives me out.
