    Re: Over heating problem

    will do. as an answer to finallmpact I knwo it is over heating because when it reaches max temp bars are maxed out and top bar blinks the bike will shut off at stop lights or speeds below 10-15 mph I can smell the hot oil and feel the heat it takes 5 mins or so b4 she will fire up again. im now wondering if its a fan problem not pump issue. but how do you test a fan that is spinning and turns on when it suposed too?

    Get an IR thermometer on the engine to get actual temperatures. Otherwise you're just guessing.

    If the fan is turning on, are you sure you're getting adequate air flow through the radiator vanes? I know it sounds very basic but make sure you see light through the radiator. In your original post you did say the fan comes on at 4 bars.
    If you can't fix it by hitting it with a hammer, it's electrical!

    Re: Over heating problem

    in one of the replies that didnt show lol, when I took the radiator off i soaked it in hot water for a good 30-45 mins the fully flushed it and rinsed it for a good 10 mins or so. I could hold it up to the sun and see through it the one thing in all this I am sure of is lack of air flow is not the issue. I should have put this in the post of flushing out the radiator.

    Re: Over heating problem

    Did you ever tighten ALL the hose clamps?

    Also, are you loosing coolant thru the over flow bottle?

    Re: Over heating problem

    Lets recap - during an overheating episode, the coolant BOILS! When it boils it makes steam. Steam makes pressure and the 15PSI radiator cap is over pressured and coolant from the block leaves headed to the reservoir.

    If this is NOT happening, then your problem is electrical and Cliff should come over and hit it with a hammer!

    Re: Over heating problem

    And ya, 15 psi is a WAG.... Think it's 16. End game is the same.
    Did it expel fluid? If no, likely a false reading and the ECU is shutting down for invalid reasons.

    As in, ECU set points are such that once it boils over it has no cooling and actually shuts down before permanent damage occurs.
    Make sense?
