overheating

Put new coolant in
Tested thermostat in boiling water, works fine.

Got an FI light with the code 34(servo or whatever) Servo motor was busted, the teeth on the gear were off and it didn't work at all. So what caused it to break in the first place? Someone mentioned a flapper?

Anyways, why would my bike still be overheating? my ass gets really hot when riding, never had that with any other bike. Temp will be around 210 when riding freeway, then jump up when I slow down until it gets over 240(HI).

ECU, Servo? Any ideas?

I just ripped this bike all apart and put it back together, went for a lil ride today after putting a new thermo housing in cause I broke the other one. Still over heats, i really want to ride.

Make sure there is no air inside the radiator or hoses.

Yes, plus make sure to knock on all the radiator hoses to help bring all trapped air to the surface.

I only have my zx636 about 3 wks and was worried about how hot it was getting after I came off the free-way into city speeds. I checked the pump, thermo-stat and radiator and all were ok. My fan wasn't coming in when it should of and that mixed with travelling at slow speeds made her overheat. Check that your fan is coming in when it should, its about 98 oC / 210 oF. Start it from cold and let it idle until it warms up to temp and see what temp it comes in at
