Trail riding can be pretty brutal on these bikes. They have no fan to force air through the radiator. I've seen a lot of bikes start to boil out the caps on trail rides. Best thing you can do is always try to stay moving, once it happens though just let it sit and cool off. You could run engine ice radiator fluid in the bike for a better cooling coolant. I'm not sure if after market water pumps would improve cooling performance too?
