Hi all,

Thanks for looking at my thread. What do you guys think? My bike runs at a good temperature while its in action. But when i stop at a light, the temperature keeps on rising until it gets to high, thats if i dont move. Is it my water pump that is not working properly. Any suggestions will help. Thanks a lot in advance.

I took it to a mechanic to get its full service. Since then the bike has been much more responsive and faster. But its over heating.... =(

Yes the fan is coming on. But when i turn it off and then turn the key on the fan does not come on.

coolant is quite well actually. I checked the radiator level and it was fine. The reservoir also marks full. I was thinking of flushing the coolant. Think ill help?

actually i am not quite aware of everything he did. Although he did mention that some of my lines where clogged up. How can i check for an air pocket?

how does the overflow bottle look? is it full/empty?

when its COLD. pull the rad cap off. and check the coolant level. if its low, top it off.
start the bike, let it warm up. keep topping off the rad as needed. once you cant add anymore. put the cap back on. make sure the overflow is between the lines. ride it this way for a while keeping an eye on the overflow.

The overflow can be full and the radiator be low. It CAN happen.

check out the radiator. Pull the right side mid fairing to get easy access to the radiator cap.
