Just bought a 06 zx6r... Had it serviced and the shop said it is in great shape.. In the last month I've put about 1000 miles on her... Yesterday she started overheating.. Ross 2 hrs one way she had bought 3 hrs to cool down ten jumped back on the highway return trip.. Mid trip the temp gauge started fluctuating +\- 40 degrees... Would stay at about 205 degrees above 8000rpm but as soon as I was below 8k the temp would bounce all over again... Limped her home.. Then this morning I started her bout 60degrees outside within 5 mins she has at the Hi temp.. Turned off then back in and was at 150 the engine wasn't even that warm... Ideas...

Hello and welcome!

Is the coolant at the proper level? What is the highest temperature reading you have seen when it is overheating?

It reaches the HI temp but as soon as I rev it it drops back to about 200. The coolant was a lil low and topped it off and got the air out the system...
