I just re-read all the posts. 225* at idle is normal. Fan should be on.

As for the hot start if it doesn't even try to turn over, obviously the battery is getting weak. When everything is heat soaked, the starter windings consume more amps to turn the motor over. So when it cools down, it's easier to turn over. Also you need to verify the battery voltage while running to make sure the system is charging. If the system stops charging when hot, it could be running the battery down while riding, then when you park it for a bit, the battery comes back up. It's possible.

Do this:
1) Flush refill cooling system and verify the fan operation.

2) Fully charge the battery, makes sure it has 12.5v atleast while sitting.

3) start the bike and measure the battery voltage at 4-5k rpms. Make sure it's 13.5-15.0v.

Report back.

Thanks everyone for your advice and insight. You have been very helpful.
ZXAlan, I will update the posting as soon as I have taken all of the steps you suggested. I will also look into having the radiator checked, hoses an thermostat as well.

most recommend a 50/50 mixture of water/antifreeze but a 60/40 mixture will actually run a little cooler.

Don't go with less antifreeze than that because of the corrosion protection it offers.

Just test it in your driveway once you've done a full flush and what Patrick recommended. Start the bike, and see what the max temp it will restart is. Then let it get hotter and hotter to see at what temp the fans kick on, if any. If it starts to boil, don't shut it down, it will keep boiling and could maybe possibly damage the engine. Get a water hose and lightly / softly spray the radiator. It will cool off extremely quickly, especially if the thermostat is opening like it should.

Hey guys, wanted to give you an update. I had the starter replaced on my bike and it still did the same thing. The mechanic charged my battery over night this morning he started it, let it get to about 200, shut it down and it cranked up no problem at that tem. At this temp it normally won't start. So I think I am just going to have to get a brand new battery. Witchdoctor, I guess you were right on this one. He is going to keep it another day to see if he can get it to do the same thing again. I don't ride everyday and I don't have my bike on a battery tender so that may be the problem.

I don't ride mine everyday either, and I bet I can go out to my garage and mine will start right up after 6 weeks of sitting, with no battery tender, as I don't own one. I would assume your battery bro. Have you had that tested?

sounds like you need to have someone really check it out., sounds like someone just threw a part at it.... as far as the no starting goes. im on north side along with patrick and others, get it fixed/looked at by someone who knows what they are doing before you get stranded or with a bigger problem
