go back to when the bike first started to run hot. was there something that you did to the bike just before that? anything out of the ordinary that comes to mind? was it suddenly low on coolant for no apparent reason? something..........anything, you can think of to help give some sort of indication.

how many miles are on the bike?

are you sure the fan is working 100% freely/properly? You need to double check something possibly, are you 100% you've topped offf the coolant in the radiator?

Yes as it sits I watched the fan come on blowing extremely hot air and temp climbs to 200+ and another day I tried wet wetter and I always top it off and bleed out air bubbles and I kill it right before it gets to 245 I use 50/50 mix ...fist time i drained it coolant was dark green almost brown. .

Even though this is houston heat is extremely hot out and look up that this bike runs hot for this model ..when it hit 250 and red light came on I was worried ..put too much money in to loose it.. The bike runs extremely well ..I tend to avoid traffic and do a lot of night riding I just can't let it sit for too long

Is the coolant actually circulating through the engine?
Sounds like a bad thermostat.

I am having similar issues with my 06 1000rr getting hot, however, I shut mine off when it climbs passed 230 at a stop.



I am going to replace my fluids and wrap my headers to keep the heat off the radiator and crank case.



Hopefully that will keep the temps down.

Check and see if radiator is dirty on outside ,my zx10r was and I cleaned it and it ran a little bit cooler. I hope you don't have a blown head gasket.
