bike over heating

Hello I am desperate for help my bike been out of commission for about 2 months now. I have a 2005 Suzuki gsxr 750 and my bike is over heating when it is at a stand still in traffic and on the freeway. My fan is not kicking on and it is reaching temperatures over 270 degrees. In addition I have a solid red light that appears in my odometer and the F1 signal is also appearing in my odometer. What can I do I am stress and I am seeking any kind of help. Can someone direct me in the right direction. I am willing to let someone to come and let someone look at my bike if possible. Please help I cant take this is very frustrating.

Yes I checked for the leaks and I already flushed the radiator and it continues to do the same thing.

Post which part of town you're in and you may get someone close to stop by and have a look at the bike.

Since your fan is not coming on, I would change out the thermostat swich...but before you do, check to make sure the fan is plugged in (no brakes in the wires etc...) you can test the fan by simply jumping it to a hot wire..on my bikes, I usually put a toggle switch in line so I can turn the fan on anytime I want to..

Thanks I will try that out but how do I hot wire the fan to force it to turn on curious I tried to jump it with my battery about a week ago and that was an epic fail. because it seem like the fan leads are cover by some plastic pieces so I wasn't getting a good connection with the alligator clips that I brought from Walmart I seen it on a you tube video. I actually disconnected the entire fan It is sitting in my car right now. If this don't work do you think you might be able to take a look at it

Be careful jumping you can blow the fuse. Very common failure is the fan switch in the radiator. Check the fuse!

I've only worked on one GSXR, but I would put the bike in dealer mode to find out what the FI code is first. Google it - you just jump a plug with a wire. No idea if it's related, but that is what I'd do first. Do you have a service manual? If not, I have a service manual for the 06/07 600/750 model in my garage I'm willing to lend you so you can sort why your fan won't turn on.
