bike overheating!

:eh:

i think i know the prob. i overfilled the overflow resevoir above the full mark this morning in the dark before i left for work, on the way its temp was fine till i stopped at the few lights that i have to deal with. i could sit for maybe 30-45 seconds and it would start climbing to 200 from about 182-185. does anyone agree with this?

i am gonna drain it before i leave for lunch and ride it home and see if that helps, i sure hope so, b/c its gonna be really warm out there sittin in traffic. :dontknow:

Re: bike overheating!

You could always put a manual switch on your fan to help keep it cool while sitting at the lights. I'm thinking of doing this myself actually.

Re: bike overheating!

well, mine is always above 200...i'd say 210 - 218, but when it's really hot it'll climb to 230 and above (if it's in traffic)

Re: bike overheating!

230+ is when you should start worrying about it.

Plus if you have a functional overheating lamp. You shouldn't worry about the temp much.

remember stay under 230
