Hi There, hoping you guys can help me.
I've just bought this bike,
and it stays at half temperature on the guage for 25 mins and then
temperative climbs quickly into the red if I sit still.
If I can ride off quickly the temperature comes down quickly but shoots straight back up again when I sit still in traffic.
checked the fluid levels and they are topped up with the correct
coolant. I also listened out for the fan. I expected this to kick in
just before the guage reached the red but it came on well into the red
and didn't stay on long enough to actually bring the guage down at
My friend says the fan should bring the guage down by around 10degrees, but shouldn't it bring it back down to 1/2 level?
Do you think its a thermostat or Water pump problem?
I haven't felt any adverse problem with the bike, as never leave the bike on when it hits directly into red.
Is it safe to ride in the red for a while?
