Bike overheating?
« on: July 31, 2018, 08:14:47 AM »

I feel as if my engine gets way too hot, usually my bars are at 3, but goes to 4 on my c/h meter, What can be the issue?

if i remember correctly, 3 bars is normal operating temp. 4 bars the radiator fan should kick in and cool it back down to 3.

Is your fan kicking in ?
If so , it's probably your thermostat .
Also make sure you have enough coolant .
When this happens again , check to see if your fan has cut in (the one in front of the radiator)

Of course it is , I am on drugs  :o
It's hard to miss a big fan inside a cowling on the rad  ;D
BTW , there is no need to put the extra diodes in the display circuit  on the gear change mod and I did say at the time ;D
Just thought I would say as we are picking bones  ::)

I agree with spit, it's either the thermostat or the fan.

My fan kicks in yes, my thermostat is fine, I can physically feel my bike extra hot and even my girlfriend agreed
Iíve seen other bikes and Iím sure as hell they do not get as hot as mine, is it possible my clutch is causing my bike to overheat?
Earlier I maxed my bike out at 122 it didnít wanna go faster, usually when I first got my bike I maxed it out at 137 Iím sure it could of went more.
My clutch feels good and it is adjusted well but not to my liking or not ďperfectĒ as Iíd say.
I can tell it can be adjusted more to make it better.
But Iím not gonna touch it Iím not gonna change stuff on my engine myself, worst idea Iíve ever had, ****ing with my clutch by my handlebar is what got my bike ruined along with me buying another engine
You learn from your mistakes thatís all I can say

It has to be one or the other mad.

The only thing that it cannot be, is nothing. If the clutch is not slipping, then it's not the clutch.

How do you know your thermostat is OK ? Have you tested it ?
There are only 2 ways I know to test a thermostat . One is put it in hot water and see if it operates and the other is with a heat gun testing the temps before and after it .
It could be your clutch .
If it's slipping , it will cook the plates and get the rest of the bike rather hot but if it was slipping , after a while you would be unable to change gear .It has happened to me after a lever change so I know and I just needed to adjust the slack on the cable .
Make sure you have a few mm free play on the lever .
I think you need to find someone who knows bikes and get them to look at it .
You are going from one disaster to another .
It's probably nothing big but you need to have some idea what you are doing otherwise you will end up in a world of pain .
Your "mechanic" needs to be fired . He sounds like a numpty .
The hottest my bike gets to is between 3 and 4 bars but normally stays on 3 when I am riding .
