05 1000s temperature issue

Hey Guys,

Now I know this thread has been covered before, so please don't bite my head off. Recently I did some maintainece and parts replacement on my 05. I placed the radiator with a new one, some fins were bent on the original from normal wear/tear riding, I also replaced the air filter with a BMC filter, put on a set of RG3 and decat midpipe. Lastly replaced the stock eprom with a FBF eprom.

Now that all this is done when the bike is on and even in motion my temperature just keeps climbing. I started her up let her warm up for a few mins, then took her for a ride around the block doing about 45mph the whole time and my temp stayed at 219F. I'm not sure what might cause this. The bike ran perfectly before. Any suggestions would be helpful.

One thing I think it might be is the eprom or the coolant. Not sure though.

I'd make sure I plugged the fans in correctly after the swap and that they are functioning correctly.

Ok. I'll check. Another side note when I turn the bike off the fans come on and cool the bike down.

Fans should turn off when bike is off. I think your fans are confused. Can you elaborate?

Depending on the model, and what he means when saying he turned the bike off. If you turned it off at the "run" switch, on some models the fan's will keep going. If you turn the ignition off, then all should be dead.

You have air in your system, read some more.
What do you mean when you say the fans come on when you turn the bike off, don't they run when the bike is running.

Nature of the beast that these bikes run hot.
With that said, I believe it is normal for the fans to remain on for a short while after walking away from the bike. Even my car does that sometimes. Your best options are probably in this order:
1. Microtec ECU (rumor has it that this will change when the fans turn on and one or two other tweaks that will make running temps lower)
2. Fan switch (so you can turn the fans on at any moment, i.e. traffic stop and go)
3. Engine Ice / Water Wetter
4. Upgraded pump
5. Upgraded fans for better flow
6. Ceramic coat exhaust
7. Vented fairings
8. Don't start the bike.

I've spent a chunk of change on trying to cool the bike, granted I live in south Texas. Either way it is what it is.

Just to make it clear, Donsy is correct its when I turn the bike off at the run switch. And I think I found the problem. First the fan didn't have a good connection and I noticed that the coolant was low. I filled it up with a gallon plus and the coolant reservoir was full, I guess when I put the bike under a load it circulated it and wasnt enough.

Wow, yeah a gallon + of more coolant will do it.
When I change out coolant, I'll fill to the line, rock the bike back and forth while on it, start it up for a few seconds with the cap off, turn off and check the line for a refill. Repeat as necessary with a short ride in between.

No MV does this.

Your best options are probably in this order:
1. Microtec ECU (rumor has it that this will change when the fans turn on and one or two other tweaks that will make running temps lower)

Not a rumour, fact.

2. Fan switch (so you can turn the fans on at any moment, i.e. traffic stop and go)

Great mod
