If you are still breaking in your f4 it will tend to get hot. For some reason as the motor breaks in it will run cooler. Mine has cooled off a good 10 degrees or more.

Don't let it get above 238 degrees or your bike will shut down and your battery will be drained!

When the fuse was burned i got 140 C (284 F). The engine didn't stop but the coolant was boiling and finally spitted from radiator; it's when i finally noticed temperature read and immediatelly turned off engine with, thanks God, no damages.
Since then i always keep an eye on temperature.
Till 114/120 C (248 F) no problems normally. With F4 312 even a bit more.

Step 1) purge the system of any air.
Step 2) Fill the coolant bottle to the proper level.
Step 3) Make sure the plastic cap is holding pressure.

If none of the above solve your problem, start looking at the fixes posted in numerous threads.

I can confirm the new impeller works a treat ( we fitted one recently ) I have also heard that a product called Engine Ice works well and is a coolant replacement but not tested it yet.
