Okay mate there is 2 temp sensors on the 1078.
Download the workshop manual from the link provided.
Them locate the two sensors ans swap their plugs around, warm the bike up and see what happens.

Have you checked the fuse - F5.

Might be SPU but not usualy a problem on the later B4's as far as I know.

Thanks Donsy,
Really appreciate your feedback; I have checked the fuse F5 also replaced it with new one. Same time, when we talking about the two sensors, it that the one on workshop manual Section D page 7 that #1- B: Engine coolant temperature sensor and #2- E: Intake air pressure/temperature sensor?

I have changed new #1-B: Engine coolant temperature sensor, but have not replaced #2-E: intake air pressure/temperature sensor, I just unplugged and cleaned it, so do you think that could be a possibility of faulty? Is there any ways to check the intake air pressure sensor if it works or not? Awaiting for the feedback again.

Kind regards,

Does the coolant valve open, so water gets to the radiator?

Not the air pressure sensor. Are you looking at the right manual. Section E - Page 8.

Thermostat hb , that could be the reason for his overheating.

As far as I remember the sensor on the engine is the one that activates the fan, so even if the thermostat does not open, the fan should still kick in ?

You are right about the thermostat word, could find it at teme of writing. But it does not make sense to me kicking the fan when the radiator does not get hot water.

If his display is showing 130degC hb, then it's getting hot water I recon ?

Not when it is the head sensor that goes to the dash and fans are controlled by the radiator sensor which has no hot water yet!

On the F4 and I thought it was the same on the B4 ( sorry if I'm wrong Hans ) , the radiator sensor does the display and the cylinder head sensor does the ECU and fans ?

Are you near your bike, can you unplug it to check, or do you know for sure ?

dear Donsy & Hans,

Thanks again for your comments, I might be wrong, but what i could see on Brutale 1078 RR is one sensor that's plugged on the left side of the engine, there is non or could not see any sensor on the radiator itself as earlier model has it on the left side. when it reach to 130c. hot water will come out as well as steams in the bottom.

Same time Donsy, mentioned that the water temp. sensor on CPU where it located? thanks all for your time.

Cheers,
