Bike puked its guts mid way through 350km ride today - got it home ok - temp is fine at speed but goes high anything less than around 70kph.

Suspect fan is not operating - any hints on where to start or reference to existing troubleshooting post?

thanks heaps

Doesn't appear to be an issue now - blown fuse (duh) - checked for cycling and seems fine. So which points do you do the voltage and amperage checks from? Couldn't se an obvious way of doing it or do you need special leads? I have a simple DVM with pin probes.

Hi mate
Not a very common sight on the new bikes so I would suggest you check physically if the fans come in or not, just run the bike stationary and check. You might have a faulty thermostat ?

Thanks Donsy - I watched it like a hawk and it cut in and out just fine and gauge responded accordingly. I'll keep a eye on it just in case it resurfaces. I did go over a very bumpy road for 30 km seemed to happen just after that. Dammit too cos I was just getting into some nice twisties but pulling up anyway. Just took a lame way home to keep it running cool.

Deadly - 2 bars above midrange is all it should climb to - under any normal operating conditions. Fans cut in when it goes above the first bar from midrange. The faster you go the cooler it generally runs :)

Is it normal for temp to sit high unless when im moving fast

Depends what you call high. How many bars ?

I would make sure coolant level is ok and purge the system of air.You may have had or have an air lock in there.

If it is definitely still running hot..then check the sealing of the radiator cap.

Of course something could be causing hot engine running like fueling

Renaissance, one way to get at the contacts in those very small connectors is to use a straightened paper clip and alligator leads.

You do have to be careful about shorting the bare metal to ground.
