Temp gauge going up too high on honda 125 bike

Bike owned since Oct, has been fine until recently the temp gauge goes up regardless of speed or distance until it is nearly at overheat point. Have checked coolant level and oil, both seem ok.
On some models there is a fan, but I don't think this one has? Not sure what to check next to try and solve the problem?
Thanks,

    Thanks for the advice, I might just play safe and renew the thermostat altogether. YoIur advice reminded me of some of my old cars and similar probs I had with them.

    Thanks,

    Mike

Hi m8,,u need to test the thermostat, usually only has one wire running off it,,and sits behind cylinder head or in the rad its self,, u can test it by boiling up some water and dippin the thermostat in ,, and seein if it moves,, if u have the stud version of thermostat,then a tester will be needed,, red wire onthe live connection of thermostat and black tester wire just touchin the body of the thermostat,,the needle should move slowly up reading ,after being dippt in hot water,,if no readings or movement then u will have to replace it,,also check that the wires on the temp gauge are not corroded,

2006 3.0ltr diesel turbo temp gauge goes up at idle but back to normal when driving engine not hot does not overheat when going long distance????


Maybe your cooling fan is broken. I had the same problem with a honda civic. It would overheat at idle or low speed, but at high speed the air forced through the cooler would keep the temp down. I don't know why it broke, but I just wired the fan to a circuit that came on when the car started. I used a multimeter to check the voltage of various wires in the engine compartment until I found one that was off when the car was off and on when the car was on.

If your coolant overflow is bubbling then regardless of what your gauge says you are having overheating issues. If your coolant is missing with no aparent leaks then you need to check your oil for a milky consistency and apearance which would most likely point to a blown head gasket. This would also explain overheating. Hope this helps

2002 sunfire surges at idle with a/c on and a/c blows cold at speed, warm at idle


The temp gauge will go up due to the added load of the AC on the cooling system, and as long as it doesn't overheat you are fine. I would have the system checked for a low charge, the symptom,s fit. You will need gauges and then the pressures tested to find out what the system charge is doing.

Overheating problem


i had something similar once, it ended up being the intake radiator hose, it has a metal coil inside, mine was broken and when you revved the motor it would **** the hose shut and overheat, but under 2000 rpm it was fine .

06 Kia Sedona overheats when ac is on. If the ac is off the van will return to normal temps. Had the compressor just replaced and v-belt. Both fans appear to be running when ac is on.


Does the engine over heat or the gauge goes to hot. Really hot. Since the A/C is on , this puts an extra load on the engine. This is why the fans come on when the A/C is turned on. This is usually low speed fan mode. High speed doesn't come on untilll 220 to 230 degrees. Most vehicles. Cars don't over heat untill the gauge gets in the red, when it starts getting close is time to worry and stop. I guess the question to you would be, What does the temp gauge read?

I have a 1980 Honda CX 500 Custom and the Temperature gauge shows hot if I run the bike above 6000 rpm for any length of time. If I run a bit slower it seems to hold its own. What temp should the coolant...


Honda temperature gauges tend to run high before the electric fans kick in. They also tend to read differently on different bikes of the same model (fuel gauge, temp gauge , speedometer, etc.)Your fan is driven attached directly to your cam so it spins constantly. If your machine is not actually overheating or boiling over and has plenty of anti freeze, I would just keep an eye on it and not worry about it. If your engine gets really hot it will tend to leak anti freeze down the left rear cover past the water pump seal. This is normal and should be of little concern unless the water pump develops a steady drip. Then the water pump seal is bad and will need to be replaced.

Santa with his son Banta were traveling on a boat after traveling one mile from the starting point the hat of Santa fell down. After 5 minutes Banta told his father about the hat. Santa turned the boat and...


At time 'ZERO', the hat was at distance 'ZERO' from the starting-point.
At time 'T', the hat was at distance 'ONE MILE' from the starting point.
The speed of the boat was the MAXIMUM speed of the boat, MINUS the speed of the current.
At time 'T+5', the hat was being carried by the stream-current toward distance 'ZERO'.
At time 'T+10', the hat was at distance 'ZERO', and the boat was at distance 'ZERO'.
The speed of the boat for the most-recent '10' minutes was the MAXIMUM speed, PLUS the speed of the current.

So, calculate the distance travelled at the 'T+5' time:
DISTANCE = VELOCITY1 multiplied by TIME1.
DISTANCE = VELOCITY2 multiplied by TIME2.

where 'VELOCITY1' is the speed travelling AGAINST the current,
and 'VELOCITY2' is the speed travelling WITH the current.

Finish this "homework" assignment on your own.
