    did you recently change the coolant on this bike and the problems started after this coolant change?



    50/50 on the bottle usually means its already premixed.

Just open up your radiator kick it with the top off to get air out of the lines, also with the cap off pinch the hoses to let air out too...

yzf's run hot make sure you dont idle it for long times, because you need air going into the raiator to cool the coolant...

04 yz250f pipe at motor glowing red hot


Any reason you had to change the jetting??New pipe,Intakes.?But,even though you may have it a bit rich on idle the pipes WILL get very hot,very quickly without some sort of air flow over the front of the motor and radiator.At the very least,have a strong fan blowing directly on the front of the motor if you are going to let the bike run and you are not riding it.I have seen the white plastics in front of the radiator distort from the radiant heat.Don't idle them for in more then 20 seconds.It can do heaps of damage.Ride the bike and see if its running well.When you stop,turn it off.All the yz and wrf will get very hot at idle.Hope this helps

My 2005 Yamaha R6 is overheating at idle...like sitting at red lights.. I wonder if its a temp switch or a blown fuse, or even a wiring problem. Any help?


if your cooling fan is not switching on then i would check fuses then if all fuses are good check for 12V at you cooling fan when temp gets between half and 3/4 way to hot . if you have no voltage it could be a temp sensor or relay . if you have voltage there your fan motor has gone bad and needs to be replaced . another thing to check is the hoses running to the radiator . let the bike idle and warm up and check the temp of the radiator hoses . if one is much cooler than it should be then you might have a bad thermostat on your bike and its not opening enough to let coolant flow at idle. water pump could be going bad as well. if the bike warms up and fan does not kick on untill you rev it up a bit i would check the thermostat and waterpump

Overheating


If you did indeed overheat the engine to the point that is stuck, you would probably know it by the antifreeze being poured all over the ground. The bike would be really hot just sitting on it. It would smell like antifreeze and just smell hot.. I know, smell hot? but an engine that has been ran to hot has a pretty distinctive hot smell... It doesnt sound like an overheating situation if none of the above happened. A bike that is overheating will begin to loose power before it stops. LIke lacuna said, everything inside of the engine will start to expand from the heat and the piston will stick in the cylinder. Most of the time when this happens, the bike will cool off and restart. But, usually with problems. Warped or cracked head, cracked block, broken piston rings. These engines are aluminum and dont like to be overheated and warp really easy. If the engine is really hot, it will not turn over until it cools down enough. Im not saying it couldnt have overheated and then restarted without any problems, its happened before, but just not likely. But, if this is the case, take lacunas advice and change all of the fluids. Your oil will be nasty. Maybe get ahold of the previous owner and see if it has had any probems. It kinda sounds electrical to me. as long as the above overheating signs didnt happen. If you dont think it was overheating and it happens again, try to push start the bike to see if the engine turns over. even putting the bike in second or third gear just see if you can move the bike back and forth. If nothing else, you'll at least know its not locked up.
