Hi, There are several things it could be so hang in there. First the most obvious. When the temp was hot was the radiator fan on? Have you checked the radiator fluid to make sure it was full(do this only when cool)? If these check out the next step is the thermostat, it is inline with the hose coming from the radiator. After that the water pump would need checked and last believe it not the oil cooler. Ya gotta love long distance troubleshooting. Good Luck!

Hi i bought a cbr125 and due to cold weather i drained the radiator and filled it up with water and anti-freez up to the max level. I ran the bike untill warm then looked if the res needed toping up but it...


Sounds like you have an air lock in the radiator.
The air lock stops the water from circulating and produces over heating.
Get the radiator checked by a Motorcycle Technician.

Pipe gets red hot and backfires


If its not the valves it could be lean. Is the hot start adjusted right? They mean it when they say check valves every 300 miles on these bikes. I just went through the same thing on one.

High Temps


well girl your dead wrong about the rad damage any restriction in the air flow through the rad will drop its cooling ability bit time,,,and any water you tip into the rad should flow right through it very very fast or its partly blocked up, if you keep running your bike when its very close to the red line on the heat gage your goint to reck your motor,,, get your rad fixed first, you could try to lift the beny cooling fins back up but be very gentle bending them or you will rip the rad at bits
if the carbs are running week becouse you have the wrong ex pipes fitted that wont help keep your motior cool so tune the motor up right as well if all this still fails to cool things down wip the thermostat out and run without it till you get a new rad?
dont keep cooking your bike engine???

My 96' gsxr750 stalls when it gets hot at idle, say at a red light for instance. it needs to cool down for about 15 minutes before restarting.need help!!!!


So what you need to address is the overheating issue.

First check radiator fluid while engine is up to operating temperature, add if neccessary.

Then check to make sure your fan is kicking on when your bike starts to get hot. If your fan doesn't kick on that is your problem. If your fan does kick on and your fluid is full move on to next step.

Remove thermostat from bike and test to see if its working properly. You can put the thermostat in a pot of water on the stove. Use a candy/meat thermometer to see at what temp the thermostat opens up. It should open at around 180 degrees.
If the thermostat doesn't open up before the water starts boiling that is your problem. Or you can just change it because your bike has sat for 1.5 years and now the thermostat probably is sticking causing no radiator fluid to enter your engine to cool it down.

Hope this helps,

Cbr 600 fan stopped working


ast the halfway mark isnt overheating. Any bike will rapidly increase in temp when stopped or moving slow. the fan will not kick on until the bike reaches around 220 deg. Im not sure how that relates to your gauge as Im assuming you have just a C and H with a few lines between., but Im sure its near the upper range of the gauge. I would think your bike isnt hot enough for the fan to kick on. I would let the bike get a little hotter and see. If the fan hasnt kicked on when the needle reaches the upper portion of the gauge, take it for a quick spin to cool it off, dont just shut it off as that will actually create hot spots within the motor, and then consider either the fan is faulty, or the relay. You can pull the fan and test it with a 12 volt battery. One hot, one ground. If it works, it must be the relay. I doubt the stall has anything to do with the bike running warmer, unless it is truely overheating and you have antifreeze pouring out of it, then it might be. You might just be in need of a good carb cleaning.

Coolant Leak


There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding. If I remember, only something about it's normal and goes away when the seal around the water pump expands, but since my ride has over 5,000 miles I would imagine it wouldn't be pertaining to my situation. Make sure your rad does not have a small hole that spits coolant when under preasure/high temp.

Engine clutch mess


Check your kick stand sensor if it's unplugged then there is your problem. If it's still plugged in then the sensor might be gone. The sensor shuts the bike down if you try to take off when the kick stand is down. you can bypass the sensor by jumping the two wires before the sensor with a piece of wire connecting the two leads together. doing so will allow the bike to be put into gear with the kick stand down so always check it so you won't have an accident. good luck and get out ridding!

Coolant Leak


engine coolant leaked from the left side of my bike. I had to actually speed home to keep the temps below critical. When I arrived home there was no more coolant in the reservior. I removed the fairings and put coolant just above the min mark and went out for a ride to test temperatures stayed low and no leaks. I stopped and let the bike get over 200 degrees and I still could not find a leak. My engine coolant was originally on the minimum mark when I had the leak, so i feel confident it wasn't because I had too much coolant. ,There was nothing about having a leak and then not happening again after 5,000 miles of riding.
