Question about Motorcycles
If the motor is lean (not getting enough fuel) It will cause it to build heat. If you put a larger main jet in the bike it will run cooler.

Try a fuel additive to clean the system, also if the airfilter is dirty or damp, this can cause problems.
You may even have a rust problem in the barrels.
Or even the engine oil may have thickened causing a resistance in the crank bearings, so flush the engines oil ways if other solutions don't work.

Have you checked the oil level? If when the motor is cold it is not in the middle of the stick then you have too much oil and that's why it's overflowing.
Take it back to the dealer and have them drain the oil and refill.

hi mate try not to use fully synthetic oil use semi synthetic and if its clutch slipping you will tell because when you put it in 1st gear it will jump forward or move a little bit but if not then your clutch is perfect also check chain tension if to tight will cause clunking good luck buddy :)

It comes on every time the oil pressure falls below a preset level. If you are running out of oil (because the level is low), then 1) shame on you for not checking the oil level frequently! It's not like you have to lift the hood, or anything hard like that, and 2) don't drive it at all until you get some oil in there!
If you have plenty of oil, then you could have a stuck oil pressure relief valve, a blocked oil pickup, a worn out oil pump, an unbelievably clogged oil filter, or an internal oil leak (from a crack, or something coming loose).
In a water cooled car, the water only does 60% of the cooling. Another 20% is by aire passing over the engine surface, and the rest is carried to the oil sump to be cooled by air passing over the pan. Motorcycles have highly finned oil sumps for a reason: They shed a lot of heat through the oil. If you are low on oil, you will be low on cooling, too.
If you fill up with oil, but you still overheat, you probably have an excessively lean fuel mixture. If that is the case, and you let that continue, this bike won't last very long.
I just checked and found that this is a water cooled engine. So yes, you probably need coolant -- check into that right away. If the water pump gets dry even for a split second, the seals (lacking the lubrication that the water provides) will be destroyed -- it happens instantly.
