SOURCE: Overheating

Well you need to verify the stuff already mentioned. Sparkplug, and coil etc.
The problem is likely the the coil and just needs to be replaced.
If the plug show signs of lean mix, it could have been that way for a long time (big headache).
If you just got the bike you need to kown something about troubleshooting to isolate the issue.
Makesure the oil is up. - too low could lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure the oilpump is working.- no pump means no oil moving will lead to a scrapped engine.
Makesure you have the correct oil by doing an oil change. - bad, wrong, really old oil could mess the filter(clogged). Check filter for grit, metal, cream - if I have to explain why... then you need to give up trying to fix it yourself and pay/pay/pay for someone who has the skills to fix it for you.

If you must do it yourself, buy the Clymer manual and read.
Search the net and learn.
Get a friend to help show you how to troubleshoot the issue and fix it.

Good Luck!

Running well at high revs would indicate that all the fuel and air it needs are getting to the engine and you also have a good spark. Probably no problem with air and fuel filter ( if fitted) or sparkplugs.

Running hot, and bad idling are signs of a lean air fuel mixture. The engine is probably not getting enough fuel at low revs.

This could be caused by an air leak between the carburettors and the engine. Check that the vacuum line to the fuel tap is properly secured at both ends. It is behind the fuel line at the tap.

Get a a short length of hollow plastic tube and use it like a stethascope - put one end to your ear and move the other end around your carburettor mounts with your engine revs as low as you can get, and listen for any sucking noises that would indicate a leak. Look for cracks in the rubber inlets.

The other possibility is that there is an internal blockage in the idling jets or idling fuel circuit. This is where dirt tends to lodge because the jet dimensions and passageways are very fine - The high speed jets are much bigger and dirt often just passes straight through.

Try a little bit of choke while the engine is warm to see if you get a stronger low speed response. If so that would point to an internal blockage.

SOURCE: overheat light comes on when sitting at light or in traffic

If you are not boiling the fluid out and it is not overheating I am thinking that it is a faulty sending unit. Another possible problem is the thermostat. It may be sticking in the closed position for an instant causing the sensor to come into play to early.Hope some of this will be fo help. donnyb60

SOURCE: 2001 sm610s i cant get neutrel when engine is running

Try raising the front of the shift pedal one or two notches on the shift shaft. Chances are because of the current height of the shift lever your shoe lifts the lever too far thus going right past neutral.

I hope this can be rated as a "FixYa" Thanks!

Engine overheating


What model/type is your bike?
Is it water or air cooled?
Does it have a cooling fan?
Does it overheat when in motion or only in very slow traffic?
What indication do you have that it's overheating?

The solution will depend on the answer to these questions.

Overheating in traffice


sounds like your cooling fan isn't working at high speed the air will cool the engine but when your at low speeds there isn't enough air to do so so i would check your cooling fan that is more than likely your problem hope this helps.

I can turn on the tv and it's fine for about 20 min then the screen goes black with sound. I turn it off for a minute and it's fine for another 20 min. Like it's overheating.


It might also be a bad solder connection, short of checking voltages what I have done in this type of situation is with back off use a small fairly high speed fan - a hair dryer set to cool works, to cool areas of the boards inside to localize which board is causing this, with the set in failure, got it? it goes out cool it with a handheld hair dryer with air set to cool, when you find the spot where the problem is it will either instantly come back or try to.

Do it a few times to confirm which board is bad and locate a replacement board and swap it out.

Temp gauge goes way up to the danger zone, but not quite overheating, if I don't have the A/C on. Checked coolant level, it is fine. When driving it rises, when idling in goes to normal.


Possible wiring from sensor ( need to verify it is overheating, with Thermal Gun or probe) if it is overheating, check Fan operation and possible radiator restriction ?

Bike starts and runs but when it warms up (running for about 20 30 minutes) it won't start back up until it cools down...and it's not running hot...can you please assist me


Overheating. The raditor coolant or the cooling fan is'nt working corectly the engine should be as hot as it's going to get in 5 minutes then the therostae opens to start keeping it at the same temperture if the coolant or the fan can't keepit at this temperture it'll not restsate till it's cool enough to be in the safe range agin. Some times not changind the oil often enough can case this problem too low coolant and the fan not working all can cause this after finding the coolant system problem and fixing it change the oil as it'll be ruiened from the overheat. Low speed hotrodding and stop and go traffic can trash the oil and just a few hot runs acan make it need and oil change as the oil fails at high tempertures and the oil is an important part of the cooling system as it's cooler beng clean and in the air flow. As the oil cooler doesn't have the benifit of a fan sitting running and hotrodding at low speeds will heat and kill the oil then after the oils killed then it'll overheat case the oils bad.

Hello and welcome, it sounds like you need to replace your fan clutch. Your Jeep has 2 cooling fans 1 runs off the engine the other is electric. Before replacing the fan clutch you need to make sure the electric cooling fan is working just turn on your a/c and it should kick on. If it does then the problem is your fan clutch is it doesn't then your electric fan is most likely bad.

Overheating on local streets only but fine on highway


check rad fan to see if its comming on or is wore out and running slow your bike overheats in traffic because theres not enough air flow to cool the water flowing in the radiator like at highway speeds
