Question about 2000 Triumph Sprint ST
Bike fellover then the engine developed overheating problem
Sounds like an airlock. When it fell over an air bubble would've gone to the highest point of the cooling system, & when you picked it back up the air gets trapped, if it gets trapped near the thermostat it will send the computer a false reading & fans wont turn on causing an overheat. Give the cooling system a flush. Remove lowest cooling system hose you can find I think its the water pump hose, & remove the radiator cap all the coolant will drain. Put your garden hose in the radiator turn it on & start your bike, run the hose through it for about ten minutes or untill the water coming out of the hose you removed runs clear then shut the bike off. Put the water pump hose back on, clamp it up, & fill the radiator 50/50 water/glycol. Leave the radiator cap off start the bike & get it to normal operating temperature, as it warms up air will rise to the radiator cap & the coolant level will drop just top it up accordingly. Once the bikes warmed up & bubbles stop rising, put the cap back on & take it for a ride. Hope this helps!
