Sounds like you might have a crook head gasket there Kay
I would take it to a reputable dealer and ask for a compression test.
It might show a leak even though there is no loss of performance according to you. This is the first thing I would try.
Hope this helps you there.

Sounds to me that your battery my be slight low on charge, try charging it up. Running the bike with a low battery can cause havoc with the stator as well as the pulse coil, those are two things you don't want to be replacing.
Hopefully this helps you out.

The fan will run sometimes after you have shut off the engine. It does this to finish the cool down cycle. Yes the thermostat could be faulty did you experience the overheating before you changed the coolant or is this something that has happened after changing the coolant? With that in mind did you change/replace the coolant with an automotive type or the coolant meant for your motorcycle?
If you have replaced the coolant with automotive type I'd say that was your problem all coolants are not the same automotive types can actually jell in a motorcycle cooling system restricting any coolant flow. IF you have the correct coolant take a look at the fins in the rad, make sure they aren't full of bugs, mud or other road debris. I had a plastic bag get caught up in my rad what a mess getting that out of there. Anyway if all is clear your possibilities are as you say thermostat, rad cap or water pump. If the bike drips a little coolant or looses coolant then you have a water pump problem but normally there will be a wee drip or puddle under the pump after sitting and cooling down another thing and I don't want to alarm you is a leaking head gasket. If the head gasket is leaking you sometimes can see foam bubbles in the coolant when it running and the rad cap is off. Or it can show up in the oil or spark plugs. also if the head is leaking it'll turn the coolant a nasty looking dirty color that can look like melted butterscotch ice cream. There is a few things to look for. hope this was a help

SOURCE: Just replaced temp sender unit

Hi, why did you change the sender in the first instance? If you mean the water is pushing past the radiator cap when the engine is hot, and suspect the head gasket is the cause of the water pressurising the system, run the bike with 1 plug removed if the cooling system is getting pressurised from a leaking gasket, then with the plug removed no pressure will be forced into the system from that cylinder and the water should not push past the radiator cap, try this on all cylinders one at a time to eliminate them, if the pressure does stop at any time then the head gasket COULD be at fault,you can buy a kit which measures water in th exhast system

Hi i have a daytona 955i on an 05 plate, it gets very hot quickly when in traffic, i understand this is normal for these bikes however when the fan kicks in at 104 it merely keeps the temp from going up...

What you are describing is absolutely normal. I wouldn't worry about it at all. you may find in cooler days the temp might come down a few degrees with the fan on, but on average to hot days it will stay high in traffic. Travelling on the open road you should find the temp ranges between 80 and 90 which will show that you thermostat is working ok ( opens at 82 degrees c )

1999 Triumph Daytona 955i My bike overheats when stationary for 5+ mins. The temperature rises to the redline then piddles out of the expansion tank.The fan does not kick in with the bike running, but...

Hi, Chris_goslin and the usual suspects are:
1. Engine oil level and SAE weight are too low or not circulating.
2. Insufficient or blocked air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy combustion chamber carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, or CMP sensor.
5. Carburetor jetted too lean.
6. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.
7. Water coolant old or low change every two years.
8. Water pump failure.
9. Radiator clogged, cap loose or malfunctioning.
10. Radiator fans not coming on.
11. Clutch slipping, brakes dragging, heavy load, towing a trailer etc.
12. Idling too long without moving.
13. For constant hot weather temperatures, mountain, or desert riding conditions consider adding an oil cooler and or cylinder head cooler.

My 2003 toyota sequoia temp goes up when outside temp is very hot.Mya.c will shut off then kick back on and repeat. After about 4 min the temp gauge goes up and heater kicks on .What could be causing this?

if both fans are working normally... you need to check radiators (both engine and A/C: start with the big one.. could be dirty blocking flow of coolant!)
good luck

I have a triumph daytona 650 speedometer problem

Sorry I don't have a solution, but I have a similar problem. At idle, I run about 14.2 volts and it stays that way up to around 5k, don't go higher in my garage. Anyway, my problem is when my fan kicks on. I have seen my volts drop into the low 10's when fan kicks on. If it is hot out and I am in dealing with lots of stop and go traffic, my fan will kick on a few times...normal so far. But, if this happens too many times without a good stretch of riding in between, my speedo will kick off or go to 188 on the gauge when the fan kicks on. As soon as I pull out the RPM's increase and all is well, but sometimes, I will actually loose my speedo all together. If I shut the bike off for a minute then start it back up, the speedo works fine. Any ideas???

Cooling fans on 1994 Caprice classic with 4.3 v8 not coming on. I have replaced the temp sensor on the water pump, temp sensor on the block, all relays, fuses are good, replaced the ecm (engine control...

On a vehicle this age, it is likely that the fans themselves have worn out. Test the fans by running battery power directly to the positive contact. If they start, they are OK. On 4.3 motors, there is also a seperate temp sensor to signal the fans, usually called a fan switch. I believe it operates independent of the ECM. Another possible culprit is a bad ground at the fans or even a loose or corroded negative battery cable.

Daytona 955i running hot

That is quite normal - these bikes run very hot and will typically reach temp where fan kicks in (103 deg C) while bike is sitting at idle, even if not particularly hot weather. Needs good airflow through the rad to keep the temp down. 
Fortunately, when fan comes on it lowers the temp quite quickly.
