Question about 2005 Triumph Daytona 650
Nothing than to flush the radiator and replace coolant, bike has been parked for sometimes now though i got it second handed from prevoius owner and nigeria is usually hot a country
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

it sounds like some dirt has got into the injectors. these will need to be cleaned out. if you can keep trying it and give it some high revs this may run it through. hope this helps.
