Is it getting too hot to run properly? Most air-cooled motors run plenty hot compared to their water cooled counterparts.

If you think the bike is running too hot because of running issues I would check the usual suspects. Timing, spark, fuel.

You will need a timing light and a clymer or factory manual if you got one with the bike. The spark plug just needs checking to see if its worn down causing its own issues with timing *(with the side benefit of seeing if the bike is running too lean. A bone white spark plug electrode tip cover=too lean)

This is to say that bad timing, widened/worn spark plug or lean fuel mix can all cause a bike to run hotter than normal. But they all usually come along with driveability issues as well.

So....check it careful....and good luck!

Does the fuel filter get hot while running

It's just gas passing through it. Only thing would make it hot is if it was near a hot exhaust, or a hot engine if located in the engine compartment.

Why does the exhaust get very hot

The exhaust on every single gas engine from lawn mowers to weed whackers gets scorching hot. It is the outlet for the hot gases being ignited inside the engine, after only several minutes of use the exhaust will become too hot to touch.

Check to see if there two fans behind the radiator. If only one is operating when the a/c is on the engine will run hot. A sensor wire may have been disconnected and the second fan is not receiveing the signal to run.

Radiator problems

it may be a little off, but the lower water hose seldom gets very hot,, as its this hose that suplyes the engine with ""cold water"" the hot water comes out the top hose,, drains down the rad and cools on the way down then enters the engine through the bottom hose """if your engine stayes running in the normal place on the gage,,,and not over heating""" why are you spending money for nothing???""
you wont get the bottom hose to run hot unless the engine is cooking

Car won't run when hot

It could be neither, If your engine is getting too hot, it can be in the cooling system, like the water pump, radiator, belt and the like, or engine timing may be off, and so forth. You even may have low coolant or a head gasket problem or cracked head, depending on the diagnostics. Just changing the spark plugs by themselves will not make the engine run hot, and while you can have ign module, etc failure when the engine is at normal operating temperatures, they by themselves should not make the engine run hot. Hope this helps you, Rick
