It should sit around half, may get to 3\4 on a hot day riding hard, but should not get to light on stage.
Check the fan comes on when it gets hot
Check cap or renew
Check thermostat or renew
Change coolant\flush radiator
Check for leaks
pressure test coolant system

it may even be a problem with the sender for the temp gauge, if it doesnt seem hot and the fan doesnt start

Temp gauge stays cold


If the thermostat is bad (i.e. stuck open at all times), this would allow coolant to circulate in the engine even when it is below the desired operating temperature. This leads to OVERcooling of the engine. You can either replace the thermostat as a first step or remove it and test it -- closed when cold, open when heated above 190-200F.

01 yamaha r1 overheating at idle on hot day, but fans are working?


Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. Air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.

Battery light & brake light flashes on & off. went to parts store & had battry & charging system checked. was told battery was bad , bought new one .problem still there not as bad...


You need to get a volt meter on it. Your battery should be around high 12 to 13 volts while not running, and increase a little without going over 14 1/2 volts running.

Engine temp guage runs half way while riding


That sounds ok, it would be more of a problem if it went over half sometimes. The only other things that may make it flucuate could be a sticky thermostat or an air lock somewhere in the hoses, but these generally cause overheating. At half way it is not overheating.

Temp guage runs half way


Does it remain between 3 and 4 all the time not higher? If yes, then you can say it is normal as long it remain about half way distance between "c" and "h" indicators. Good enough?

When idle all is well


yes buddy this will happen because as you ride air passes through the radiator cooling it down but when your on stand still it will rise as rs125s dont have fans on the radiator just make sure there is coolant in the tank underneith the tank if it starts to act differently get back to me

Whilst riding at long periods at high speed my bike just shut down and didnt seem to have compression once i went to kick start it again.yz 125


It sounds like you cooked her. If you are jetted lean, and run it wide open for a long period of time, it melts the ring to the piston.
Do a compression test, remove spark plug, thread in gauge, and hold throttle wide open and kick untill the guage stops climbing (Around ten or so) Less than 100 psi is bad.

1999 Toyota Camry Idle Problems on Hot days


Clean the IAC. Disconnect throttle body air hose and you will see a hole on the bottom of the throttle body just before the butterfly valve. Spray throttle body cleaner down the IAC hole and then let it soak about 1/2 hour. Reconnect hose and run engine about a minute and then repeat this process 2 or more times. Toyota engines from 1997-2005 commonly have the IAC get cruded up with carbon as early as 35,000 miles. This is a sImple and cheap repair that many repair shops don't want you to know.
