Question about Suzuki GSX-R 600 Motorcycles
First, are you boiling over? If not suspect a bad temp sender giving false information. If you are boiling over, is there a secondary air bleeding point near the head that is causing the rise in temperature. If so burp the air out. If the sender is good and there is no air in the system , have you tried a coolant modifier like "ICE" to see if you can cool more efficiently. Worst case scenario, you have a hairline head gasket leak pushing hot combustion gas into your coolant (should see discoloration in the anti-freeze). This would push anti-freeze into the over flow bottle and cause an air pocket that would raise the engine temperature by creating steam. Often you will see anti-freeze discoloration on the spark plug of the affected cylinder if this is happening. In this case you will have to replace the head gasket. The fact that you say both the light and the gauge read hot leads me to think it is the sender. Hook the sender to an ohm meter, place it in pan on the stove in water, turn the stove on high, and monitor at what temperature the switch activates using a candy thermometer. As always start with the cheapest options first and work your way up. Hope this helps.
