Question about 2006 kawasaki KX 450 F

Open Question

I road my kx450 last weekend on a long trail ride. It over heated and coolant came out of the overflow tube. When I got home I put more fluid in it and started it up. It was difficult to start. It started to drip water it appeared to come from a very small hole located just beneath the water pump housing.The hole is so small that I was able to slide a straw from the carburetor spray in it and it fit perfectly. Do you know what this hole is for and why would coolant come out of it? I was thinking to put silicon sealant in there, do you think it is a good idea?

SOURCE: Fuel pouring out of overflow tube

Yes, it sounds EXACTLY like a stuck float. You may be able to fix it yourself depending on how accessable the offending carburetor is. Quite often you can free up a stuck float by setting up a bit of vibration. Give this a try > tap the side of the carb repeatedly using the plasitc end of a screwdriver. You are not looking to hammer the thing to death, just create minor shocks. The shocks / vibration will often free up a stuck float. Please rate this solution and let me know if all went well.

There are two seals on the impeller pump. Replace the seals an the leak is stopped. Put in a new cover gasket as well.

SOURCE: 03 zx6r overheating

1. I have an 02 and just normal riding temp for me is 170-188. 2. Yes that is possible you can get a toggle switch from any auto part store and rewire the fan so you can turn it on when you want. Thats what I did and I turn mine on around 175 just to be safe. 3.Yes you would be able to see it through the oil window.

SOURCE: kawasaki kx250f seems to be overheating sat idle

from past expierence with these little gems blown head gaskets dont usualy show with water in the oil rather the other way around thats right if the head gasket is blown your more likely to notice a discolouration in the coolant also the spark plug will foul wich is why it will not idle .regarding the over heating I'm assumeing you have bought this machine second hand If that is the case do you know how long it has been since it had a full service from the way you describe the oil Im guessing its been a while so before you go pulling any thing apart drop the oil replace the oil filter flush the cooling system at this point while the system is dry I would remove strip & clean the coolant pump sory did I mention that the coolant drain plug is located at the bottom of the pump I have encounterd torn seals in these pumps before checking these things may save you the headache of pulling the head of.

Over heating and dumping coolant out overflow?


Hi Gambler904, and the usual suspects are:
1. Insufficient oil supply, or oil not circulating.
2. Insufficient air flow over the engine.
3. Heavy carbon deposits.
4. Ignition timing retarded due to faulty MAP, CKP, and/or CMP sensors.
5. Leaking intake or exhaust valve.

Your overflow tank works on suction to return coolant to the radiator. Check the line and nipple ends for any cracking (cracking on the plastic radiator nippl is very commom). The radiator nipple is not under high prrssure like the fluid under the cap (inside the coolant system). It's on the otherside of the cap and will never "stream or gush" coolant (uless you are over heating badly). As the coolant in the radiator cools it creates a vacuum and draws coolant back from the overflow throgh a small hose. You might not see any leaks as coolant heats up and travels to the overflow. It might be a very small leak and you are usaully driving around and drying up before you see it. Even with a very small crack it will only draw in air and not liquid (as liquid is way heavier than air). Also, I've seen where people have taken out (or fallen out) the tube attached to the overflow cap that goes down deep into the overflow tank. That tube should be long enough to almost reach the bottom of the tank. It's hard to know if something is missing if you do not know it was suppose to be there in th first place but it needs to be there.

i"ve never heard of engine overflow tubes...but bikes do have overflow tubes from the coolant tanks. Coolant should not overflow from the tank unless under extreme heat conditions.eg: idling for long periods and constant stop and go traffic. If your bikes coolant system hasn't been serviced in the last two years you might want to do that. also i would change out thermostat and also make sure that your fan is turning on..if its overflowing the fan should be on because the thermostat sends a signal to turn the fan on.

My 2001 yz 426f boils/blows out radiator overflow hose


The older YZF's radiators were a tad small so they would overheat when sitting still. Even the newer ones will do this if sitting still for too long as there is no air flow across the radiators to dissapate the heat.

The overheating problem is more severe on the older bikes. The best bet is to make sure you avoid sitting still for too long. I know it's not much of a solution, but it's just the way it is with the older YZFs.

Air bubble in coolant.


Replace the thermostat. That is the only cause of the bubbles.

2004 impala coolant level


The coolant container (called the overflow reservoir) will be marked as to what constitutes MIN and MAX levels that should be in it. If it's low, add coolant.

As for what temperature it should run at, the gauge on the dash is just a general indication, but usually it runs close to the middle of the gauge's range.
