Hi I'm stephen adams from capetown south Africa I have a gsr750 2014 suzuki motorcycle I still have the pre mix coolant in the bike can I use tap water to top up the reservoir


Hi, Stephen tap water "NO" distilled water "YES" tap water has minerals and such that are not cooling system friendly also check your owners manual for service intervals for changing your coolant like everything else liquid it looses it's ability to do its job over a period of time and your engine will run hotter. Good luck and have a nice day.

Cooling system


The KTM sx is a full race bike - the radiators do not have fans to keep the bike cool when not moving - the bike must be moving to keep the air passing through the radiators to keep the engine cool - if you have the bike standing still there is no air moving through the radiator - hence why it over heats - tip start the bike after you are fully kitted up for your ride - let it warm up for around a min tops then ride - if you have to stop for a period of time when riding turn the bike off - I have the same issues of over heating if not moving on my VOR 530 - I do as described above and have no issues at all with over heating when riding. good luck

My 2005 Suzuki SV1000s wont cool, It gets to 220 temp before the fan kicks on, Plus I have this knok when the motor gets warm? Any clue what I need to do ?


You need to attend to this right away, Knocks usually indicate damage is happening. Be sure to use premium fuel with NO alcohol.
Service your cooling system ASAP, flush, fill your cooling system, change your oil-if it's getting up there in mileage a quality synthetic will make any engine run cooler. Check or have your timing checked, too far advanced or the other (can't use the "r" word on fixya) can contribute to over heating, and make double sure you're running the correct spark plug heat range. Best of luck to you

After about 100 miles or so my header tank slowly fills with water,i can **** it out of the header tank back to the max then put it back in the rad, so the rad is full and the header tank is at max,with...


G'day.
I guess your wondering what is going on- no loss of coolant but it's moving from the radiator to the catch tank.You put it back in the radiator & back it goes to the catch tank again- seems like somthings wrong but the answer is simple really.
As your bike warms up,the cooant in the radiator expands with the heat & moves excess to the catch tank.
Then the water contracts when the bike cools down & some of the coolant is now in the catch tank & the radiator a bit low.
So what to do.
Run it & this time don't put the excess back in the radiator.
Set the catch tank to max & then just moniter whats going on from there.
It's normal for the radiator to be down just that bit when cold to allow for the water expansion when it gets hot.
If the radiator gets too low ,coolant will be drawn out of the catch tank to fill it up.
This is called a coolant recovery system & is commonly fitted to liquid cooled bikes.
The part to check is the radiator cap.
You will see two rubber parts on the under side of the cap.
One black rubber on a spring & the other seal just under the lip of the cap.Check that these are not damaged.
If either is split replace the radiator cap.
I hope this has been of some help.
Kind regards Andrew Porrelli

How to check and add coolant to a 2003 Suzuki SV1000S


You have a cap on the radiator and an expansion tank hiding in there somewhere. I would check them both. Your coolant should be fine, may need just a little filling. Unless you are cooking something. My bike is a 02 and I have not had to even check the coolant. Also, if you have a water temp gauge that reads in degrees and not a light, the temp of the bike should relate to the air temp, while running, not city, If it says, 185, the outside air is 85, If it reads 192, outside air is 92, etc. . Check it out.

How do i check coolant in 97 xv 250


The XV250 doesn't have any coolant. It isn't liquid cooled it's an air cooled V-twin.

Over heating triumph sprite motor cycle 955cc


Sounds like an airlock. When it fell over an air bubble would've gone to the highest point of the cooling system, & when you picked it back up the air gets trapped, if it gets trapped near the thermostat it will send the computer a false reading & fans wont turn on causing an overheat. Give the cooling system a flush. Remove lowest cooling system hose you can find I think its the water pump hose, & remove the radiator cap all the coolant will drain. Put your garden hose in the radiator turn it on & start your bike, run the hose through it for about ten minutes or untill the water coming out of the hose you removed runs clear then shut the bike off. Put the water pump hose back on, clamp it up, & fill the radiator 50/50 water/glycol. Leave the radiator cap off start the bike & get it to normal operating temperature, as it warms up air will rise to the radiator cap & the coolant level will drop just top it up accordingly. Once the bikes warmed up & bubbles stop rising,  put the cap back on & take it for a ride. Hope this helps!
