Erratic water gauge on kymco xciting 300 ri
Hi apexmt; You are right to question it's behaviour.. Somthing is wrong.It should get to normal operating temp. as soon as posible, and stay there. It's piston will not get to the correct size and shape till that happens. It seems (from a remote view point) that it's thermostat is a bit sticky. May I suggest that you have it replaced as a matter of urgency; as : "if the engine is too cold, it WILL WEAR OUT in no time at all". .And ..if the thermostat sticks in the closed position.. it will cook the engine. I do not know your machine ... yet, If you feel competent..... find its radiator...the top hose will more than likely lead you to its thermostat housing. Do this cold. Drain the coolant system. remove the housing and replace the thermostat. Do NOT put its radiator cap back on until it's reached operating temp.The top hose will get hot as the thermostat starts to open. So You Know for sure that it is full of the green coolant.
