and no chance of buying new stuff for at least 1 more week.
all the info i can get is more than wellcome
thak you guys
Do the rads get hot to the touch when the bike has been running for a bit? This would indicate that there is indeed coolant flowing through them, and the thermostat is most likely not stuck shut (or at least not completely).
When you say the bike is overheating, is it puking coolant out the overflow? Or is the temp light coming on? You had wired a fan, right? Is it still working?
Hope you can get this sorted.
