How could I be sure? Does not sound like that. There is something on the van that looks like dried coolant though.

I tried to get a new one but no luck so far. Guess i will have to wait until I am in San Diego. It got so hot that the warning light came up, even twice today. And it was not even very warm, I was not standing too much in Fresno.
Lateron the engine kind of stalled (once as if the clutch slipped) maybe twice.
Some days ago it happened at least 3 times that the engine hesitated as if it did not get gas (or no ignition). Could that be because of the battery? Or fuel pump? Or water in the tank? Fuel filter? Maybe time for seafoam?

Make sure the battery connections are tight/solid. That has been known to cause some weird issues. Replace the radiator cap. (Its a cheap part anyway and I believe most Motorcycle radiator caps are going to be the same size/pressure.

Hi Alberto,
I cannot answer the question, but maybe you should post that as an own thread.
Cheers Tobias

solved

the radiator cap was bad, the thermo sensor did not work properly so the fan did not kick in when it should.
Replaced both, big service, new battery. Not cheep but better than to get stuck in the dessert.
Still: there are vibrations (a grinding, as if something was not properly tightened or a shaft bent...?) that I can feel, especially when accelerating. It disappears when I pull the clutch or am in neutral...
Any ideas???

????

The vibrations disappear when I am in neutral, pull the clutch or take off the luggage.
If it was something with the chain, sprockets, shaft, tire...it would not disappear when I pull the clutch, right?
Or could it be that pulling the clutch takes away the stress from anything in the transmission (maybe a bent shaft?remember that the chain came off-masterlink opened up at high speed)
Could it be anything with the clutch? It slips sometimes in first gear when I want to take off and the engine is cold...
