Termperature of TE610

I have the Trail Tech Vapor speedo with the coolant temp sensor installed in the cold water outlet of the right side radiator ('07 carbed). When I let it idle for a long time in the driveway (thus minimal temp diff between inlet and outlet temps), the fan runs when I see it get to around 200-208F and off less than 190F. I tried a thermo pistol thingy and it measured close to the same. Of course running down the road I see outlet temps from 130 to 190 depending on speed and ambient. I set my warning trigger at 210 and danger trigger at 220.

Typically you would open a coolant outlet and try to "burp" it out by forcing coolant in until it comes out of the open connection. Some cooling systems actually have a port, screw usually, that you open to get the air out when refilling. What i am going to do is what jonxx described below, since thats really the only way to make sure.

None of the three bikes that we had tore down that day have ran hot, that I know of (including mine).
That's what I was planning on doing today when I trouble shoot it some more.

Less than 2000 miles. So now I am on the hunt for a new cable. What do you guys think for a replacement? I saw somewhere there were a few guys putting the barnetts on with good results, and I also saw where there were some guys doing a few mods and getting another stock one. Any suggestions?

Thanks guys.

Lower end adjustments.

Top end adjustments.


With pics.

I'd also check Motion Pro. They make custom-length cables, and might be a little less expensive than Barnett.

I drained it by opening the drain port by the header and flushed it with water. Then I poured Engine Ice in until I saw it come out the drain hole.

And they sold the new cable to me for 45$ + 10$ shipping and it will be to my door by Friday. Most of the local places wanted 56$-65$ for the cable plus shipping on top of that.

So if any of you guys Need a cable and want the Barnett here is their number. 1-805-642-9435

Thanks,
Mark

I just got my Barnett cable today... very nice, very robust. The coated cable looks promising, and the ferrule on the end of the housing looks like it will fit the lever better.

I hope they improved the design from 3 years ago - mine broke at the lever in 1000 miles - they "fixed" it for free - but it broke again in the same spot a 1000 miles later - went back to the OEM cable.

Thanks for the info, I will order a Ballistic EV02 tonight

I didn't have good luck with the MoPro cable. The barrel was way too small to fit in the recess at the lever.
