Anyone have any trouble with coolant backing up into the reservoir then spitting out of the overflow . Have 700 miles on my bike and it's been at the shop 3 times already .

Not so far at 400 miles. Rode the bike in 90-95F degree heat in single track this past weekend with several fast and slow sections where the fans came on, and several stops in traffic on the way back. How/where are you riding the bike when this occurs? Are the fans coming on/off okay?

It would do it just cruising back roads not even riding hard . First time they replaced the thermo switch but fans were kicking on fine , second time they changed the radiator cap . Now I'm hoping to just get a new bike . Was doing good after the second time getting it back until about 80 miles and the coolant was about a inch over the max mark on the res then puked out more than it ever did before

No problems here with over 4000 miles, and sometimes really warm on single track sections too. But do you fill the reservoir to full? Coolant is suppose back up into the reservoir but if the reservoir is overflowing them it must be too full. If it ain't over heating then lower the reservoir level. (But Steve probably went through this with you already)

I haven't added any , I'm letting them deal with it since it's a new bike . First time he said it was pretty low . Also leaking from the tube at the 90 from the res . Theyre going to do whatever they have to to correct it just wondered if this was a common problem , love the bike besides this lol

Hope you get everything sorted. My 14 690 appears to slowly loose coolant. We will see. The res tank was looking a lil low at 1200km's. I looked in the radiator and It was around 4 inches low. Shop filled it up and now at 2500km's res looks a lil low again. Radiator looks a couple inches low on kickstand. Looks like I have a lil leak from the 90degree tube off the res tank.

Update us if you find a solution to your problem.

90 degree tube

I have a small leak here too. Very minimal maybe a couple drops each ride from where the tube connection is right on top of rad. Thought about maybe re routing the hose not sure yet.
