    Over heating

    Hi guys

    Hope everyone is good.

    Looking for some help and assistance if possible.

    After a short ride today, Route 59 cafe near Skipton, then to Ilkley and back home, getting stuck in some traffic, however I noticed the temp was rasing very quickly, and at one point even flashed up, "warning coolant temp very high" or similar with the red warning light.

    When I got home only 2min after that came up, stopped and turned off, and bike decided to dump a load of coolant,.

    I have checked levels since cooled, and it's just about near the min level.

    Since cooled down I started the bike up again, let it get warm, and watch the temp rise to 2 bar below the top (I belive when fans are due to kick in) however nothing no fans and still temp rising.

    Unfortunately not had chance to check fuses, as day light was gone.

    Any ideas

    Unfortunately it won't let me upload the video

    If you have been in retentions with vehicles, it is very normal for the temperature to rise. In that case the fans should start.

    When I got home and started it up again, they should have started too.

    It is clear that something is wrong, you must look at the number 3 20A fuse in the second box.

    Do not put fuses of more or less amps, respect the 20A amps
    Only motorcyclists know why dogs stick their head out the car window.

    Apart from the Fuse, it could also be a faulty Relay, or Thermostat.

    Cheers guys,

    I'm. Going to check the fuse in the morning as not had chance today.

    But if that's fine, do yoy know which relay maybe and how to test thermostat at all.

    If it is thermostat, then at fowlers there only 15 so not too bad tho would prefer just the fuse lol

    If you find the Fuse to be blown ( and might be worth checking even if it isn't )
    there's a previous report from at least one other Member that had a SEIZED Fan -
    which caused the Fuse to blow, and therefore also prevented the "good" fan from running.

    The Fan wiring and plug/socket connectors for each fan
    can be accessed by removing the Left Fairing panel.

    Thanks again guys,

    I have checked this morning, and yes the fuse had blown, so have replaced with the spare that was there.

    The right hand fan is fine, but the one on the left has partially siezed, it does move, but not 100%.

    So not sure if to replace fan what do you think.

    Cheers
