For the past 2 weeks, my bike has been HARD to start. When you hit the button, it goes rar, rar, raar, raar, and then it will finally start. Sometimes on a couple tries, sometimes it takes 5 minutes of trying. My neutral switch was smashed and leaking oil for the whole summer, so I finally got the parts and swapped it out tonight, thinking maybe that was the culprit. I changed the oil too while I did that.
Didn't fix my starting problem.
I finally got it started and decided to let it run in neutral in the garage for about 15-20 minutes.
Well I go outside and it's BURNING hot, almost to the max temp, and "smoking" everywhere. I think it was steam maybe. Didn't stink too terrible. There was fluid coming out the little tube that comes out the bottom of the bike. WHen I turned it off I could hear the fluids inside bubbling. Yikes.
Not sure if the radiator fan didn't come on or something? or what. I'm at a loss.
I'm trying to get the darn thing in normal working order so I can sell it but keep getting blocked.
