Air in Coolant???
Thanks, guys, for the suggestions.
This idea about air in cooling system intrigues me. Maybe I need to know more.
The bike is new--2004 model, bought last April 2005--about 12,000 miles (all of them mine).
Oil is syn--no dino juice ever in it except for break-in. Kept topped and changed every 3,000 - 5,000 miles. Always new filter.
I pulled the stator--inside the engine is pristine clean--*no* carbon deposits in engine, nor coking on stator. (Stator is shorted, but no carbon buildup on it.)
So none of those things should be the problem.
But air in coolant? How does air get into the cooling system? Where is it at? More important, how do we get it out????
