Trouble with overheating...
Having a continuing problem with my cooling sytem. The bike runs very hot, gauge shows the needle close to the white line before it hits the red zone but always stays there or right below. When I do turn off the engine, I get an overflow of coolant on the ground. I can hear the coolant bubbling inside the expansion reservoir, I can't believe this is proper. I've flushed the radiator, installed a new stock thermostat and replaced the radiator to reservoir line in case there might have been a leak at some point. I've followed Clymers directions on filling and bleeding the system but I'm not 100% sure that there is not air still in the system. I've read over the notes in the Verses but there isn't much help there as far as step by step or pointers.
After searching the forum I am guessing the problem stems from one of the following...
1. Air still in the system
2. A bad Radiator cap (someone suggested this might be a problem in a post somewhere)
3. A dirty/corroded passage somewhere
Please offer any advice and pointers, any suggestions, opinions or past experience would be greatly appreciated.
