You should be more specific to the circumstances of it overheating. Im sure it would help people out alot. Were you on the track, or just sitting in heavy traffic or what? How fast were you going when you noticed?my bike overheated today it reached 244 degrees F! fans not turning on! anybody knows if that tempeture will cause head gaskets to melt or cause engine damage? also any troble shoots on how to see whats the problem?
My bike heats up pretty high all the time (when I sit in traffic) to but I have 17,XXX miles on mine. I figure it would be my thermo or pump. IMO your fan really has no job if your on the highway! Check for leaks! check coolant level, could be an air bubble!
well since you screwed yourself there,Well let me just say this bike has hit the ground like everyday! its a stunt bike the engine was cracked, and i welded the block and its working like a charm, but with this last droped the bike is overheating, So i have to fix it up my self because there is no sush thing as warantie for me....
My best advice. get the shop manual. Your bike is going to take a beating cause of what you're doing with it. So, this isn't going to be the only thing you'll ever need to fix it. It's $60 and goes step by step and includes pics of everything to check the pump. (everything on your bike for that matter)
Redneck way of checking. Pull off all the hoses that connect to the water pump. Start the bike, ( it will run for a little while w/o water before overheating) Pour water in one of the holes and if water shoots out another one... it's pumping.
dude- just start with burping your system and making sure it's topped off. then, go from there. the air could've been created during one of your drops. also, make sure nothing is restricting your fan's propellars like a heat shield or if it's rubbing against your valve cover or something. it may be trying to spin, but something is blocking it.
BTW, dropping an '08 cbr600rr everyday is really sad to hear. why not get an older, less technologically advanced, less EXPENSIVE bike to beat on?
well it has gone to the ground 3 times hard. usually the drops i get are just fairing damage! and i have a spray painted ghetto fairing to drop it. but this time my amvition was grater than my skills i learned that quick!
reasson this is a stunt bike is that i crashed this bike hard while riding, for being a noob and now I rather stunt than go fast were everybody is out there to kill you.... at least for now besides my block is welded so I am scared that my engine will crack again trowing a bunch of oil to my wheel and kill myself.
