So I bought my 06 CBR600RR a couple weeks back, he said it had a bad stator, replaced it and it was good to go after that. I then went to change the oil, yes, I was that guy that put a hole in the oil cooler... I bought a new one and installed it. After doing that I put more coolant in the radiator and reserve tank to top it off and topped off my oil. The next day I went riding and the bike overheated, I was on the highway and it was like 90 in hawaii and sunny, the fan kicked on at 220 but the temp kept rising, i was able to get some speed for the air to go through the ducts but the temp kept rising until it hit 250, i turned it off and was able to get it home using the stop and wait for it to cool down below 200 method. After getting home and the bike cooling off i took off the radiator cap and there was white goo, when i topped off the coolant prior to, it was fine, now it has that stuff everywhere. I tried flushing it with water and vinegar and was able to get most of it out but there is still a lot, I don't know what caused that. The bike was fine before i replaced the oil cooler, then afterwards it was overheating and clogged my cooling system with that gunk. Any ideas as to what this could be and how to fix it? Attached is my radiator cap with all that gunk on it.
