Hello folks, need some insight. Recently did a coolant flush on my 08 600RR. As I was doing it, I left half way to run some errands. When I came back, ran my bike for 2 min and let is cool down for 45 mins realizing it hit 50 degrees. 2nd time I ran it again for 2 min, and it over heated to 80 degrees.

I noticed at this point that there was nothing in the bike, no water or coolant as I drain them out when I was doing the flush Did NOT do it again after I had realized my mistake.

My Qs are
-Did I do damage to my bike?
- How would I know if I did?
-Does the cbr shut off automatically like some cars would if it overheats to prevent engine damage?

Much appreciated.

You should be fine. If it only got to 80 degrees then that's a good operating temperature.

If you're not going to see a job through at one sitting, or you have other jobs to do on the bike before refilling with coolant, like fitting new hoses, then I'd suggest you do what I do, leave a note on the tank to remind you.

I leave notes mainly to remind me the wheels are loose, no coolant, no oil, brakes not bolted on, no brake fluid. Important stuff mainly.

Yeah it should be fine if it only got up to 80 C (176 F), because that is right around the thermostat temperature anyway; so even if you had coolant, it may not have even started to circulate yet.
