Bike running hot

Okay so I did a coolant flush, I flushed the old nasty green coolant with D-water but removing the bottom drain bolt (by front sprocket) I did this till the water was clear. I then added some Tirox Ti cool coolant (about 1.5litters) and 3/4 of a bottle of water wetter.

At this time I did not know to drain the head coolant drain bolt.


So I poured roughly 2 liters of the Tirox coolant and water wetter.

Before I did this flush my bike was running at 173 consistent while riding, now it's at 177 but moves up and down a few degrees but never stays at a consistent temp. At a stop light it jumps up to a high temp quick!!


Anyone know what could be going on?

Air trapped in the system, search "burp".

Get a service manual and follow the directions exactly.

You have air trapped in the system, it needs out.

Yup, air is in there somewhere. It's not the coolant. You can try moving the bike side to side, or ride it and then check the level (under the cap, not in the bottle) and top it up.
