just had 16k service, now i have problems

Just had it done yesterday. Last night i noticed that the rubber thing below the gas tank was sticking out. Today riding to work my bike is running super hot! I hit 222 just on my normal commute. My bike never gets that hot! Also, when the fan kicks on, something is rubbing and it makes a lot of noise! I called the service dept and the guy tels me "normal operating temp is 210-220". Any ideas on what they might have done wrong?

they should have inspected your cooling system so your bike should be running good. as far as something hitting the fan take it back to the shop and have them check it out. If they are a reliable shop they should guarantee their work and if its something they did they should fix it no prob.

wring the crap out of it to try and take it to a ridiculous temp.

call back the dealer and go '255 b!tch, hows that for normal operating temp? fix my sh!t now'

-> this is not necessarily the best advice I have given.

same thing happened to my bike after I brought it to the dealer with that rubber thing hanging out below the gas tank. just tuck the rubber under the tank. there might be something stuck in the fan which also blocks the air from circulating into the radiator

Well i just dropped it off so we'll see what they say. The service guy is like "if its something you did we will have to charge you". What a moron.

"if its something you did we will have to charge you"

You should have replied " well I did put ice cream into the radiator and jam a pencil into the fan....but I think it is something else."
