06 RR having electrical issues?
So when I first got the bike the fuel gauge didn't work. I had been told it sat for a couple of years. (only had 1200 miles on it though). It ran strong once I got it started up, but the gas gauge would usually read empty, or sometimes do the fanning thing that it can do. I checked the wiring as instructed in a previous post... cluster was tight, but the resistance in the wiring that should have read 20-120ohm read 800ohm.
Now, I haven't had time to pull the fuel pump to poke and prod it, but in the mean time the bike overheated on the highway and blew white smoke everywhere. It seems the bike had been overfilled with oil. I let it cool and limped home, changed the oil, and added some water to the coolant overflow. The bike runs good, but when it sits still it gets up to 250* and the fan doesnt come on. (It used to). Also, the turn signals stopped working entirely about a week ago.
Can any of this be related? I think I just want to give this bike away lol.
