Bike running hot after flush

Tried the search bar with no luck so hear is my issue

I did a coolant flush today, drained coolant, washed out resivoir, poured distilled water blipped the bike a bit till all fluid coming out of the drain plug was clear. Poured this stuff



into the radiator and the resivoir ran the bike a bit and put it all back together. Took the bike for a quick ride and the temp shot up to 240 in town. I stopped and let the bike cool then went out again. It stayed cool at freeway speeds but as soon as I got back in town the temp shot up again. It wasn't doing this before the flush.... Any thoughts????

So now that I feel stupid.... Air in the system, got it out in like 15 minutes. Everything is back to normal. Thanks for your help guys I freaked out and didn't think of the basics first. Just went straight to panic mode haha...

Thanks again!
