The problem has taken a new form.
This is what I have done since last time:
-Block test. There is no combustion leakage into the cooling system, meaning that the head gasket is out of the question.
-Replaced the thermostat and gasket for preventative purposes
-Bled the air out of the cooling system
-Coolant Temp sensor works with no issues
Now my bike runs great on the highway. It averages at around 180-190F on the freeway. However, I let my bike idle in a stand still (5-7 mins) to check the condition of the fan switch. The fan kicks on at 220F, but the temp keeps rising while the fan is on at full blast. 221, 222, 223..229!!! Fearing that my temps would continue to rise, I rode around the block for 5 mins and my temp lowered to 210. It seems like at idle, the heat is not dissipating well enough even with the fan. The fan should kick on at 220F and the temps should lower, but that is not the case. After examining the radiator, there is a fat dent on the bottom far left of the radiator where the fan sits.... Could that be causing my problem?
