    Does the fan come on? Full on coolant? Any leaks?

    No leaks noticed, fan does turn on but like at 225ish use to turn on at 215 exactly

      Should turn on at 214. Sounds like an issue there.

      Seems like it, idk what tho, everything seems fine, still rides great, just that whole temp thing trips me out

      Yeah I wouldn’t let it get that warm if it was mine. I’d fix it before riding it to much more.

      well i got similar problems twice due to 2 different cause 1. the mechanic didn’t premix the coolant, the overheating started after few hundreds miles 2.bubles, you gonna need to do release the air stuff not sure what they call lol, if you tune your bike that could be another reason

    Check your coolant level that could do it

    Make sure there’s no air in the system. An air pocket can cause all kinds of bullshit. If you’re still running corn that it came with from the factory, change that and look into changing your thermostat. Add some liquid ice and along with that service. I had the same issue with my 2004 but flush out the system, add a new coolant along with liquid ice, and I haven’t seen it get past 225 yet on the hottest day.

    My bike started doing this because of a bad eBay radiator. It would run at 210 plus on open highway and shoot to 230 at stop lights fast as hell. But it sounds like your fan is coming on late. Have you tested the temp sensor out?
