Hey guys. well my track bike was finished before i binned it. I hope the pix work. Anyway the bike has 3000 kms on the clock, has Ohlins shock and damper, braided lines and a full 4-2-1 system. Its putting out 114.1hp at the rear wheel and im lov'n it to bits.

I had one full track day on it before i took it to phillipisland and binned it
oh well let the rebuild begin.....

Question... 1 thing i noticed is that my fan doesnt come on and my rad boilled over......Is this a thermistat problem ???? and at what temp (C) does the fan come on???

Sorry about the get off and glad to hear you are ok. Phillip Island looks like an awesome track!!

The overheating most likely came from an air bubble in your cooling system. The thermostat does not know that there is hot water waiting to move into the radiator because the bubble is preventing the thermostat from getting a good temp reading. Look for a bleeder valve, I think there is one although I have never been able to find it. Since I run distilled water I just drained the system and started over. Add some water initially and run the bike letting the water circulate (dont run it for too long), add some more water and let it run. Fan should be cutting on around 215-220. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the help 2bfaster. I'll drain the rad and re-fill with destilled water and see what happens...

WackyD- I came off on turn 4 (Honda). So it was just a slow off.

Lucky it was a slow one. I understand fully, it took me the better part of a day to find a good line thru Honda.
