Idling while standing still...not a good thing on these bikes. They crave airflow to keep cool.

you need to keep the bike moving in order to prevent it from overheating, my bike overflows radiator fluid all the time, but my radiators are trashed... If you want to ride slowly, try engine ice, or redline watter wetter. The engine ice helped my bike a lot.
