there is one kink in the hose (bent radiator) and it looks like I hit the waterpump cover again through my skid plate but no visible signs of damage from the outside like there was last time - I will take out waterpump anyways to inspect but any ideas? Do you think thats it?
On the last ride I had it started in the middle of it and bike was fine as long as we kept moving... soon as we stopped it overheated...
thanks for the help...

If it's not the waterpump check your jetting out, might be running lean which is not a good thing either.
while jetting can difinitely cause the engine to run hot, imo this seems more like a problem with the cooling system, ie inadequate coolant level, pressure loss, water pump failure, ect...

then I changed the main before my last ride because outside temp dropped to around 10Celcius and it ran okay after adjusting fuel screw... until the end of the ride when it started to overheat a lot...i think I hit something and cracked outer pump cover and then it all went downhill from there...
I figure it has to be the pump... I will check the pressure on the cap as well but I just think there is no flow so its a pump...
thanks for the advice guys... only way to find out will be to dig in this weekend... waiting for parts in Slovenia is the crappy part though... will take another 2 weeks to get it...

so in the end it was a combination of things but looking at the oil that drained out and the spark plug there was no indications of damage to engine:applause:
thanks for all the help/suggestions...
