over heating '02 426

4 posts in this topic

Was riding technical 1st and 2nd gear single track, bike overheated, overflow bottle empty, puking fluid out the tube next to swingarm. Let sit for a while and was fine, but I didn't climb anymore in elavation and picked up the pace alot. I am going to the 1.6 cap and I need to replace the vent and overflow tubes only because the ends or split.

I also wrapped my head pipe in exhaust wrap and put some heat shield on the very bottom of my right radiator which helps the heat in tight stuff I can promise you just ride around in shorts before and after :thumbsup:
