It's normal because at an idle the water pump is turning too slowly to be effective, and there is no air flowing over the radiators. The bike will boil in under two minutes in most cases.

The header also glows red, before you ask.

That's normal.You think that's bad;my buddy's CRF would dump about a cup of coolant within a couple of minutes. Go out and buy a heavier rated radiator cap,like a 1.6.

if you still have overheating problems, royal purple makes a product called purple ice for cooling systems and if works good in these bikes. It also helps with corrosion. temps in my bike dropped almost 20%.
