overheating

  1. A little too heated for my taste...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Any thoughts on what you guys would view as normal running temperature? Being a new Blackbird rider, i'm trying to gauge whether my new bike is uncomfortably toasty, or whether it's just the new norm' for me to adjust to... I'm aware that the consensus is that they generally get a bit hot...
  2. Manual Radiator Fan Switch...plug and play on ebay.

    Anyone ever try this? It sounds REALLY simple to install and well worth the cost.
  3. Overheating after rebuild

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hey everyone! I just finished a major rebuild on my '02 Bird, and have been on two rides so far since. Unfortunately, I was not able to fix one of the issues I was having before the tear down: overheating. When stuck at lights in the hot weather we're already having, the temp readout will...

    Took part in a motorcycle funeral procession this afternoon, followed a motorcycle hearse (different). In the UK it's a very hot day and the bike temp crept up and up, didn't want to stop as I was surrounded by Air Cooled Harley's! Temp got to 132 (ambient approx 35C) and at that point we...

    Hello, i am new to this forum, and new to Bird ownership. Had my 2003 Bluebird for 3 months (previously owned cb500/vfr750). About 2 weeks after purchasing the bike i noticed the engine temp creeping up during town riding, getting right up to 124+! I took it back to dealer (under 3 month...
  6. CBR 400 RR Overheating / Smoke from engine

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    So the bike that I went out and got - to replace the VFR for this summer (while I fix head bearings, brakes, etc) - has gone and broken too. To be fair, buying a bike that old (1988 CBR 400RR NC23) was probably asking for trouble. Anyway, seemed fine at first, had a few decent ride outs...

  8. Running too hot

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hi. I have been running a little hotter than normal. Usually, my 03 (15,000 miles) runs @ 185 deg F in all but the hottest weather. Lately, my tempt has been rising and staying up higher than normal - usually gets to 215 or so and then the fan kicks in and keeps it there. If I get to an open...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    So I was sitting at costco waiting in line to get some gas. I was waiting for about 15 minutes and when I got off my bike to gas up radiator fluid was pouring out from the fill hole of the reservoir. Any one have a clue why?

    General CBR XX Discussion
    Hello everybody, I have a 1997 BB. Before December 2010, temperature readings is quiet normal, but since January 2011, I noticed somewhat unusual temperature readings. When traveling at highway speeds, the temperature readings are as usual, but when moving at a rate of 40kmh/30kmh or less or...

    Engine / Airbox / Exhaust / Fuel Delivery
    Hi All I have a 2007 BB which is now 18 months and 25,000km old. Just back from a ride in the Snowy Mountains where I had an intriguing problem. For those who know the area, I had been chasing my son on his CBR600RR along Elliot's Way and had stopped at the lookout after the climb up towards...
