changed water pump now overheating?

my water pump was leaking out of my 2010 xtz 1000 weep hole so I changed it. Now it starts to flash the overheating symbol after a few minutes of idling. I read on here that there might be air in the lines causing this? I unscrewed the bleeder bolt by the thermostat and ran it until fluid came out. Do I need to do this several times or just once like I did?It still overheated after one time. Any other ideas why this is overheating? Thanks in advance.

Check your coolant level, I started mine up cold with the cap off, when I opened the air bleed the level in the radiator dropped as it purged the air. Shut it off, and filled to proper level. No issues.

X2 I would say you have air in the system,mine did the same thing when I installed a inline sending unit,I dont have the bleeder screw on mine,I just jacked the front end up with the cap off ..................watch you dont run it long with it over heating, when the icon flashes your temp is around 240 degrees F.

Just curious, what is a typical temperature these things run at? I thought I seemed to be running hot on my hunt this year. Outside temperature was cold and at high altitude. Just thought I would run cooler in that situation. Noticed my fan kicking on a lot too.

Mine runs about 180 year round, during cold weather it runs about 165, and takes forever to reach 180!
