2008 AC Prowler 650XT Overheating
Went out yesterday biking....it was about 80 deg F.
When driving top end 45-50 mph my Temp light would start flashing and the gauge sweeping from min too max.
When I stopped. a little bit of coolant would come out the overflow....when it cooled a bit I checked the rad and it was full.
If I drove 30-40 mph everything would be fine until I stopped, and then the temp symbol would start flashing again and when I shut the bike off completely, the gauge would do the sweeping motion again.
Possible thermostat problem??
Can anyone shed any light on this or have you encountered any problems similar?
PS.. When I took the rad cap off, there was no big pressure or anything.
Took a water hose and hosed out the rad and fan....there was alot of dirty water coming out.
Then blew it out with the compressor.
As there is the full cab on my bike (hard roof, hard windshield, back and doors)...taking the rad out to clean would be a long tedious job.
Will only know if this helped on my next time out.
Any other suggestions??
