Is radiator working properly?

Recommended Posts

Just changed tires today and took bike out for a quick spin. Let it warm up a few minutes and then went out for about 3-5 minutes and returned. Engine felt very warm near my right pant leg. Looked at my overflow tank and it was 1/8 filled. :cry: Is my radiator not working properly? I had hardly ridden it very far. Coolant did return to the radiator but this seemed a bit premature.

Am I missing something?

Thanks,

Paul

If its doing something different to normal then you may have a problem

The thermostat stuck closed is the most likely cause

But mine worms up just as fast as you describe

& with coolant in the overflow tank after 5 minutes

Sounds normal to me! I woouldn't worry at all!! But I'm no expert either. Just sounds the same as what mine does week after week!!
