overheating symptoms?

Recommended Posts

I was just out riding the 85 XL250 around and in the past 15 minutes it was bogging real hard - as in, I'd be accellerating and it'd bog down and then catch again, sending me surging forward and then falling back again. If I pulled in the clutch the engine would die. Restarting was as easy as releasing the clutch (if moving) or kicking it a few times after waiting a second or two.

Are these symptoms of overheating? I know these bikes are prone to it. Given that the problem sort of went away after the bike sat for a bit, I was thinking either overheating or some crud in the float bowl.

Any thoughts?
