Heating with the Blade
So, my recently bought Blade had a hectic overheating issue with the bike running up to 118 Degrees celsius.
Doing some fiddling, I found out that the bike had almost no coolant in it, coupled with lots of air bubbles and the main fan was not connected. ( and I bought this bike from a dealership, flippen pathetic )
Anyway, I got all those things sorted and now the bike runs around 77-79 Celsius.
However I have noticed that when idle or I stop at a red light the temperature quickly rises, if left for a while and I mean maybe 1 - 2 minute it rises to 104 when the fan kicks in then it will stay around 100 - 105 ( but this is all just testing, I never have my bike idle for that long ) At a red light it will maybe get to 80 - 90.
Coupled to that sometimes ( like today ) when I went onto the highway, I was going maybe 140KMH and the temperature rose to 88 then just suddenly jumped to 77 and it has done this before, quite often.
Anyone got any ideas or does the Blade just run super hot ?
I am taking the bike for a service soon, in another 1500KM, do you think I should maybe just get it sorted sooner ?
