Bike overheating

Hows it goin? I have a problem with my 04 cbr1000 that ive been trying to figure out.

I bought the bike from a guy that obviously didn't know much about motorcycles at all. Anyways the bike overheats every time I ride it more than 20 minutes or so. I replaced the thermostat and flushed the radiator and put some wet wetter in there and the bike is still overheating. I noticed not to long ago that the fan isn't working, could that be the problem right there? Just tired of buying parts for the bike and it not solving the problem....thanks, oh yeah I live in alaska, summer temp. is on average about 50 in the morning and 70 mid-day

If the fan isnt coming on, put power directly to the fan and see if it runs. If yes, then the fan is OK, but the fan switch is bad. Its located usually on the side of the radiator.

Re: Bike overheating

im running at 160 at first than after running for 15 minutes or so, stopping at lights and what not, the bike will get to 220, than if I stop or ride slow the temp will get up to 235 and keep rising until I shut it down.

Re: Bike overheating

The fan on my '07 kicks in around 103 degrees. When I hear it come on I check the temp. every time and this only happens while riding in the stop-and-go city.

Re: Bike overheating

I would check the fan by disconnecting the connection make a jumper with some wire and connect it to a battery if fan works then check fan coolant switch and water pump.
