  • Roaddie getting real hot

    Hello people, I need some help, two years ago I was trapped into a very slow traffic, and my bike start to smell like boiling oil, after that I make an oil change for precaution, but after that I sense my bike running hotter than before, can any of you help me?

    First I would recommend filling all of the stats for your bike that you can. That helps us to give more pertinent advice.

    Then there's the old Groucho Marks routine, "Doctor, it hurts when I do this."
    "Then don't do that!!!"

    Quit driving slow!

      The best way to see if the bike is running hot is to get a cheap infrared thermometer and shoot the side of the jugs to see how hot it is. If you smell something you may have a little oil that has or is dripping on part of the engine making the smell. I know that it is easy to spill a little oil on the top of the oil tank when filling it and it will drip residual oil for a while and smell. Also only use 4 qts of oil when changing it. Over filling the oil with more than 4 qts can also cause oil smell. The bike is air cooled so unless you are standing still or in stop and go traffic not much can make the bike over heat.

        My 2008 FI ran hot when using premium fuel. Be sure to use 87 low octane.
