I have a 98 VFR, 21K miles. I've owned the bike for almost 2 years and absolutely love this "1998 bike of the year." I'm turning to the gurus of all that is 2 wheeled for some help... During the last few months, I've been chipping away getting the standard work on the bike done that almost any vehicle should have performed. Meaning I have done the oil every 3K mi or so, changed the spark plugs, air cleaner (had a mouse nest in it. nice. thanks for taking care of it previous owner!), a valve adjustment needing 2 shims, clutch/brake fluid, chain and sprockets, brake pads, tires, and coolant. The coolant is a more recent check, I had a bike repair guy do it a couple months ago along with the valve inspection. After the coolant was changed, I noticed that the new green stuff he put in made the bike seem to run a bit hotter. I've never gotten the overheat warning, but I've gotten as high as 240 F while sitting in city traffic. Usually when I'm moving in the city for extended time period, my temp will still sit around 200 - 220F range on a 90 degree day. On the highway on a hot day for an extended time, I'll be running around 190 - 200 F. I've had it boil over a couple of times after shutting the bike off. Well, the high temperatures did not sit well with me, so I read the write ups on here and switched to engine ice (after flushing twice with distilled, of course). The engine is still getting hot enough in the city that I hear the coolant boiling after I shut the bike off. Not good. Again, never topped 240 F, but still concerning. I read up on the forums here for overheating problems. Could be the thermostat, air in the system, the thermoswitch, radiator cap, an obstruction in the lines, among other causes. Oh yeah. Forgot to mention. The radiator fan never kicks on! In fact, I don't think I've ever heard the fan kick on before... sounds like the thermoswitch or the fan to me. I don't have much in the way of testing tools for why the radiator fan doesn't come on, so I bit the bullet and took the bike to the dealer. Dealer looks over it, says its the thermoswitch and the radiator cap that need replaced. $250 parts and labor. Sounds about right. The dealer usually does pretty good by me... But in the attempt to save some $, does anyone know how to replace the thermoswitch ($50 part on bike bandit) or where I could find a write up? I like pictures. How difficult would it be? Haha... I think I can handle the radiator cap... Any advice given is appreciated, thank you!
