Hi, James for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry. If necessary, transport your bike to the dealer or shop and have a professional technician take it for a test drive, if it is in running condition, and give you a written estimate of repairs and answer any specific questions you may have about your issue. For more information about your issue please visit the website below. Good luck and have a nice day.

I had a bike in the shop with the same problem and it turned out to be the CDI that is attached to the back done under the tank. Had to get a new one and they are not cheep. $500 spent.

Should be under the seat ... find the two bolts that typically hold the back of the seat down .. remove them to find the battery box.
Alternatively, you could check in your owners manual or if you dont have one ... you might look at the manufacturers web site or www.archive.org.
Lastly, you could stop by the motorcycle shop parts department and mane a friend of the counterman. They know everything ... and are generally willing to talk.

SOURCE: rapid overheating
The fan should come on when the light comes on, if not check that the switch wires are good & that there is continuity between it the light & the fan
There could be a pocket of air in the cooling system, squeeze the tubes from the radiator to dislodge it
There is a product called a water wetter (probably some sort of detergent) that helps to alleviate hot spots in the engine - Apparently it works well !!
Here's a to some on Ebay ;-)
