    Not too many things can cause overheating. Your thermostat may not be opening, your water pump could be broken, your radiator could be plugged or your fan could be faulty. The fan is easy to check, apply 12v to it and see if it runs. If it does, the sensor could still be bad. It should come on at around 210 degrees, 235 seems too high to me. Do you have enough coolant in the system? If you do and the fan is working I would check the thermostat next, then the water pump. Good luck.

**** and cj are both idiots, he said 235 the fan comes on...at 245 by readout starts blinking. My bike never got above 210 before this season now even on short rides it overheats to above 220. I'm going to flush the radiator and hope this works. The fan comes on fine, to check the fan all you need is a pair of ears as it stays on after you switch the bike off.

With the 05 I would check the thermostat. With the 03 that is normal, my 02 cuts on and off around the same range. I put a switch in so I could turn my fan on when ever I wanted. I run mine once I get to 175...

Zx6r 2004. Bike ran great for two months. Went out to dinner last night and came out to my bike not starting. Trailered it home, started when taking off trailer. Went for a 15 minute ride and parked it....


Hi, Matt it saddens me to inform you that you have to put on your Battery Priest Robe and prepare yourself for the Ceremonial "LOAD TEST" but before you begin, maintenance type batteries must be topped off with distilled Holy Water and all batteries must present their terminals to the battery charging altar to receive the electrical infusion of Holy Ions until they have reached a 100% full charge of 12.5 volts or better.
Below is a quick and easy test to see if your battery is in good condition or needs Last Rites and must be replaced.
1. Start by disconnecting the spark plug cables.
2. Adjust voltmeter to DC volts 20-volt range
3. Place the voltmeter leads to the battery terminals.
4. Turn the run/off switch to run.
5. Turn the ignition switch on and press the starter button.
6. Watch the voltmeter as your engine turns over for 15 seconds.
7. If the voltage drops below 9.5 volts, the battery is faulty and must be replaced.
