'05 750 runnin' a bit warm - November 7, 2006, 05:55 PM

My 750 runs above 200 degrees whenever I put around town, or have to sit at a light for more than 20 seconds. We thought it was motor problem so I replaced the motor but the problem is still there. Has anyone else experienced this problem?

Can you hear the fan coming on around 218 degrees? My 05 750 always ran hot riding around for short trips, actually most bikes will. What's the highest temp it goes to?. If it goes much over 225-230 then you might need to check the fan, radiator, and flush out the coolant.

I am hoping he means fan motor. Parts replacement is an expensive means to trouble shoot. See BlackHatch's comments.

hot 750 - November 9, 2006, 12:21 PM

I pulled the original because it was sucking down coolant. With the new motor I got, the coolant at least stays where it's supposed to, but the bike still runs hotter than I'd like. I'm thinking that there's something wrong with the radiator. I'm having the original motor rebuilt and adding some goodies for more hp. The backup motor I bought will be sold this winter as soon as I get the original one hooked up. I paid a lot of money for the motor and the labor, but you can't put a pricetag on peace of mind, so it's cool.

If you're running 200-230 why would you waste money on a new motor?

With that... what "you'd like" and what physics dictates based on the design of the motor are totally different animals.

Mine runs about the same around town. I thing that's normal. Coleman's had a few in with the same complaints but it's ok. They aren't built to go putzing around town so the air flow isn't the greatest. When the heat gets up, like Brooks said, the fan will kick on. That is normal for that bike.

My '04 would run at 180 when I was moving but would heat up pretty quickly if stuck in town. As long as the fan kicks on and it cools back down to normal temps once you get moving again I wouldn't sweat it.

You could double check the coolant level in the radiator though, maybe there was some air still in the block when you filled it up last and you're running low.

mine runs the same way, my old 750 was the same too. Try engine ice it lowers the temp couple of degrees. Those bikes do not like to sit through traffic but that's the way they are.
