Hello again all... well still cant figure out why its overheating. Ive tried everything everyone has told me to try so Im calling out to the pros to help out. It started by the cap to the coolant reserve blowing off. I did finally get it home. Had to stop every half mile or so and fill up and cool for a sec then go again. I checked the thermostat and of course it was broke, replaced it and still overheating. I then checked the water pump and the propellers spin whenever I turn the clutch and it turns tight with the clutch, meaning no slack when I turn the clutch. The propellers move right in sync with the clutch. So I was told to try to "burp" it. I lifted the backend to help burp it over and over again and still same thing, after machine heats up it pops the rag out of the reserve and water/coolant starts coming out the overfill hose and steam starts coming out the reserve. Would the rag being the issue? Im only using that until I finally get the new resovoir. Does the cooling system need to be air tight? Well anyways Ive shaken the machine to try to free up the air bubble but nothing. And while Ive been trying to burp it Ive had the thermostat in and out. When I burp it do I need to have the key in and on? I was told that just cranking it over would do the trick when the back is higher then the front... sorry for the book but so tired of hitting deadends!! If I left anything out please just ask, Im tired as all get up so I may have missed something. Thanks for any help, I truly appreciate it. I can not wait to ride and want to be ready for the first good snow fall.... as many of us are...thx again.
