I have a 2013 outlander that is running hot after about 10 min of riding or 30 min of idle.
The water pump is working and the thermostat opens not sure what it could be.
Radiator is clean and shows no signs of swelling.
Any info greatly appreciated

Welcome to the site. Certainly not trying to question your eyesight here, but we see it all the time "radiator looks clean"

They are notorious for trapping buildup and mud and dirt in areas you just can't see. Pull it off the bike, you'll likely find it's not clean at all, heh.

pulled it off and soaked it over nigh to make sure all the build up was out

They can be a bit of a pain to bleed all the air out, then, afterwards. Could have some residual air pockets still in the system somewhere.... and the fan is cycling on/off as expected?
