As title says I relocated the radiator now bike is running hot. Full of fluid, thought I did a good job of bleeding any air out. I'm stumped please help. Oh it's an Outty 1000 and KI rad relocate kit. Thanks

How do u kno its running hot? Are you going simply off that the fan kicks in alot or is it over heating or boiling over?

It's not boiling over and I didn't give it time to overheat but it melted a hole in my side plastics right below the seat. Never did this before the relocate.

Kick that "Sckull Candy" cover off the Rad for one thing. Check your fan motor for heat after its been running a while. Is it hot? is the full force of air blowing? Could check fan motor for current draw. if amps are too high or motor too hot a NEW fan is in order.Try putting a fan shroud on the backside.

First off it's not skull candy jackass nor is it the fan motor. I'm thinking didn't bleed lines good enough.

I may have an issue as well but not sure.I have the BRP rad kit and have cleaned and filled rad. My fan comes on often but generally stays on for just a few seconds. It's almost as if there is an air lock.

when I bought my rad relocate one of the techs at the dealer told me to raise the rear up as high as you can, then do the same to the front to make sure all the air is out of the system. he had a outlander in there that a customer had installed an aftermarket kit himself and didn't bleed it out properly, the temp gauge showed normal but using a temp gun on the motor the rear cylinder was 100 degrees hotter than the front

If you use that air lift system it pulls every drop of air out of the internals no need to raise or lower the front or back to try to burp the air up
