I just put new Raditor on my bike with the electric fan conversation. After I got it all hooked up and started the bike took a min to get hot, I took the cap off and the coolent was still cold didn't look like it was flowing any ideas!
Although ur prob right though cause the radiator hoses were still cold and the metal tubes were starting to warm up when the temp gauge got to the red so I shut it off the Raditor was still cold and so was coolant
Temp gauge got to the red? Maybe the 7v relay thingy, something sounds a little 'off'.If it's still the same after a decent run the thermostat isn't opening and will need to be replaced, - not a big deal.
The 7v regulator is suspect though if your bike went to the red zone within a minute or so, my bikes gauge wouldn't even start moving in such a short time.
