Ok guys..... You are going to love this. Finally got the bike back together. installed a new (used) fan patched the hole in the Radiator, and then took the bike out for a ride. Well here is where the weird part starts. The Temp gauge didn't budge not one bit at all, all the way to the freeway (About 6 miles intown roads) Got it out on the freeway and rapped it up to around 80 miles an hour. Temp started to go up. Leveled out to around a little higher then midway. Stop for fuel and then ran on some highways for about another 6 to 7 @ miles @ around 55 miles an hour, until I got back to some winding streets where I dropped down to around 40 to 45 for an additional 3 miles. When I got ready to pull into a parking lot the temp shot up to almost overheating but not quite. Then as I was looking for a parking space the temp started to fall back down to a little above midway. Got off the bike for about an 40 minutes or so. Got back on road at about 40 to 45 miles an hour for an additional 5 miles temp shot up again to almost overheating. Came to a stop light while I was at the stop light them started to fall to around a little of midway and stayed right there until I returned home an additional 5 miles. WHAT GIVES. I have never seen a temp gauge swing like that before.
