Check that your radiator fans are coming on and at what temperature (just start the bike up at your house and let it run until the fans kick in, should be around 105C I think. You can get an ECU flash done to make the fans come on at a lower temperature.

If the fans are working properly, check the coolant levels and the condition of the coolant if you haven't already. If the coolant is very dark in colour, do your bike a favour and flush the system and replace it.

Hey man, sorry to hear that. I actually had a similar issue in my 07 R1. I checked fan and flushed and nothing worked sadly. Then people suggested it could be the thermostat and I changed it and it worked, was actually better than before.

Here is the link to my post that talks about the part.


Also I made a video on YouTube showing what I did, hope it helps.

Good call, forgot to mention checking the thermostat.
