Canyon (asdf38) had a similar problem in August ( http://www.kawasakiversys.com/forums...ead.php?t=1264
), but it didn't seem like there was any kind of resolution, and I didn't find any other posts about this....
A couple weeks ago (when the weather turned a bit colder - you can feel the nip in the air and know it's Autumn), my Versys started boiling / bubbling the coolant in the reservoir and the gas in the tank.
None of my local motorcycle friends seem to have a good sense of what it could be and I may have to take her in to the stealership.
I'll try flushing the coolant this weekend. The level is fine, and I was hoping it wouldn't need a flush so soon...
She needed an oil change anyway, so I did that this past weekend, and spent some quality time cleaning her (I'd rather ride than clean, so just Simple Green / Plexus the bugs off and then shine with Pledge as needed and only thoroughly wash every couple months). Her fuel vent hose was kinked and smushed, so we straightened that out last week, but she's still boiling / bubbling her fluids. A friend who works at the Ducati dealership had a Duc boiling its gas last week and the problem was a clogged vent hose, so he suggested I take a look.
Also, I do have one gold and one blue header pipe - just noticed that a couple weeks ago. I just thought one was dirtier than the other
til I did some Googling and found that it generally (?) indicates that one cylinder is running too lean...? I also found one forum post that suggested the blue/gold header pipes meant the throttle body timing was off. I don't even know what throttle bodies are (but I know the Versys' are made by Keihin!), but synching them sounded like a pain in the neck and something I'd rather pay someone to do.
I'm also in Salt Lake, like Canyon. We're at 4500 feet and I've ridden up around 8000 to 9500 feet (local mountains) loads of times - could that be contributing to the bubbling / boiling or the blue/gold pipes?
Any thoughts? Other things to look at / try before taking her to the dealer? Thanks!!!
