Just bought 2007 Versys GT - Cooling Problem
Just bought secondhand 57 plated Versys GT. Didn't come with the original panniers, so I've had to buy new Givi V35's, but they look great..
I think I might have an issue that didn't come to light at purchase.
Bike runs fine, very responsive, great riding position.. However, when I've come to the end of a journey longer than 15 mins, I'm noticing an amount of coolant being dumped from the overflow pipe.
This has happened several times now. When in traffic last week, the temperature light came on. I moved off to find somewhere to stop, and the light went out, presumably as I was moving again and the rad was receiving an amount of cooling having not been in traffic any longer.
A fellow Versys owner has asked if the cooling fan is coming on - which it isn't. So there's clearly a problem; however..
Does the thermostat on the Versys control when the cooling fan kicks in ?
Or does the cooling fan have its own temperature sensor ?
I think I'm obviously gonna have to do some kind of fix - but don't want to start with the thermostat if it isn't linked to the cooling fan working..
Any help or advice greatly appreciated.. Many thanks
