PostSubject: OVER HEATING PROBLEM   Tue Sep 04, 2012 2:36 pm

heys guys...i have and 11 s this weekend while riding slow tails it got really hot i mean to the point of quiting my first thought was the circuit breaker for fan i ve been reading about but after checking the radiator it was low but it was cool to the touch it seem no water had been moving i removed the cap starting pouring water in it after a min.it started taken it its like it was air locked or does it sound like the termostat...as i was headed out of the woods i hit a big hole and it like did it again temp ran up to 247 got hot boiling the water out fill it up again to make it back ....any thoughts would be appreciated....

either your fan is not working, or your thermostat is bad, many have had issues with fan relay cause its under the seat and gets all crudded up.

Most of the 11's have the issue with the relay under the floor board. It will let the fan run, but at a lower speed. Is the fan coming on at all??

It's not a relay but rather a circuit breaker.

Replace relay and put it inside a balloon and zip tie it to seal it.... 431114

It's not a relay, a relay requires a min of four wires. A single pole sngle throw (SPST) relay - Gnd & 12v+ to energize the coil and then a set of contacts (NO/NC depends).

It is a thermal overload circuit breaker. Piss poor design to place it in an inaccessable location and susceptable to water damage. Just cut it out, solder the wire together and an inline 30A fuse at the fan...problem solved for good.

Sounds to me like you need to bleed your coolant system. If the rad is cool and the motor is overheating your not geting water circulating in the system. Thats what happens when their is air in it.
