Hey Guys, I'm still finding my way around my TDM 900 twin and today i decided to flush the cooling system because the bike is overheating in city driving conditions.
There are two main issues. 1. the fan doesn't seem to be coming on regardless of temp and 2. the coolant reservoir was empty.
So firstly after stripping the radiator off completely to access the fan, i found the fan is moving freely and has no signs of wear. It has been suggested to me to check "a switch" or "thermostat", i was unable to spot either. Does this sound like it could be the issue? Where are they located ( a photo pointing them out would be nice)
Secondly the coolant reservoir is completely empty, is this simply an issue of low coolant level or is there an issue with circulation?
Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks.
