04 kawi 700 overheating?

I ran it out of water then filled it back up.

When i take it out, it overheats after about 20minutes. The fan is working and i dont see a thermostat....maybe there is one and i have not found it.

Any ideas?

If you overheated it when it was low/out of water, I'd check the head gasket. Have a shop do a "block test". It tests for exhaust gas in the coolant. As for a thermostat, I can't say for sure, but it probably has one, they'd run pretty shitty in the cold weather if there wasn't one. Find it and change it out if the block test is negative.

If it's overheating because of a bad head gasket/warped head, it's getting hot from exhaust gases going into the coolant. Sometimes it will get oil in the coolant and other way round, but usually they just push exhaust into the cooling system.

Sounds like my Kawi 700 after a couple trips bogging. Wash the rad out really good. You have to wash from the motor side and blow the crap out the front the way it came in cause lots of stuff won't go threw but will plug the hell out of it even though it looks clean. I had lots of overheat issues last summer till I figured that out. Nothin like postil to plug a rad Anyway your issues sounds just like what I had so pull your front plastic and clean it gooder washing with a hose from the motor side of the rad not a presure washer (they bend fins in the rad causing overheat issues)
