Here is a video of my R3 recall. Does not include the service procedure But includes the part when the BIKE overheated as the service technician forgot to fill the radiator coolant

Wth. "Either it's not reading it right or there's an actual issue"... It's a very new bike why wouldn't you pull over and let it cool?

I now have very high blood pressure from the traffic... and the fact I was sitting here yelling pull over an let it cool down! Call them! Call them! Do you know how lucky you are the entire engine didn't just seize in mid traffic? With that kind of traffic you'd definitely be dead.

Sounds really bad isn't it Actually, the Bike can take a lot more heat till it switches off by itself. Continued....

...But The fact was that they forgot to top up the radiator, so basically the coolant was there but was not flowing as there was a gap.

Also, the fact that I am/was a noob and didn't know what to do as the service center was very near. In all, the bike ran like that for about 12 minutes but did not encounter a thermal shutdown.

I later read the manual and found that if the heat meter starts to blink then it means that the bike is going into thermal shutdown state.

At the time that this happened, I was under the impression that the bike should shutdown by itself if there is a coolant issue. The coolant level was also correct. So I thought that this was some sort of sensor issue.

My doubt was corrected when another R3 owner came back with the same issue. He had gone even farther from where I was.

I had my cars head cease. It was great fun... the pressure cap on my radiator never blew so my radiator blew instead... I didn't know I was inside dropping my kids off... got about 5 miles until my head just twisted that it locked up. All over the stupid way I had to have it rigged up to work... because Mitsubishi can't fix it. Now I run with three spare fan controllers. I rebuilt my engine myself thank god I can do that because I definitely didn't have the money for a new car... before I even left the dealership I checked everything. Sounds like you had an air bubble.. I love my dealer but I just don't trust them 100% they're busy and it's so easy to make a mistake. I've had a friend start an engine with out oil because he swore he put oil in it. Oops. Aluminum is so easy effected by heat.

Yup, I am extra carefull these days.
I am thinking of replacing the stock coolant with some extra cool type race coolant so that I do not have to worry about overheating.

Now I realize how good my old air cooled honda was

Oh god air cooled... just don't chase a Sabre v65 up a mountain when it 110℉ and the bike has to run 20/50w conventional.... because you will burn all your oil. Doing 100mph flat two up... what a terrible smell.. gives me nightmares. It was an 1976 xs650 poor thing we rebuilt her... my ex has just beat the bike so bad now... if your afraid you could get engine ice or something like that... I'm now dating my boyfriend had the Honda v65 Sabre that beast loved to over heat besides a fan that loved to never turn on her out engine ice in it.. it never over heated again... put a fan switch to turn the fan on when stopped. oh bikes they're like pokèmon I want to catch them all....

My r3 radiator fan is quite good. Just as everyone's bike here. Just the find are bent. All because of the negligence of the dealership technicians. Now I can't even make them straight. Does anyone know how much would a new radiator cost?

In the US you can get them on partzilla or a place like that for pretty cheap
