I have a 96 1500 and I have a overheating issue. when I cruise at a slow speed my temp. climbs to between three quarters and seven eighths on my temp guage. Both fans are working. When I ride in cooler temps (70 degrees and less) I have no problems. I suspect my radiators or water pump. How do I find out which it is? I just replaced the anti- freeze this year. Could it be my thermostat? There are a lot of miles on my bike. I would appreciate any comments you have.

It could be the thermostat - but did this happen before you changed your coolant? It's possible you didn't get all the air out of the system.
