1986 Gl1200 Aspencade overheating

Post by Solitaire »

My 1986 Aspencade has been overheating since I bought it, I replaced water pump,thermostat and thermostat switch, still overheats 47minutes after I start it. I also noticed ,with the cap of the radiator, the coolant rises to the top as soon as I start the engine. Any suggestions? Thank you

Are the cooling fans coming on?
If the thermo switch is bad, you can install a manual toggle switch to turn them on when needed.
