2003 Goldwing ABS close to overheating
Hi, I tried searching this, but didn't find answers for the year that I have. I know they run hot and the temps have been around 104. I rode it the other day for about an hour and it was one bar from the top red. I checked the res today and it was full- according to the dipstick. Warmed it up to around the middle of the gauge and it still looked full.
It has 83k on it and I just had new tires and front brakes put on it. Could something have happened when they were doing this?
Should I look into a new thermostat or is it common, at these out door temps to be running that hot?
Should I take it out and see if goes higher then check the res? I know there are different thresholds on thermostats, given the temps here in Tucson, AZ- should I look at not only changing it, if necessary, but a different temp one?
Honestly, I am nervous about taking it out for a longer ride now. If it's common, I won't worry too much.
Any help or suggestions would be great.
