So after the first ride of my VF1000R it puked the coolant and overflow was boiling! At first my panic of having my first classic bike subsided and I’m now using it as an opportunity to learn the bike.
No overheating on the gauge but I don’t think the fans kicked in at any point (as expected from what I’ve heard about these bikes).
I have flushed the radiator and coolant system, and now I’m the process of replacing the thermostat switch (already purchased) but in need of the thermostat and O ring. I’ve looked on David Silver but he doesn’t have the O ring unless it comes with the thermostat??
Can anyone point me in the direction of the following from the U.K:
Thermostat (lower opening temp if possible)
Radiator cap (or compatible replacement)
Also if someone wants to come round and sort my cooling system for me feel free to get in touch!!!
Thanks in advance!
