Re: 2003 K1200LT Coolant level question
I just have to point out something about this forum.
A new member posts what seems like a basic question, and the first answer he gets is not an attack about the importance of the question or a 'why don't you use the search button' reply, but an honest, reliable, serious answer to the question. This is possibly the best forum on the internet! I mention this because I bought my wife a new Nissan the other day, signed up for a forum about the car, and posted a simple but heartfelt question and got nothing but angry replies. I posted in reply to their posts how I was used to seeing a forum run, thanked them because that's who I am, and then quit. I just needed to say that we have a good bunch of people on this forum, kudos.
Now on to this post. My coolant window always looks full, even after jiggling the bike a bit, and I am having problems with overheating on my 2000 LT. Well, put it this way, driving through the traffic in Vegas on the 15 I had to stop twice to let her cool (which is a slow process in 110 degrees). I'm thinking that my radiator fins are too full of dents and bugs to cool correctly, or my Pia's are mounted too close to the radiators to allow air flow around them, but I feel as if I am missing something. Any ideas?
(now I'm waiting for the angry replies, lol!)
