I am trying to diagnose an overheating problem and would like some help if possible. I have a 2015 VMX17. It is running hotter than it should and I have changed fluids and thermostat with no change.
What I would like to do is compare my bike to others but have no others in my area.
If you would start your VMAX from stone cold, let it idle for 10 minutes and look at the temp gauge. Tell me what your temp gauge reads and what is the temperature where you are at the time.
I live in Florida and on a 90 degree day, in the shade. I start the bike and in 10 minutes it is at 3/4 on the temp gauge and the fan kicks in. I am just trying to find out what other peoples bikes are doing.

So thanks for being a part of my experiment if you try this.
