2006 Temp light
First time posting. I was driving my machine to and from my deer stand and it?s about 8k one way with no issues. I then park the bike for an hour or more and drive about 15 km.. the temp light started coming on and going off... I stopped the bike for 20 mins and started back to camp.. light started coming on and staying on. I checked and the coolant is full, fan was spinning and oil was good.
I checked the sensor wire on the engine between the seats. As soon as I pulled off the wire the light came on, put it back on.. light off... tried that a number of times same result... once on I wiggled it, no flickering in the light. Drove for about 8 km and no light.. just about to stop and light came on and off.
Bike sat all night (cool night). Drove to my tree stand and no light. Sat in tree stand for 3 hrs. Back at bike and as soon as I turned the key to ON.. light on and then off... shifted into reverse... light on and off... 8km Drive back to camp.. no light.
The exact same thing happened last year... almost identical situation.. not an issue since.
Buddy of mine said either a water pump issue or thermo switch?!?!
Opened the rad cap and some coolant spilt out..
Hoping someone had the same issue.
