a week ago, just after riding 5 KMs, suddenly the Engine Overheating light came-up. I immidiately parked the bike on the side of the road and kept it shut down for a minute or two. once, firing up the engine again, the Engine Overheating light was still ON. took the bike a few hundred yards ahead to my office parking lot and only then noticed that, the radiator coolant was overflowing through the drainage pipe at the bottom of the bike. i am familiar with spillage of 1-2 drops, but it was quite a bit today. got quite confused/horrified as in my 3 years of riding the R15s (the version 1 for 2 years and this new one for the last 4 months), i have never experienced the lighting-up of the Engine Overaheat light. so, took the bike to the SVC and they checked the radiator, coolant level and the fan inside and the light never cam up again. plus, the fan was running nice. so, topped up the coolant and came back to office, a 10KM ride that took almost 2 hours in bumper-to-bumper traffic, the overheating light never came up again and I could hear the fan running.
this morning again, the engine overheating light came-up again just after a ride of 4 KMs and waiting at Bumper-to-Bumper traffic for a few minutes only, although I could see, hear & feel the radiator fan running. the light came up and stayed for 2-3 minutes then it went off as if nothing has happened. no coolant spillage or overflow this time.
however, during the gap of one week, i could feel clearly that the right side of the engine/fairing was getting much hotter than usual even after short rides of 5-7 KMs. this is the second time in a week the engine overheating light came out and since, this is quite unusual for me, i am getting a bit nervous about my bike.
now, i would seek your opinion since, some of you might have had experienced it randomly. please do let me know if any of you have experienced it and please assist me to calm down a bit.
