New member here! I have an rsx 850i with 300 miles and i love my gator but have a few problems the first one is it runs hot alot. It doesn't matter if i'm going slow or flying down a road its always running hot. Is that normal? is there a way to over ride the fan? Any help is greatly appreciate it! my second issue is that when its warmed up to operating temps it doesn't want to shift into high, I have to shut it off to shift it. Is there any adjustments for that? I'm still getting used to this thing so is there something 'im not doing or doing something wrong? thank you in advance!

Well if it has one dark bar now and then it's fine. If that part of the gauge stays all the way up all the time you might want to check some things. It should hover around 1 dark bar and the other ones. Thats normal.

If it's staying two and three dark bars, make sure your radiator is clean. Even a half plugged radiator gets hot! Is your fan running? Do you hear is cycle or does it stay on all the time!

Also check your coolant level, both in the overflow tank and the radiator its self.
