temp light wont come on if coolant system airlocked, sounds strange but one guy reported it happened to him with 1,000 miles on it?
i always check my boards to make sure thier warm and coolant is flowing, sounds like a pain but its worth for the luxury of having a f-cat!!

the smart valve update was done and i listen to you guys and check boards and rear exchanger before riding. the weird thing is i rode about 25 miles stopped for 1/2 hour started back up(check boards,exchanger) and took off about 4 miles, then shut down the outside temp was 29 and this was in michigan. full tank of fuel and even added anti freeze just incase if water. on my 02 800efi i've had and o-ring let loose but i thoughtr that was a rare. i like this forum for the info thanks rob and everyone with the great wisdom! :(
