Well the heating up in traffic is normal. try a larger alum. fan when you have a chance. lots of guys will get a on/off switch also to turn on in traffic.

You may have a loose starter setup if the gears are not connecting. If you did not hear anything strange. Just check your bolts and make sure they are tight. If they are you may have stripped your starter gears. Let's hope you did not.

My 01 busa in stop n go at myrtle was fine. Moved temp sensor from air box to left air tube. Running engine ice stock fan. Fan hardly had to come on. Temp needle never moved up to half way point. just my .02 cents but compared to last year with these two mods I over heated bad. Was able to make about six passes down the whole strip at high noon until my arse hurteded.

Man i had the same problem with overheating, even with the engine ice. However it only overflowed once but seems like my fan was constantly on or so it seemed.

As for my starter. It worked fine till the engine started getting hot. Then everytime i started it i'ld hear a clank then it would start. By monday morning when i got ready to load it on the trailer all i was hearing was a whine and it wouldn't start..we had to push it onto the trailer.

I was just getting ready to post someting in the tech section asking for advice... Any ideas or does this sound like the starter has gone bad? 2001 7k miles bad starter --whats the problem?

No your 2 cents are correct the sensor should be moved also.

I do not htink it would be the starter at all. Check for a drain somewhere. If your fan was on heavy you could have drained the battery in the heat. Before you do anything try starting with a jump on the system.

always use caution when jump starting yer battery from another . For instance a car battery . Some motorcycles do not take too kindly to this , you can cause grief for your regulator/rectifier .

ok i stripped the bike down today and checked out the starter. First of all the battery is fine fully charged, but i did but it on the battery tender just to be sure. After that I took the starter off and it worked fine, and there was no damage to the teeth on it or starter idler gear. However when i try to start it it sounds like the gears are not engaging. I'm thinking I might have a bad starter clutch or a faulty starter torque limiter...

I'm open for suggestions .... I'ld hate to take it to a dealer

but it may come to that. Is there any possiblility it could be a fuse or anything that simple. the bike got rained on pretty bad thursday night sitting on the trailer?
