You said your bike used to have a coolant boiling issue. What did you do to fix it?

One member here had a similar issue and it turned out to be a leak in the head gasket.

White smoke, or steam, usually means water in the combustion chamber if it continues after start up. Or it could mean condensation in the exhaust system due to head and cold cycles. The exhaust is a common issue with most vehicles in the north west during spring and fall.

THE PROBLEM WITH THE COOLANT did not go away 100% but what I did is flush the coolant sys and wash the radiator and its boil much less than it used to be .....

Are you losing coolant? Considering you posted that you're having cooling issues, you may have a warped head. Or worse a cracked head!

Omar (omslaw) chased a coolant leak for about two years until he found he had hairline cracks in the head.

Have you done a leak-down test? If you have access to a mechanic's video inspection camera you can look for coolant puddling in the cylinder or if any piston(s) are cleaner than the others. Both symptoms that Omar had.
