Good evening,

I just got the 2021 in July. I ve had it out for some nice rides. Nothing to crazy, as I am rather new at riding.

However the other day I was about to head out and my bike after 15 mins of riding the temp gauge comes on flashing, as well as the check engine light. The bike also quits, the temp of the bike is 120 degrees Celsius.
So I turn it back on and it seems fine. But just as I get home it starts jerking and reving high. Then it quits again, and I have checked the oil, and all of the other fluids look good also.

Anyone have any suggestions?

thank you

Check your rad and make sure it’s clean. Likely it’s dirty and just needs a good cleaning.

Did you mount anything in front of the air inlet for the radaitor, IE: Light bar?

Thank you, I took it apart and there was some mud caked to the fan. Cleaned it up, and doesn’t get hotter than 92 degrees Celsius.

thank you for you answer. And to everyone else that answered.
When you retested the bike did you do it under a high-speed load for some time? You must be doing some heavy mudding.
I have never heard of caked-on mud on the fan.
