Flushing radiator.

I recently flushed my radiator and put new coolant in- and ever since than the bike has seen spiking temps at stop lights- I can only assume there is air in the system but ive tried damn near everything to get it out- warmed bike up with cap off- pushed side to side, squeezed lines. during the summer ive never seen temps reach 218/219 and its 60/65 degrees out and if i hit a stop light it'll climb quick. Any suggestions?

Did you burp the lines with the cap off? Just a few blips of the throttle.

It might be air behind the vertical cylinder.
Put the front wheel on a motorcycle workbench. Rise the workbench as high as possible and let the engine run for a few seconds. That should do the job.
Thanks from Phl and Gecko

Thanks guys- yes all burping and running has been done with the cap off- it's been at my
In laws so after that drive I need to take it back home and check the level. Deff don't want to keep cycling it up to that temp. Not sure what dangerous heat levels are but I've never her seen her get that warm.

Just rode it home and when I'm going it's normal- when I stopped it climbed to 216 real quick. I've seen it get to 218-219 drops to 170 when I get to going. Even during the summer at stop lights I've never seen it get above 216 I think? Usually around 212-213. Deff something going on in the radiator.

That's not hot. The fan doesn't even come on until 216. Here in AZ my pani regularly gets to 219 sitting in traffic.

Yep. 216 is perfectly fine. In L.A. summer heat, mine has gotten up to 223 but goes back down when moving. I wouldn't worry about it unless it got into the 230's.

lol I knew that would come out of what I said. It is getting too Hot. I've had the bike for 4 years I know what is normal out of it. I'm sure it would continue to climb if I let it. The bike is 100% getting too hot. It will go from 170 to 216 in a matter of a minute or so. I've rode in summer and fall.
