She Boiled... Ruined Anything?
First post, and it's an embarrassing one.
I did a silly thing guys...
Forgive me, but I'm still totally unfamiliar with the machine. It's been neglected by the previous owner, so I was surprised by this one.
I just got my KLR used. Started it up, and let it idle in the driveway for a bit. Didn't realize the fan wasn't kicking on.
She got hot, I saw the temp gauge nose into the red, so I shut it off. It boiled over into the coolant bottle.
I let it cool, then I tried it again, mostly out of denial/disbelief... boiled again.
It happened twice for a couple minutes each time. Both times shut the bike off right away.
Question: Did I wreck anything? Is my motor compromised? Ruined?
Please put my nerves at ease: Fingers crossed. Hoping the KLR is tough.
(I got the fan running, which solved my overheating problem)
