I have a 2006 Kawasaki BF 750 that overheats and then starts leaking coolant all over the place. Does anyone have and easy fix for this before I take it into the shop? Thanks in advance.
I have an 05 bf 750. Usually the problem lies with your radiator. Mud will build up in the radiator, especially on the backside. The radiator was designed for an 18hp motor but the brute pushes 50hp at the crank. When mud hits the radiator the head from the coolant will cake it on thoroughly. Clean it well after each and every ride and most of your problems should be solved.
If you are riding in low ranged through nasty mud for miles and miles on a hot day this is typical. Stop, let it cool, and continue your trek. I installed a temp gauge for that reason. I can monitor the coolant temp at all times and if it becomes too hot I can stop for a few minutes. Most of the time the plugged radiator is the culprate.
