My 700 has been getting hot since the day I brought it , It Looses Approx 200ml of coolant a ride.And the Cooling fan was nearly always coming on :mad:
So my local dealer said you mite as well bring it in before ya warranty runs out. :grin_nod: Today I get the call that the head gasket has been leaking (blown) and ring has some damage,Which seems to of been like that for a some time :wtf:
Please let me know if anyone else had something simular.
I would strongly suggest get to your dealer as they thing it may be the head torque that started it!!

P.S The Head Gasket is on back order from Japen Go Figger :rocket:

Yeah I hope so, As I even put a PWR racing alloy radiator upgrade in it to try to cool it down :mad:
And I rang them the day I got it and told them it seems to be losing water and he told me it's normal till they run it :brick:

I may have the same problem with my BRAND NEW 700. I'm still trying to determine if the head gasket is blown or not. I noticed the other day after I quit riding that my radiator was boiling. I've also noticed a drop in my overflow tank. Did Yamaha cover yours?
