- Typical motorcycle overheating symptoms – both for air-cooled and liquid-cooled engines
- How to solve the problem of an engine overheating
Need a refresher on the differences between air-cooled vs. liquid-cooled engines? Check out the blog post about it here on the Dual Wheel Journey.
Liquid-cooled engines overheating – 4 common reasons
1. Low coolant level
Instead, power is delivered through a metal cable that tensions as you squeeze the brake lever - similar to how many motorcycle clutches work.
Although not so much on modern motorcycles, these brakes are highly common on bicycles and e-bikes.
2. A leak in the cooling system
Seen any puddles or drips underneath your motorcycle, and you’re positive it’s not oil?
Then there might be a leak somewhere in your cooling system.
But it’s also possible that the end of a hose isn’t attached correctly. It might even be possible that the leak is coming straight from the radiator.
Either way, check the coolant hoses and the radiator for leaks and repair them if needed.
