you're welcome guys, it's always a pleasure. I think the overheating of Joey's bike may have been more related to the fact he did some recent work on it and probably developed an air pocket. The fact that the overflow bottle was empty lead me to believe the radiator may have been low as well. Which it was. It was worth checking it over. It was an easy fix and luckily that was all it took. It was mighty hot.!! When / where did the muffler come off Matt?
