Hi, Rebecca_p and the usual suspects are:
1. Low coolant level.
2. Restricted radiator air flow.
3. Faulty thermostat.
4. Coolant pump or fans inoperative.
5. Vent hose crimped.
6. The air in the coolant and needs bleeding.
7. Engine idling too long or bike moving too slow.
8. Coolant too old needs to be replaced.
9. Faulty temperature sensor, wiring or connector.
10. Radiator veins clogged or corroded needs repair
11. Cooling system leak.
12. Ignition timing retarded.
13. Spark plug heat range too high.

SOURCE: DENON AMP OVERHEATED

More than likely, you popped an amp channel. My experience is that it is the one closest to the middle of the heat sink.

Take it to an authorized service center, and be prepared for a large bill. Good luck...Rob

Several things here. Do an oil change, 10w40 motor oil. Run premium gas and install a new NGK spark plug one heat range colder than stock. It sounds like you have an air leak causing a lean fuel mix. Check the carb mount bolts and the intake manifold bolts for tightness. Also set the valve clearances with a cold engine > .002 intake and .003 exhaust. Check for any cylinder head leaks. This would show up as oil on the cooling fins at the base of the cylinder head. Tighten the head bolts if needed.

SOURCE: Overheating & won't start. Oil & coolant OK.

Sounds like your thermostat is stuck in the closed position. I'd replace the thermostat and flush & refill the coolant.
