Hubbys bike recently had a new radiator installed, and its been running beautifully since then, that is, until yesterday. The fan kept coming on, so he stopped a few times to check on things and was reassured that the overheating light was not coming on and all seemed ok. Anyway, the bike rolled to a stop, with smoke coming out of the engine. He had to get it towed home by the RACQ. Checked everything out later and all pipes etc were connected properly, but there was no water in the radiator. He is phoning the mechanic later today, but we cant afford to get it fixed at present. Do you think hes cooked the motor? The bike did start up again later. Its a 1996 Triumph Trophy, done 130,000 klms. I want him to trade it in and get what he can for it, before he parts with any more $$$. The new radiator alone cost $2000 to be made up and fitted, but he wont hear of trading his baby in. Im worried that hes cooked it, but there was also a rattling sound in the engine just prior to the smoke coming out.
