Hello , 
Just wanted to check if there is any Zontes V310 owners here?
Just gotten a Zontes V310 and the bike is very hot. Rode for 20mins and the heat indicator is at 5bars.
Is it normal or is something wrong? i bough it back to the workshop and the person told me it's normal.

Thanks in adv!

congrats on your zontes @Kazu. u bought brand new or used? class 2a bike shouldn't run too hot, further more.. the V310 is liquid cooled so unlike older air cooled bikes.. they don't have overheating problem in traffic.

your feeling hot is during traffic light or during riding? your bike still under warranty? the workshop u went back to is choong kok agency?

if they confirmed no leaks.. then maybe you can try changing to a better coolant to disapate the heat better. i have used engine ice in the past and have good results.. u can get from unique motorsports. engine ice last about 30k km between changes so it's a cheap investment for a peace of mind

btw your engine temp heat indicator 5 bar, but total how many bars? can you post a picture here so we can see if it's normal?

good luck!!

Hello @Maxer , I just collected my bike last week and it might be me not being used to a higher cc bike. WIll try the coolant you intro. 
The bike was a bar away from red but it was when i was at the carpark , found out that when i moved the engine cooled down quite abit. 


haha sorry damn newbie at biking.

@Kazu that doesn't sound normal bro... modern bikes... the coolant system that cools down the bike.. there is a thermostat that opens a valve to flow the coolant into the radiator when the temp rises.. also.. when the temp is up to a certain temp OR when your bike is at a stop.. the radiator fan is suppose to turn to cool down the radiator..

it sounds like either your thermostat is stuck close OR your radiator fan is not turning..

that's why modern bikes... the temp gauge is usually very stable.. it's not suppose to rise when you are at a standstill.. those conditions sound more like older air-cooled engines...

try taking a look when you are at a traffic light.. whether your radiator fan kicks on or not...

or maybe the zontes v310 doesn't have a radiator fan?

Hello , My radiator fan does kick in but the engine is still fairly hot.
Think the Zontes V310 has a very big design flaw , on the left side gear area there is an exhaust pipe which really feels damn hot till the point i have to move my leg away.
Starting to regret my decision on getting the V310.
