Good morning all,

Just got myself a 2003 955i Daytona with 7k miles. Needs a bit of sorting but I love it. The forum will not let me post anywhere else so this is where I will start. The bike does not go over 220 ish but heats up extremely fast and does not cool down under 200 farenheit until I am going over 60mph. If I stay in first gear or any gear and rev over 7-8k the temp climbs up over 210 f even at highway speed. I just ordered a thermostat and radiator cap and am going to remove the fairings and do a coolant flush and replacement of those items. Any helpful advice is appreciated. I have searched the forum but any info on how hard fairing removal is ?

Thank you,

Welcome to the forum!

Now that you have posted to The Welcome Center, repost your inquiry in the Daytona thread. The gear heads who can give you the best advice are likely hanging out in there.

Enjoy your Daytona (a beautiful motorcycle, that). Cheers!
