Warrior overheating

I went riding finally the other day where my dad grew up at in farm country. Despite the mild temperatures he noticed his warrior was running and smelled like it was running hot. We continued to ride but I read on an earlier post about this problem and some ways to help cure it. I couldn't find it using search so could you all give me some suggestions.

Check the plug color. A temperature change could have effected the jetting. If it has a white tip then go up in jet sizes until it becomes a light to chocolate brown. If the plug is all ready that color then you should get an oil cooler.

I have ridden in some hot weather in trails....lots of up and down shifting.....even for quite a while. I never noticed any heat issues. Are you sure it was overheating? Were you loosing any performance or throttle response? How do you know it overheating? An air cooled engine is meant to radiate heat...I'm sure those fins remove alot of heat from the engine and that probably makes it feel like the engine is running hot.

Also...did you just get that pipe....anything you smell could be machine oil burning off a new pipe.

I guess all I'm saying is.....I would make sure it is really overheating before I jump to conclusions. It seems like your dad isn't affraid to spend money on it with the list of mods he has on it already. An oil cooler is never a bad mod anyway, but if it is truly overheating....it's not supposed to, and an oilcooler may be trying to fix the symptom but not the cause. I'd try to figure out why it is overheating.

All that stuff except the tires came on the machine when we bought it off ebay for like 3100 bucks. We said it was overheating because we felt that there was a large amount of heat then usual coming off the engine. We were drag racing each other a lot o there was a lot of up and down shifting. I'll try to check the plugs tommorrow after we work on the lawnmower, but I doubt that is the problem related to jetting. What is the deal on an oil cooler where can I find one how does it work could you give me the info.

My brother has a DG on his 400ex. We repacked the silencer and it still smells after a couple rides.

For an oil cooler, check this out.

Remember though that an oil cooler is not a cure for an overheating engine. If it really is overheating I would check out the jetting like stated before. Do the plug check.

Did it feel hot or did it smell hot? If you just added a new pipe, look for a tight fit where the headder pipe and exhaust pipe meet above the clutch housing. Leaking burnt oil/smoke smell like a hot motor. Drag racing adds a lot of heat from the clutch packs too and they tend to smell like a hot motor.

Were do you live? If it sat in a cool moist shed, for instance, it was just the condensation steaming off.
