weird overheating issue
I was cruising on the highway today goin around 70mph. I wasn't lookin at my gauges and swear I saw the rpms do its self check cycle as if I just turned the key on. I shrugged it off thinking I was seeing things. Then a few moments later I see my temperature shoot up. Like 180-190-210-230- Hi in a matter of seconds. I shut my engine off instantly worried that my coolant leaked or something. I check my coolant levels and its topped off completely. I check my oil and its perfect amount maybe a little more and blackish color like it should be. I was stumped. I left my bike sitting for awhile for the temp to go down to about 170. I turrn my bike on for 2 seconds, literally, and the temp shot up to around 215. Keep in mind every time the bike shot up in temp the fan did not turn on at all. I also notice my gauge cluster did not power on when I turned the key one time. In my experience, I've seen this as an electrical problem. Improper grounding or a fuse went out. Any and all insight would be nice.
