F4i troubles after valve adjustment
I got her put back together today, started it up. No issues there, it sounded really tappy, but I figured that was because I had to set a couple of valves on the loose side since I didn't have the exact shim I needed.
I took it for a test ride, and first thing I noticed was the temp gauge was all over the place. It would go from 182 then flick up to 214 then to 193 then to 221 and all in between every couple of seconds. I stopped at a gas station and turned it off to pump gas, then it wouldn't crank and was showing 230. I let it cool for 5 minutes and it cranked back up. On the way home it was getting super hot but the temp was still jumping around and the bike was surging really badly. I made sure I hooked all the connectors back up, and go no error codes.
