I would check the level in the radiator....a full reservoir  does not always mean a full radiator ...especially if it isn't properly filled

That's why I asked, if the level is low in the system it won't draw it in from the reservoir.

You need the filler cap to check, on my 2012 it's next to the reservoir not on the rad. Not sure if it's the same for the later models?

The radiator cap is under the right fuel tank cover on the Mk2, astern of the overflow reservoir.

You are correct..I probably should have specified check it at the cap as the radiator has no cap and it is not the high point in the system... and the cap is under the R/S fuel tank trim panel right next to the reservoir

I've discussed this over a versys 1000 facebook groups where there are many italian owners and they all confirmed the same behaviour, so I think it's a design flaw. You need to live with it, take or leave it.

My V1K is on sale and I have already bought a brand new vstrom 650. I don't need 120hp and the bloody heat it produces. I will ride slower and possibly safer ;)

I'm almost sure that the new owner will enjoy my Versys as it's like new despite it has 26k km. I will loose a pretty fair amount of money with this but we all now that motorcycling is not something that makes you earn money, unless you are a dealer!
