re: Overheat warning?
Man! i've been scouring the internet for days over this exact thing! i have a 2019 r6 and almost the same exact thing happened! I was omw to the gas station, it was between 93-97 out in the middle of the day, and there is a small amount of traffic right before the gas station due to a few poorly placed stopsigns (Kentucky roads are aids sometimes)
As i pulled into the gas station, i saw it rise from the normal-ish 210 to i think 248 before i saw the light and hit the killswitch and coasted to the pump, i let it chill for a few minutes after i got gas, and it didn't happen again. I rode it home, and the next day i did a coolant flush. It had what i believe is stock coolant? it was like a blue/green almost like blue raspberry colored coolant. (This is my first r6 so idk if its stock)
But just to be safe i did a flush on it and put some Cool-Aide in it, made sure to burp it. I think i'm going to switch to engine ice though, heard nothing but good stuff about it. I haven't had any overheating since, hopefully i don't either.
