Some newbie questions, looking for help

I recently bought a 2010 fury, it's my first bike and so far I'm loving it! I have some questions though because I know almost nothing about motorcycles but I want to learn.

First, my coolant temp light comes on if I'm idling in traffic for a long time, like 10min or more. If I start moving it goes out quickly though. I've checked coolant level and it's good, I just want to know if this is normal or is there something I need to check. The light never comes on when riding or idling for short times.

and second, sometimes if I'm accelerating and then roll off the throttle a little quickly, it sounds like it's backfiring. Is this normal and I just need better throttle control or something else? It does have an aftermarket intake, pipes and a power pro fi2000 if that makes a difference.

Any other tips or resources for this bike please let me know, I'm really enjoying it so far and trying to educate myself as I go.

Thanks!

Thumbs up

Welcome to the Forum and congratulations on your bike.

Regarding the coolant light coming on, there's an electric fan behind the radiator, this should come into action before the light comes on. Check this first. If it does not turn on, check the 20 Amp fuse in the fusebox behind the right hand cover below the seat. If that is okay, the thermoswitch needs checking.

The popping when decelerating is quite normal with your set-up. If it really annoys you and you want to get rid of it, consider removing the PAIR-valves. You can use the search button in the right hand top of the page to find lots of info on this.

Welcome to the best Forum around. Don't let the over heating go too far, It could cost you an engine.

Welcome to the forum and differently check that out it should not overheat that fast I've been in traffic idling for 20 min and never came on. I did the pair valve mod it took care of the popping also check your setting on your controller it may be to lean. I'm at 234 with exhaust and Air kit. Good luck

Personally I like the popping. I believe it enhances the overall sound and look of the bike. Loud pipes save lives, let them know your coming!

Welcome from N.E. FL.

Definitely make sure the radiator fan is coming on. In stock form the ECU will turn on the fan at 225 and off at 220.

Ride safe.

Thanks for all the responses, the fan definitely comes on and I guess it's more like 20 minutes maybe and it's been 90 degrees lately but I'll keep an eye on it. I'm not worried about the popping just wanted to make sure it wasn't because I was riding wrong or something with the bike maybe. Loving riding so far thanks for the help and welcomes!

The popping on decel, can be cool, but I've also startled the heck out a driver on occasion..lol...
anyway, the reason for the popping is unspent fuel being ignited inside your exhaust. With the fuel controllers, yes its good to make sure you are 'dialed in' correctly, but also give a check for any leaks at the head of the pipes, or if u have 2into1's' where the back piece is fitted as well. Or even slip ones...What pipes are u running? Also I can't recall which fi's have auto tune, and which don't, so you may not be able to dial in the pots.
Possibly the coolant mixture is not strong anymore either. 2010 -2017.... worth a thought...imho
