2004 VFR overheating after tune up

I took my 2004 VFR in for a tune up. They did the usual stuff, air filter, oil change, spark plugs, etc... now the bike is overheating when the Vtech turns on. When its under 7000 rpm the temp is normal. As soon as the vtech kicks @ 7000rpm it steadily heats up to as high as 260 degrees. Oil level is fine, possibly a little high. Coolant level is correct. No sign of coolant leaking from the overflow hose. Burped the coolant system too... fan is working. Worked fine before I brought it in... Bike is definately getting hot though.

Any ideas?

this happened to me last summer. It turned out to be a blockage in the inlet of the radiator.

I once installed a radiator and forgot to take off one of the caps. Opps.

Seems to be doing better now. I've heard the VFRs just need a few heat cycles to get back to normal sometimes.

I agree. That's probably the issue right there. There is too much porn in your engine, and that's why it's overheating. Use water instead.

Too much porn in the ENGINE. Porn goes in the DVD player or on the Internet. Just like the shiny side goes down.
