Aprilia rs125 running problems

On 21/06/2018 at 19:21

So this is a long story ,
Bought a NON running aprilia rs125 for £600 (asking price was £1100)
Openend up the air filter and there was no sponge in it, after that I changed the starter motor and cleaned out the 28mm carb and bought a new sponge and put it in, NO RUN.
Removed the whole air box and tried to start and it did, put on the box and it started and ran for a good day on off, went back next day, no luck , rinse and repeat, so after then putting on a new air box and sponge it ran but the coolant was bubbling and engine temp was 90 without moving, what do you guys suggest??

So it's now just an overheating problem?

I would drain the coolant and clean out the cooling system and put in new coolant and see what happens...... Does it the cooling fan kick in?
