Over heating

Thanks in advance. I’ve read countless threads and still can not figure out the problem. It’s a 2005 Rincon 650 (black). I’ve owned it for 4yrs now. It started to over heat so I removed radiator and flushed as well as cleaning between RAD and Oil cooler (broke seized bolt) and installed a new oil cooler. Still over heating so I changed the radiator cap and still over heating. I just replaced the thermostat and it rode longer before it started over heating again. Previous owner wired the fan directly to ignition and it is coming on. Only thing left that I can think of is the water pump. It does not leak neither coolant nor oil. I’m stumped😖

By chance is the red light coming on after 5 minutes? Or is rad fluid actually boiling?

The red light comes on after a few minutes of riding and you can smell the coolant as soon as it starts to get hot. Have not tried taking the radiator cap off when hot (just cause I don’t want to wear hot coolant&#x1f92a

Was the coolant changed in the 4 years you owned it?
If the radiator is not plugged up and all other cooling components are good I say water pump.

Oil it, lube it, fix it.
