    Unhappy Help please! 2006 gp1300r problems...

    Just purchased a 2006 GP1300R... looks really clean. 22.6 Hours on the whole thing.

    Took it out for the first time today. It drove AMAZINGLY for the first 15 minutes. Then... it completely stalled out.

    Started it up again after a couple of tries. Ran for a couple of minutes... stopped again.

    There is white smoke (maybe steam) that would accumulate in the engine bay. Any thoughts? Any ideas? I appreciate anything that you can tell me. I am a total noob. Thanks in advance!

    -Jason

    did you try to drive it with the seat off to see where the smoke is coming from?

    I did try to run it with the seat off. It look like the smoke was comming from near the back of the engine... I guess close to by the battery... Sorry I cannot be more descriptive, I just could not tell much more than that. The river police were nice enough to take me to their dock and let me try to work on it while they had the Pittsburgh swat team doing exercises.

    Start the ski up and hold the button on your guage cluster down for 15 seconds... What number comes up?

    your running hot.... Find your water leak and you will be in business again... My guess is a clamp got loose and you lost water pressure to engine

    I think that you hit the nail on the head... I found a cooling line that is... MISSING!?!?!

    Weird, right? The whole line is gone. No clamps. No line... gone.

    http://i15.ebayimg.com/03/i/001/02/3e/1eda_1.JPG

    See what is missing?

    I just noticed that from the ebay listing I bought it from. Hopefully when I replace it tomorrow the ski works.

    Anything I should worry about from running it without the hose for a while?

    Anything I should do once I replace it?

    Thanks!
