I just got back from a ride around town. Noticed my engine light coming on at lights, where my temp gauge was a little above half. Once I got going the engine light went out and the gauge went down.

Parked the scoot in the garage and now I'm hearing an intermittent whining noise. Not sure where to look.

Its a 2013 GTS 300 SS with 2k original miles.

Thanks

Smart. Looks like the coolant level is a bit lower than the min.

Check for coolant leaks. If it's been two year since the coolant was changed, change it and replace the gasket.

Its been exactly a year. Minus well flush it and replace fluids since I have the rubber O ring gasket. Is there a coolant you prefer?
