    at least the one for my old gixxer did.
    Sadly, both the bike-specific Service Manual and the Honda Common SM just say "Apply Sealant" in the description...

    Suzuki Service Manuals FTW!

    Yeah, I've already written down the part number to see if Honda Centre has it in stock.

    Ironically, I was on my way there to pick up some front caliper rebuild parts & pads when the overheating happened and I headed for home.

    Quick question: the Manual says to use "sealant" when reinstalling the switch but doesn't say what kind. I don't suppose plumbing teflon tape is what they have in mind. What should I use?
    Don't use teflon tape,its not designed to seal it is for higher torque on pipe threads. Use Threebond liguid gasket1194 (Mspeed,Modern has it)

    No bike yet waiting for the next one.....
    Have you tried flushing your coolant and getting rid of all the air in the system....i encountered this same issue with my hayabusa couple of years ago......primarily in heavy city traffic. Also check your fuse for the fan and the connections..

    You said you had the fan going by jumping power to it, but another thing to watch for is rocks preventing the fan from turning. When I went to Cali I picked up a rock in the fan and it blew a fuse and threw the engine light but no code. Easy enough fix, remove rock, replace fuse, ride like hell.
