My 2006 G11 started running hot after a complete restoration due to a crash.
Started noticing more heat coming from the engine and even more heat than normal in traffic situations. Then the service warning in the dash with the error 21 in the diag showed up.
Nothing of particular was made in the fuel system, only thing done on the engine was a removal of the throttle bodies in order to clean up and polish the inside, a weight removal operation done to the clutch and flywheel, and a new fuel filter and hoses. The engine was re-painted as it was the rest of the chassis and wheels etc.
I removed the spark plugs and they are white instead of the usual dark brown/black colour that they usually have. The bike has now 50.000Km since new, has allways been mine and the restoration was made 2.500Km ago.
As all the work was made by me, myself and I, my questions are:

- Could the throttle bodies be out of sync and, would that cause the engine to overheat?
- Could be the TPS not being correctly set be the cause?
- What other issues could cause it?
All opinions apreciated.
