With a new thermostat in here, I must have drove like 4 miles and she got up to 247 degrees before I shut her down..........I have bled the screw at the water pump like 8 times, I have allowed the cap on while riding and sometimes off to let any air escape, I keep the reservoir to the max line and always top off the radiator, I guess it could still have air in there somewhere or worst of all the head gasket leaks.........
This sure is hard to figure out?? From what I read, it should not get hotter than 220??

I've had HOT days stopped in traffic push above 230* but it stabilizes once I get moving. Does yours have a stable temp on idle?

You said you had to cut the bottom off the radiator to get it running..was that part damaged? Just looking at the pic, I can't tell but looks like the radiator is in the rear behind the engine.. is it getting any air flow?

Pretty sure those are the front wheels in the pic.
