I've got a 1999 VZ800, it keeps over heating.
New battery, new switches, new ignition coils, carbs rebuilt, the bike has no thermostat.
Checked impeller etc. Any assistance will be appreciated thanks.

Welcome to a great forum! (y)

Thermostats are designed to keep coolant IN THE RADIATOR to maintain the correct temperature. I would drain all of the old coolant and put a new thermostat in and see if it helps.

Thank you all for your guidance, however I've looked everywhere possible, but there isn't anywhere that a thermostat is missing, the bike didn't come with one.
Does anyone have a diagram of where it might be located?? Thanks in advance.

if the ignitor is malfunctioning will it cause the engine to advance and retard causing the engine to overheat to the point where you cannot sit on the bike.

Did you back-flush radiator? Sludge in radiator will slow down flow and cause overheating.

Also did you answer question about fan? Does it turn ON when radiator gets too hot?
