I understand your current frustration BUT.......
This is NOT a common problem with Spyders.
It might be as simple as the dealer not filling the radiator properly.

Almost every machine ever created has a few units that suffer "infant mortality" when new.

I checked the fluid once it cooled, it appeared to be full. Also could hear the fan turn but felt no air, sounded like it was moving air but just could not feel it. When the dealer showed up to pick it up they looked at it and it was also throwing a "USB Malfunction" error repeatedly. Frustration level was high on the side of the road, contemplated just turning around but at the point it was at I was lucky to move it 1 mile before it started over heating again. We have plans on getting a second one but cant get it local. We will see what they say on Tuesday if we take delivery a 2nd time. Sure is a nice riding day out there.....
If the fan runs while standing still........it runs BACKWARDS and blows out the front.
That is to keep from cooking the rider.
