This is going to be the final nail in this bikes coffin if its not an easy fix.
Ive just serviced the bike well oil and filter.
Ive not touched the coolant. Ive started it up and run to temp, its just boiled up and crapped itself all over the man cave.
The radiator hoses were solid. Ive droped the water and tried the thermostat and it looks to move freely. Filled it with water and run it up.......boiled again about 87 degrees.

Are there other known issues? If this is the head gaskets then its time to dispose of this nail and buy a bike that I will someday get to ride

More likely to be the water pump impeller.  Known to break, plastic......

If your going to have a look, drain and flush the system, remove the thermostat and clean it.  Jam a hose pipe in every opening and flush through with clean water...forwards/backwards....until it looks clean.

You really shouldn't have a head problem, but if you do, Nickyboy has a club just for you!
