Engine overheating issue        

Hello everyone,

I'm hoping I can get some help from some experts on here. I am at my wits end. I bought my wife a 2005 250 so we could ride together and she can learn to ride. However, her bike keeps overheating. We went riding and her bike spit all the coolant out through the reservoir relief hose. The reservoir was boiling as well. I can't figure out the issue. I have replaced the thermostat, checked the water pump, drained and refilled the coolant, checked the radiator cap and ensured it holds pressure, and the fan works as well. The radiator is clean and not gummed up. IT seems to only get too hot after riding about maybe 20 minutes. It's just a gradual climb in temp that doesn't stop and twice now we have hit the top of the temp gauge. Does anyone know what I could be missing? Thanks for any advice you can give me.
