spray some cold water on the rad when the bike is hot. The water will evaporate quickly from the areas of the rad that are not blocked. On any areas where there is a blockage in the rad the water will not evaporate.

Welcome to the forum ROBERTONE
What did you do to insure that the pump is good?
Do you have a repair manual for your bike? This is your #1 tool to have and use.
Have you replaced the radiator cap?
Have you replaced the hoses?
Have you flushed out the radiator?

If your pump is good, is there constant bubbles in the radiator? That would be a leaking headgasket.

Hi Robert and welcome to the forum.

Does the bike act like it's overheating? Steaming? Overflows? If not, it could just be your gauge going bad, or the sending unit.

Or it could be a bad head gasket or plugged radiator. What kind of coolant are you using?

Also, running without the thermostat can actually cause the machine to run hotter.

Oh, and caps are considered "shouting" on this forum.

Why ain't we ridin'?

It is better to know where you are going than to get there fast.
