my 05 999 will top out around 217F in stop and go, and about 170-180F when rolling around

fyi I have seen my 749 go as high as 220 on stop and go. Maybe I need to have a look at my cooling system.

Spot on for me...but the traffic has to be moving otherwise, I'll see it go past 220...

Temps >220 are normal in heavy stop/go... no need to worry unless you are reaching ~235
