998 Over Heat ???

I have a problem with the temp at idle.

A little backround first. I added a 50mm arrow half system which was for a 996 so I had no ecu. The bike seemed to run rich after adding the exhaust. So I searched e-bay and was able to buy a new DP chip frrom a ducati dealer for a 45mm exhaust. I also removed the air restrictors at the time. Now the bike reaches temps aproaching 210 at stop lights and during warm ups, It may even get hotter if I left it sitting. Once I get going it quickly comes down to the half way point (180). Prior to added the chip and removing the restrictors all seemed fine with the exception of it running rich. Oh ya the bike still runs rich and the exhaust still girgles on deceleration. Also it sounds like its bogging a low rpms in first. It didn't have these issues before.

Any advice greatly appreciated. Thanks

My 02 998 runs about 180 on the road, however, if i am in town and it is warm 80-90 degrees, it is nothing for it to go up to 210-220, and once back on the road it goes down to 180....have asked several other 998 owner and this seems to be there temp to run at. I am termi half system and chip. I just had all the openers closer and belts redone, and water wetter and the same temps as before. My st4 runs about 160 or so on the road, at first I was concerned about the 210-220, and now I a confident this is normal.

Hope this helps
