I'd REALLY recommend a cooling fan upgrade with manual switch from desmotimes. My temps never exceed 200 any more as long as I turn it on by 190 or so. It's a no brainer $100 upgrade to prolong the life of your bike if you ask me. Before the upgrade, my fan kept the temps below 222 ish after kicking on around 218 or so.FatguyRacer said:Thread Revival!!!
I was riding on Saturday in the 70+ degree heat we were having on the East coast. While doing stop and go traffic thru historic Annapolis on the way to a meetup my coolant temp was hitting 248. It never went above 248, but it was flashing at me when it was reading it. Once out of town the temps stayed down, but anytime i hit slow traffic the temps would climb back up.
Has anyone else seen temp readings this high. I'm thinking my fans arent kicking in, but then again maybe they are. The temp never went past 248 and the red check engine light never came on. There was no visable signs of overheating and i'm running straight water as far as i know. (my coolant reservior is clear)
