    in traffic 96C open roads, 80C all depends on ambient temp and riding condotions/ air flow over the rads

    By the time it hits 98,the fan should come in.

    Open road around 77, in town or caught in slow moving traffic quickly goes up to mid 80's and then onto the fan cutting in once in the 90's.

    lads another quick question if i may,with motorbikes being partially weekend toys hence not much use and even less through the winter is it a common cause to get condensation in the oil? obviously clear as you ride it same as car but none the less is it a common apperance

    Many Thanks for all the above comments aswell, starting to build up a bit of knowledge on the bike now

    mine settles between 75/80 also. When starting her i never try and move off until its at 40 miniumum - and then i dont exceed 3k revs - quite easy on such a beast of a motor

    the one time i tried to pull away (slowly) before id reached 40 it actually stalled

    My one has big temperature differences , i warm it up , set off , few sets of traffic lights and the fans are kicking in (96C), when i hit a fast road it goes dawn to 67, which seems to be quite low to me, then i go back into the traffic and in no time its back in 90's. Is that normal?

    Sounds about right...Mine charges up into the 90's - 98/99 before fan kicks in at the slightest hint of slower traffic and then back into low 70's when thrashing along - checked and re-checked the coolant levels etc...all seems fine!!

    cool , must be normal then , but i'm not actually surprised having 2 water and 1 oil radiator and a 60C thermostat. Now its cold and i haven't got it that long so will see in the summer , but i bet that it will burn my nutts in the traffic.
