I let the temp on the display show up (~95ish) before heading out. That's about equivalent to letting your car warm up to the point that the temp sensor goes from cold to normal/off.

But during colder months, around 50's and lower, i'd let it to go ~120's ish or whenever the exhaust doesn't puff white smoke anymore

Mine starts to read about 98, I take off after I get a number reading and take it easy out of neighborhood. By the time I get to light 1.5 miles from my house I'm golden.

As long as it takes my finger to come off the starter button and my foot to kick the shifter into gear.

It will warm up when I am riding.

On my race bike I wont leave the hot pit under 160.

I stated up my bike and the temperature went from 96-137' within a min. Plus there was a lot of white smoke coming from the exhaust. Is this a bad thing? Kinda smelled like oil burning as well

White smoke usually doesn't mean oil burning. Oil usually adds a blueish tint to the smoke.
I'm guessing its just from it being cold outside. Your bike is fine.

I like to let it get as hot as possible before I go. If I'm at home ill start it and come inside and get my **** together. By the time I have my gear it's up to temp. If I'm out and it gets time to cool down Ill start it up and put my gear on while it warms. It usually shows a reading by then. If not sometimes ill just go or check up on my texts.

Letting it get as hot as possible is not recommended FYI. You ideally want to get the engine moving after 30secs/1min at an easy pace to bring it up to temp. Letting it idle cold keeps the engine in the vulnerable cold state for longer.

these bikes dont run on carbuerators, they have fuel injection....you dont have to warm it up before riding, it warms up as you drive.

I second what everyone else says - when the digits show up on my gauge.

I would do this, but I have these pesky things called neighbors and a 2bro's exhaust.

Luckily for me, its still 85 degrees outside so my bike is warmed up in about eleven seconds.

Because no modern engine ... Or even old engine requires the temps

Do you know why you used to have to warm up cars? Cause the choke sucked an they wouldn't run until warm lol

The ecu richening the mixture is exactly what gets around that issue

Idle a cold bike, and it can take a long time to actually warm throughout....ride it easy and imho, it will warm up quicker, just dont rag it.

nobody can really know though, so do as you feel works best for you :)

Read my reply mate... it's clear why you shouldn't let any modern engine, let alone your RR's, it's because most damage is done to an engine when it is cold.
Now letting it idle will take longer for it to warm up therefore keeping it in that 'vulnerable cold-state' for longer.

Plus as a final point, read your owners manual. Clearly says it in there too!

HTH.

Engine Temperature

I will let the engine warm up to the point upon which the indication on the meter has changed from "- -" to when an actual temperature is displayed and then ride. According to the owners manual the safe operating temperature range is between 35 and 121 Celsius.

My '04 starts showing at 97F, but I let it get up to at least 120F~130F before I actually ride away. I feel better seeing the temperature go a little higher and for the oil to run through for a few minutes.
