I was just curious what temperature your bikes get to when just running around the streets and not the open road?

Anywhere from 160-228 degrees Farenheit here in colorado. Keep it under 240 and you will be fine.

Mine runs 80 degrees Celcius moving, and pops up to 104 stopped then the fan starts up I think the most I've seen on a really hot day was 115 once. I don't do that Fahrenheit meter as I know 100 degrees Celcius is boiling, and usually the temp outside is measured this way when you see the banks post it.

The RR is known for running a lttle bit hotter than other bikes
At 220 F the fan should come on and if it does while you are
at a red light shut your high beam off till you start moving again
this will help preserve battery juice
Its normal to see temp ranging from 186 to 203 while driving in slow
traffic
Nothing to worry about unless your temp hits 240 then you got to pull over
and shut the bike off and let it cool down

My fan stop work while I was riding to work last in the mouning. It was about 60 degrees. I was rolling a my temps was @220 It freaked me out because it was sort of cool @6:00 in the mourning. When I got to work I check it and my fan was not coming on. so I had to run a switch to it to make it to the dealership. I took it straight there from work. i guess I wire wrong because I thought it suppose to blow air to the radiator but I ? it suppose to draw the heat from it. When got in traffic from work it was in the 80's close to the 90's My temp was climbing like crazy so I had to hit the shoulder just to keep some air coming in but it was all hot and dry air outside that day. When I got to the street where the dealer is my temp reach 252 degrees. It scared the **** out of me because the red light came on then the gauge started blink @ me so I had to go around some cars to get a little wind, then it hit 256 and that was it and about 3min from the dealer then but it was long line of traffic and red light so I had to turn down side and get some are quick the temp when down enough for me to make it to the dealership. My bike is still @ the shop now. They said that the fan was unplug. That was bull because I checked the voltage there and there was none when you first turn on the bike the fan comes on the goes off, the fuse was good. So I asked him where was it unplugged @ and he could tell me. Unless it came loose on the other side near the thermostat. I didn't check that but, i will find out when I got and pick it up.

fan kicks on at 220, mine sees 220 almost everytime i ride in traffic, I dont think its a big deal... Id probably get more nervous if I was in the 230-240 range

Mine gets up to about 232 everyday haha but im not too worried about it. The ECU will shut the motor off way before any heat damage has a chance to occur. I'll mix up and throw some Water Wetter in there when im not so lazy.

On o3-o4's the fan kicks on at 220 but on the o5-o6's i think its at around 212. I would always watch my o3 kick on at 220 but i think my new o5 kicks on around 212. I thought that was interesting, they must of had overheating problems with the 1st gen 600RR's ...

Even with Engine Ice my temps get up to 220+ while in local street traffic. On the highway I hover at like 172-176 (it was about 83 degress that day). When my mids and lowers where off my temps didn't climb fast at all even in local traffic. The temps climb slower with the Engine Ice for sure. I think you'd notice a big difference with Engine Ice if you were doing trackdays.

When i flushed my coolant on my 954 and filled up w/ a Water Wetter mix I noticed a HUGE difference. Kept the temps at least 10 - 15 degrees cooler than with just coolant. Maybe it's more noticeable in really hot conditions like here in Phoenix ...
