I have a 03 600rr I live in Utah and it's over 100° during the day I'm not concerned with my temps at night more so day riding idle I'm at over 220-Max I've seen 240° city riding I'm 220° all the time, highway I'm 200-220° if I put a 05 600rr radiator with engine Ice will that help or are these 03 cursed with super high temps bc I see it's a common issue but most are not at my temps I have no coolent leaks/overflow overheat light has never came on. Could it be my temp sensor also? The bike as 20,000 miles fan kicks on at 221°f tested the thermostat to it fully opens at 190°f, can I or where can I find a cooler thermostat? Thanks for your time guys!!!

Sounds normal. There's really nothing you can do to change it more than a few degrees. I had an 03 in LA for last year. It was the same temps as yours during the summer, 220-230. It hit 240 a few times at stop lights.

It would have to be something major like a bigger radiator or an oil cooler to do anything. Or a few good vents in the fairings.

Yeah my 03 runs same temps. They just run hot. I've tried different coolants and have had no luck. Learned to live with it....
