Running temperature of bike during racing?
Bit of background, 2004 600RR - standard radiator, standard motor, yoshi full system, PCIII that mostly has a custom map etc. Now the question, my bike has always run hot on the track but it seemed to be even worse on Sunday when the air temp was about 32C (that's 90F). My bike was running around 115C (240F) down the straight which is VERY high but obviously this had a bit to do with the outside temp. My bike technician has advised me to install a bigger radiator because the standard ones just can't cope. Have any of you done this or added the secondary (underneath radiator)? How much did it help?
Also, what temp do you guys run when you're full taps at the end of a long straight just before braking?
