Yes MotoQ, Although I had this bike for about one month now, but I fell some kind of different engine temp when I change the maps on my PCIII, especially I am riding my bike in the summer (and the summer in my country means 40 c and above!!!)

Until now, I didn't come into conclosion of which map will be the best for my weather, but I am keeping trying.

If your noticing a change it temperatures, especially higher temperatures, you may be running too lean. Get it mapped with an O2 sensor so you know where your A/F ratio is. Stop guessing unless you have enough money to buy a new motor.

Normal. It'll run at 100-105 in traffic on hotter days etc, but if it's running at 100 on a freeway etc, you need to get it sorted out. Normal , riding with no cars in front etc, it should be aroun 80-90.

For us SAE people in the states that's 100-105C (212-221F) and 80-90C (176-194F).

b/c last nite (no sun), was around 15c outside temp and when i was idling, i still went up to 106c then went down coz of my fan. So it was kinda strange.. maybe i didnt notice the temp on my bike when it was stock. but yes, when my bike is running, temp is around 85ish - 90c ish. and when bike is idling, regarding nite or day, its goes up to 106c - 108c (but fan turn on at 104c) and it goes down slowly.

Your MIL light (Warning light) doesn't come on until 120 so you should be fine as long as you're no where near that high.

how long is it sitting there idling for? If it runs up that high straight away you may wanna get it checkout.

it doesnt hit that high right away, it goes up one by one, Bike idling maybe for a good 1-2 mins before it hits that high. (maybe i should put in water wetter).

nah it's normal. Forget it. leave the thing idling and they're always gonna go rise in temp. Just forget it and ride.
