engine temps on hott days
well as we all know its been getting really hott latley and this summer is going to be the hottest yet...
so heres my story:
so today it was about 95 degrees i rode today and was forced to take the streets.. most of it is stop and go due to all the damn traffic lights here in socal.. so while im sitting at the lights im just keeping an eye on the engine temp... i think the highest i seen the temp get today was 235 degrees... i know that crazy hott... usually on the freeways i run anywhere from 170-185 and street riding on a normal day im usually at 210- 220. but as of now im going to invest in some water wetter or engine ice or some kind of coolant... cause 235 is waaaaayyy too hot for my liking... kinda makes me nervous.. but let me remind u i was at a high 220's and while at the light i hit 235.. then the light turned green and as i accelerated the air flow took it back down to 220..
so my question to every one is:
how high has ur engine temp climbed too... just kinda curious what kind of numbers u guys are dealing with... weather its hott days at the track or just cruising the streets ... and what kinda of damage can be done with ur engine at that type of tempiture...
thanks in advance for any input, advice, or comments
I forget my balls every trackday. thats why im level 1 fo life, ninja!
