Exclamation 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

RIP PHATTY!

The RR no matter what the year of production is known to run hot
The fan comes on between 220 F and 223 F is normal
while moving an average between 175 F to 185 F is great
I see the 235 F while at long traffic lights all the time
regardless being my 03 or Miss O'Seven do i worry about
it no not really



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you

Don't even blink unless the bike gets above 240°F. You can run Engine Ice and get a little decrease in overall temps. But nothing short of straight distilled water is going to show any real change.

If you are getting really nervous you could also run a bypass switch for the fan so that way if you get stuck at a light you can flip it on prior to when it would normally come on. That way you can easily control engine temps while not moving

Might seem like a great idea but that would kill the battery within no time
Some RR's out there are having major battery issues as it is

I always hated using F for some reason. Just like using C just cause it's easier to remember. 0 C is freezing and 100 C is boiling. I forget but I thinks it's like 120 C when engine is dangerously hot and the little warning starts blinking but usually on hot days on stop and go my bike stays around 100C.
