over heating 03'cbr 600rr

hi all just got my bike on the road couple weeks ago and has been fine.Yesterday it was about 85 and i was in stop and go traffic and bike started running really hot and my oil light and temp light came on.My temp went up to 124 celcius and light was blinking.Ive read on here that hondas commonly overheat alot but im still concerned.I got out of the traffic and bike cooled down slowly and oil light went off, but as soon as i had to stop at a light the temp started to climb rapidly and oil light came back on around 120celcius.Has anyone else had this problem?

dunno. it makes sense that you get really hot in traffic, i'll jump up to 220 F at times, but once you get rolling the air cools you down. that's strange that you would go up that high though.

only thing i can suggest is your coolant level/age and how long ago did you change your oil?

flush your coolant and replace with engine ice.

but regardless, i would flush.

maybe an oil change too. oil light on has nothing to do with hot temps

Check that your fan is working - it should have kicked in at 104 degC and stopped the temp from rising about 110 degC.

the engine temps get a lot higher when standing still, but shouldnt be that high.

check ur fan, and time to flush the coolant.

Agreed. If your fan is not coming on (and really, 85* outside and you're getting 120's? I suspect it ain't workin') you need to get that figured out, or take the long way to work in the morning.
