Regulator Rectifier?

So after searching the forum I have come to the conclusion that I need a new R/R for my '03. I have orderd one and waiting for it to arrive. However, I have a new concearn. I noticed that while in the city and traffic is stop and go, my bike gets hotter then normal. I was stuck at a light for about 10 minutes and my temp went up to the low 240F. Is this normal? If not, is it related to the R/R?

yea temp goes up faster if your sitting still or going slow, there's no air being circulated around the engine, but 240 seems a little high, if it gets anywhere near 250 i would shut her own =/

Did the fan not kick on. Fan should be kicking on around 220F and I don't believe the RR has anything to do with the fan

the fan kicks on at 220-221F. I don't think it does either but just tryin' to exhaust all options.

you are correct, R/R just meters the amount of voltage that your stator is sending to the battery.

I would check all the cooling systems. Make sure the fans kicking on check your coolant. Does it regularly get up to 240 or just one time in stop and go traffic.

As long it was a rare 1 time I think you are good. Don't let t get up to 250+ pull over and let her cool down.

It should be able to stay around 220 with the fan on.

Im going to change my oil and coolant (it's about that time anyway) and see if that helps.

I'd pm Nico. Don't really know technically how to help from here. I know the 05-06 RR will help the starting issue and the temp problems aren't related to the RR and that he fan should kick on at 220is and should be able to hold the temp. From there not quite sure
