Engine Temperature

I was just curious what temperature your bikes get to when just running around the streets and not the open road?

Anywhere from 160-228 degrees Farenheit here in colorado. Keep it under 240 and you will be fine.

Mine runs anywhere from 170 to 220 when stuck in traffic.

Mine runs 80 degrees Celcius moving, and pops up to 104 stopped then the fan starts up I think the most I've seen on a really hot day was 115 once. I don't do that Fahrenheit meter as I know 100 degrees Celcius is boiling, and usually the temp outside is measured this way when you see the banks post it.

The RR is known for running a lttle bit hotter than other bikes
At 220 F the fan should come on and if it does while you are
at a red light shut your high beam off till you start moving again
this will help preserve battery juice
Its normal to see temp ranging from 186 to 203 while driving in slow
traffic
Nothing to worry about unless your temp hits 240 then you got to pull over
and shut the bike off and let it cool down



If it doesn't challange you it won't change you
Only two ways to live life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle.

212*F = 100*C

I'd pull over if I saw 116*C

My fan stop work while I was riding to work last in the mouning. It was about 60 degrees. I was rolling a my temps was @220 It freaked me out because it was sort of cool @6:00 in the mourning. When I got to work I check it and my fan was not coming on. so I had to run a switch to it to make it to the dealership. I took it straight there from work. i guess I wire wrong because I thought it suppose to blow air to the radiator but I ? it suppose to draw the heat from it. When got in traffic from work it was in the 80's close to the 90's My temp was climbing like crazy so I had to hit the shoulder just to keep some air coming in but it was all hot and dry air outside that day. When I got to the street where the dealer is my temp reach 252 degrees. It scared the **** out of me because the red light came on then the gauge started blink @ me so I had to go around some cars to get a little wind, then it hit 256 and that was it and about 3min from the dealer then but it was long line of traffic and red light so I had to turn down side and get some are quick the temp when down enough for me to make it to the dealership. My bike is still @ the shop now. They said that the fan was unplug. That was bull because I checked the voltage there and there was none when you first turn on the bike the fan comes on the goes off, the fuse was good. So I asked him where was it unplugged @ and he could tell me. Unless it came loose on the other side near the thermostat. I didn't check that but, i will find out when I got and pick it up.

Mine gets up to about 232 everyday haha but im not too worried about it. The ECU will shut the motor off way before any heat damage has a chance to occur. I'll mix up and throw some Water Wetter in there when im not so lazy.

On o3-o4's the fan kicks on at 220 but on the o5-o6's i think its at around 212. I would always watch my o3 kick on at 220 but i think my new o5 kicks on around 212. I thought that was interesting, they must of had overheating problems with the 1st gen 600RR's ...

Even with Engine Ice my temps get up to 220+ while in local street traffic. On the highway I hover at like 172-176 (it was about 83 degress that day). When my mids and lowers where off my temps didn't climb fast at all even in local traffic. The temps climb slower with the Engine Ice for sure. I think you'd notice a big difference with Engine Ice if you were doing trackdays.

When i flushed my coolant on my 954 and filled up w/ a Water Wetter mix I noticed a HUGE difference. Kept the temps at least 10 - 15 degrees cooler than with just coolant. Maybe it's more noticeable in really hot conditions like here in Phoenix ...

I've always been a bit worried about the high temperature on my bike. Especially at trackdays when my bike runs between 100 and 110 deg C (212 and 230 F). All my other bikes runs at about 85 to 95 deg C (185 to 203 F) under the same conditions.
I have heard some things that the problem can be fixed buy replacing the oilpump cover with one that has much better cooling-capabilities. Or thats what some aftermarket manufactorers claim.

The highest I have seen my 06 run (taking into consideration I am in Vegas) is 234. This was in the afternoon at the hottest part of the day, sitting at a stop light, while it was 106 - 109 degrees outside. That was the last time I was riding during the day. I was sweating for an hour after I got off that bike..... it was disgusting. I typically run anywhere from 190 - 215.

Do all the 600's run hot like the CBR6RR? I don't ever recall my ZX10R ever topping 212' F- do all the 6's run this hot because of their smaller engines and higher working revs to maintain average speeds?

170-225. if its not over 100 degrees outside the fan does a pretty good job keeping the temp below 230.
