Lower 03 cbr temperature

I have a 03 600rr I live in Utah and it's over 100 during the day I'm not concerned with my temps at night more so day riding idle I'm at over 220-Max I've seen 240 city riding I'm 220 all the time, highway I'm 200-220 if I put a 05 600rr radiator with engine Ice will that help or are these 03 cursed with super high temps bc I see it's a common issue but most are not at my temps I have no coolent leaks/overflow overheat light has never came on. Could it be my temp sensor also? The bike as 20,000 miles fan kicks on at 221f tested the thermostat to it fully opens at 190f, can I or where can I find a cooler thermostat? Thanks for your time guys!!!

Sounds normal. There's really nothing you can do to change it more than a few degrees. I had an 03 in LA for last year. It was the same temps as yours during the summer, 220-230. It hit 240 a few times at stop lights.

It would have to be something major like a bigger radiator or an oil cooler to do anything. Or a few good vents in the fairings.

Yeah my 03 runs same temps. They just run hot. I've tried different coolants and have had no luck. Learned to live with it....
