Engine cruising temperature

I ride all the time. While cruising on the freeway, my cbr600rr 2006 temp guage reads 177-178 ish. Yesterday while riding on same freeway, my guage read 200-215. Is that a problem??

shouldn't be a problem......if you have a strong tailwind or are tailgating cars the temp can climb quickly due to reduced airflow across radiator.

Should start to drop as soon as you are in normal wind conditions......

Mine fluctuates a lot and it all depends if your in open clean air or not.

At what temperature do you have to worry about over heating issues? I have an 03 600rr.

If you start approaching 250 you should worry, as in pull over and stop the engine. The warning light on your gauge cluster will come on around there to let you know. If your fan is kicking on at 220 and the temp drops from there or a few degrees above, you're fine.

Mine's usually between 72C and 78C (162-172F)


But can flucuate according to wind, like someone said earlier

Yeah Mine usually is in the 170's when I've got open air and cruising I've never seen mine get above 220, the fan always kicks in and brings it down.

You only really need to worry if/when the fan kicks on and the temp continues to climb. Even in Texas heat and top and go traffic the fan on mine was good enough to hold the temp and stop it from climbing.

Same here, 220 is pretty much the highest I've ever seen it.

Highest I've ever seen mine was 221, but that was sitting in gridlock traffic on a 100 degree day on a highway, surrounded by other hot cars. Cruising I'm usually 170-185.
