  • Average temp

  • Sometimes higher if sitting in traffic

  • oh lol good, I was like uhh I have seen mine at 248. Damn Georgia heat.

  • Thats not good !

  • See, that's what I'm talking about......... The cooling fan should come on at 212 ish. If you see more than 220 ever, it's a big issue. The cooling fans on these bikes go out often. Do you hear it come on at all?????

  • Highest mine ever got was 224 and that was after running then turning off and then starting back up 5 mins later

  • Yeah that's a normal heat soak. That 248 though, bad shit.

  • My fan always comes on, but when the 248 happen it was a few days before my bike went in for service, ask the yamaha guys. They said in the temps GA hits its not uncommon.. that said it gets much over 250 though you should pull over. Soo I been under the impression its ok if factory trained said so. Out here in Utah its never gone much over 215 on hot days, but as I said ... 95 plus degrees, 2 hours in stop n go traffic...

  • 197 to 212

  • Sounds like I'm in good shape then. I'm used to my old klr with a needle that hung out at about half and when it climbed a bit the fan would come on and it would drop.
