Just wondering how hot your engine gets.

Mine has gotten over 216 degrees F.

Is this normal?

Yeah that's normal. When it's about 70-80 outside and I'm curising it runs around 170-180F. When I stop it climbs, depending on how long I sit. After awhile it hits 212 or so and the fan kicks on, then shuts off at 210.

i live in florida and it'll typically be around 187 cruising but in traffic it'll stay around 210-214. i never realized how hot my leg gets either until the other day.

use some water wetter

here in northern cali, my bike runs at 167 degrees when cruising. i put in 6 oz. of Redline's Water Wetter and it helped out a little bit. try some of that stuff if you want to keep your engine running a lil cooler. good times!
