    Default Engine temp

    Just wondering what temp these bikes (mainly 888) usually run at out on the open road?? Had mine out for the first good run since buying it last year, Was hovering around 90ish maybe 95, Does this sound about right??

    Cheers Jack

    Yup...............summer in traffic can show above 100 degrees f. Heat soak after a long blast can go higher.

    It sounds a on the high side to me, at what temp' does the fan cut in?
    These motors give their best performance at around 80-85 degrees C, the cooling system is designed to keep it at that temp' when used hard.

    Sounds a bit high to me also ...I agree with Steve R..... time to check your cooling system.....might be worth changing your coolant if it hasn't been changed in a while,and check your thermostat.
