Oil temperature numbers anyone?
I have the 10r motor in a road race car. I've recently run it pretty hard (1:51s at Thunderhill) and after a few different cooling methods got the temps in the pan down to about 280-290. I'd like them to be cooler and am working on that. I'm using Redline synthetic 40 wt, which I also ran in my older zx10 with great results. In the mean time, does anyone know what their oil temps are while running the bike hard and/or in hot weather, 90+ degrees?
I'm told that as long as the water temps are under control, under 185-190, that unless the oil gets excessive (?) not to worry too much. Any comments?
