Hey guys/gals,
Have a quick question. As a new member and new 10R owner , hence my newbie rating, I have a newbie question. What is a good temperature to look for on my temperature gauge while riding during normal operation? My previous bike was an '84 Yamaha Vision KZ550 so it didn't have any of these cool features. I just want to know what to look for JUST IN CASE. Thanks.

Don't be alarmed when summer rolls around and you see 220 on a regular basis. The temps climb really fast on this bike.

rollin along: bout 190. sitting in traffic dont shut it off till you see 228 or so. the bike gets hot quick doin slow rolling burnouts so make shure you keep an eye on it in those new tire situations

I saw 214 at 67deg today. Of course that is at a stop sign. This bikes temp really climbs when at a stop. In the summer on some looooong signals I just shut it off. My next mod is going to be the after market Muzzy fan and am also going to look into different coolant combo's.
