i wouldn't pull out the thermistat. mine seems to warm up a little faster than when it was new. she has 57,000+ miles on the ticker and i think the little small radiator is just not as efficient as it use to be when new. it use to take a few lights before i would see 225 and the fans kick on, now it is just one or two long ones.

i rarely spend much time in town doing the stop and go traffic stuff which is a blessing.

i'd like to see a "how to" on the manual switch that rocket is talking about that would be perfect!

Get some condenser coil cleaner & go to town on your radiator. Mine looked clean, but a good cleaning made a 14deg difference in idle temps & how fast the fan cooled it down.

I went for a ride from work (burpengary ) into the city last night and the bike was fine sitting around 78 to 82 untill I hit the traffic then it shot right up to 108..

I am not so worryed now knowing that someone who has the same bike and so close is getting the same temps as I do I am not running the engine ice yet eaither so wondering how much of a difference it would make..

230F - 235F is not uncommon if you ride in a hot climate and end up stuck in traffic
I've post this before, your bike will let you know when there's a problem

This is out of an '04 owners manual .
I don't have anything for the '08 and up but would
imagine the temp ranges are similar

I wouldn't worry about the owners manual so much just a bunch of general info, get a service manual instead.
You should be able to find one online that you can download for free

Okay my bike was non stop going to 227 degrees when sitting in heavy trafic in Gatlinburg TN! And everybody said thats normal when you sit long in trafic in hot weather.
Since i came bAck, there was a thread there for the dual fan mode, and i did that and now my bike never goes more that 210 in heavy trafic, and usually sits arround 200.
I still wish was this warm here like its over there. Snow is comming soon!

Sorry I forget that aus has an SA.

I am from South Africa, the best option I have seen is fan switch.

As soon as I am out the traffic, and cover some road, it goes to 80 something within seconds
