what is normal coolant temp?

my 05 cbr1000rr in traffic in southwest florida gets up to 230-235f. ive changed the coolant to engine ice didnt notice a difference. where should it be? i think its too high wondering if the thermostat is going bad or not opening all the way. this is my first bike with any thing other then just a light.
thank you

Get away from traffic




Now that is funny, living here is south FLA the only way that is possible is Sunday morning at like between 6am and 8:30am.


Oh by the way that temp is normal, the fan kicks on at 225F' perfectly normal for Florida's heat and humidity.

Life is what happens when you are making plans!

Not really. I'm in Ft. Lauderdale and we stay out of traffic by riding to the right areas to ride. Get on I-75 north. Lots of exits to take you east into the rural areas. We do it every Sunday, 200-300 miles. No traffic. It just depends on where you ride. South Florida isn't the best, but there ARE a few nice rides if you know where to go. I'd be happy to suggest if you're interested.

Gets pretty bad in Chicago too. I've seen mine get that hot plenty of times in summer traffic. Lane splitting usually helps knock it down a few numbers, but that's dangerous and should never be done.

I used to think my '08 ran hot but apparently hot is the new cool. Typically 200-225 unless its cold out, then its sub-200.

Switched up my coolant to water wetter. Noticed about a 5-7 degree drop in traffic. Was in the 228-233 range before and now it hovers right around 220.


As for driving around FL in the early morning hours just be aware of Dante Stallworth...

Arizona owns my '08 as well. Upwards of 230 in traffic. However, just saw a writeup on a manual fan switch would could help!

as long as you're below 240, i wouldnt even bother looking at it... above 240, id start looking for a place for it to cool off, and check if your fan is working.
