A lot of bikes burp a bit of coolant on the first few hot rides as the dealers tend to over fill them when doing initial checks and setup

If you remove the visual indicator warning you is it still a problem? Or if there isn't a sign warning you is it really a problem?
I never had a problem with my 1000R Rob, sure it got to 106ish maybe a degree higher but I never saw 110c, now, fast forward to an R1 and they don't put the fans on until 106c and back off at 103c.

I used to think that maybe if MV had started the fans at similar numbers, say on at 108c and off at 105c they would have had a bigger differential to ambient and therefore lost heat easier and a lot more people would have heard the fans come on and off and the majority of people would be happy?

MV's all gone now, still have a soft spot for MV's, waiting for MV to tick all my boxes again.

Naaaa, Mike's not like that....he's only saying it in jest.
He may own the "funny' looking BM, but he still loves MV's too
He wouldn't be here otherwise.

Hi, im in the UK....had the bike a few weeks, it does get very very hot....but its good at getting rid of the heat on the 2010 because of the bigger holes/vents in the fairing and better fans etc.

There is a bar on the digital temp guage that is its 'ideal' running temp (unsure what this is).....mine goes over this when going slow..or in traffic. - but the fans come on and blow all the heat out onto my legs instead!...the temp drops fairly quickly.

So the problem is solved.....overheat the rider instead of the bike
