picked up my 750 today!

I've put 125miles on it already and i love it. I noticed it runs hotter than anything else I have ever had. What is the normal operating temp at speeds and at idle that you guys notice? I got stuck in traffic with alot of cars around me (waiting for a cop to figure out how he needed to park his cruiser to protect a group of guys working in a manhole, it was a mess) The temp shot through the roof, temp gauge was blinking and the sides of my legs were on fire. Is this common for being stuck in this amount of traffic for an extended period of time? I checked the coolant bottle when i got home and it had liquid.. any other ideas? Fans were running too

Other than that, i can't wait till i can really run her at full power!!

I just picked up my 910 yesterday and it got all the way up to 205 sitting in traffic, which I thought was a bit warm also. It does cool off almost immideatley as I start riding, and I would imagine this could improve as the engine breaks in.

Search the forum for temp or coolant or engine ice and you'll find many threads on this subject.

Basically, the bikes run hot, esp. at idle, and the fans alone cannot cool a running engine.

The temp light will blink occassionally, particularly when stuck in slow or stopped traffic, but the 'overheat' temp is quite high, and although you may spill some coolant, there have been very very few instances of actual overheating.

Just keep it moving, and the bike is happy!

I shut the bike off and paddle with my feet when the cages completely shut down. I'm not kidding- if you cant filter/lanesplit any further just kill it.

my 750 hit 235 degrees once in city traffic, coolant started spewing everywhere which caused it to smoke as well........... 910 seems to run alot cooler than the 750 model

Man, thats really disappointing. I have used that water wetter and coolant ice shit before and to no avail, but that was in a serious horsepower pushrod V8. Has anyone tried it on our bikes with success?
