Just curious what temp my bike should be. I noticed yesterday in traffice it was running at 221 degrees. Once I started moving again it dropped to 167ish. I suppose its normal my 221 seems high.

I know Martin

just too many newbies to the 04 are sweating over simple stuff.

I run redline in my bike over the summer time and my temp has barely risen since the mods but them again they aren't heavy mods or higher compression.

The 04's compression might add some temp to sitting at lights.

The motor on the FJR is larger, and runs slightly warmer than the R1's. However, the R1's second? fan comes on before the FJR's. This seems to me a liitle off, but thanks to input like yours then makes me realize I probably don't need to sweat other simple things like oil changes or checking the brake fluid as much, also.
