i always just turn mine off but if i turn it right back on the temp goes up wondering if its better to let it idle to allow the oil to circulate a little???
I've never let it idle after riding... I noticed that if I let it idle for to long it will get to hot...so what's the point... I usually power down right after riding... while the temperature is still around 160 - 170...Droog said:I'm sure you all know this, but never turn a bike off unless it's at idle.
precisely. idling your bike after a ride is only going to make things hotter, not cool it down. just shut it off.downtown said:I live in an extremely hot weather and after the ride I just turn the bike off. If I let it work on neutral then temps are going up and up. I feel that it is better for the bike to be off then work at high temps in Neutral.
Thats only my opinion.
Re-read my post. I didn't say let it sit and idle for ages, just don't shut the thing off while you're revving it, or the chokes on.viper6277 said:I've never let it idle after riding...

it there any reason I should let it idle after riding to shut it down ???
Yep... well said! :yesnodJuerg said:You have to idle turbo motors (to allow the turbo to cool down) but not normal piston motors. The liquid cooling of todays motors is so good that the motor probably will be cooler after running hard than after idling...
I think you misunderstood the question man... :yesnodscud said:In other words, you shouldn't like, pin the throttle and let it bounce off the rev limiter whilst turning the key to the off position???
What the hell was the point of this thread anyway?
