Do you leak coolent or you bike makes a wierd sound at 220 F? My old 998 would do that. I was wondering if the new one will too?tbeard said:Mine has hit 220 F but I live in Florida. That was also in stop and go traffic. On the interstate it stays about 190 F
Mine's hit 220 a few times in traffic with no leaks or noises. I'm hoping I can say the same in the middle of the AZ summeransman said:Do you leak coolent or you bike makes a wierd sound at 220 F? My old 998 would do that. I was wondering if the new one will too?
No higher than any of the other water cooled Ducs. And, you only see these temps in stop & go traffic.suryad said:Those are pretty high temps. I guess these bikes are truly meant to be moving constantly to get rid of all the heat being produced. Would make sense.
It did make some strange noise when the fans would turn on but the dealer fixed that. There was a cable houseing touching one of the fans. Other than that it worked as well as a stalling bike should work at that temp.ansman said:Do you leak coolent or you bike makes a wierd sound at 220 F? My old 998 would do that.

Wow, paranoid, aren't you? Relax, temps normally fluctuate a lot. I've had mine vary what I consider a very large amount but unless I have it not heating up at all (which can't happen) or overheating, I'm not going to lose any sleep over it. All are doing it because it is normal. I'm more concerned with things like rear tire mileage and what I'm going to replace it with.B1098S said:On the highway I get this

I find this way too cold. If I go into traffic or land roades it gets higher but on the highway it really goes way down, try it,
ALL ARE DOING IT and I FIND THIS AN ISSUE.
My old RC51 normally ran 225 F in stop and go traffic and it never skipped a beat. 1098 is running around 190F and it was about 80F ambient today.FirstDuc-1098 said:boy 200-220 F seems awful high. Does anyone make a lower temp thermostat? or a more efficient fan?
