Whilst travelling bike runs fine at around 82 deg,whilst in slow moving traffic or stood on tickover the bike takes around two minutes to reach 100deg at which point the fan cuts in,i am wondering if this is normal for this model,to me it seems to be a short time to reach 100 deg

Re: daytona 955i running hot
That is quite normal - these bikes run very hot and will typically reach temp where fan kicks in (103 deg C) while bike is sitting at idle, even if not particularly hot weather. Needs good airflow through the rad to keep the temp down. Fortunately, when fan comes on it lowers the temp quite quickly.

Hi Graham, I am sorry you can't find the first and best tool you ever bought for your Triumph but despair not for a mere $10 you can download another one. For more information about your issue, please visit the websites below. Good luck and have a nice day. DOWNLOAD 2004 Triumph Daytona 955i
What you are describing is absolutely normal. I wouldn't worry about it at all. you may find in cooler days the temp might come down a few degrees with the fan on, but on average to hot days it will stay high in traffic. Travelling on the open road you should find the temp ranges between 80 and 90 which will show that you thermostat is working ok ( opens at 82 degrees c )
Use 10/40 synthetic or semi-synthetic MOTORCYCLE oil. Don't be tempted to use slightly cheaper car oils as these are designed for use with dry clutches and contain 'friction modifiers' which make the oil slippier to help the car engines run more economically. These will make the clutch slip on powerful bikes which have a 'wet' clutch running in a bath of engine oil. You can get away with car oils in less powerful bikes.
Sounds to me that your battery my be slight low on charge, try charging it up. Running the bike with a low battery can cause havoc with the stator as well as the pulse coil, those are two things you don't want to be replacing. Hopefully this helps you out.
Engine management light was on permernantly after replacing battery, took advice and let bike idle until thermo fan started, turned bike off and let thermo fan stop, restarted bike and engine management light went off. this proceedure resets engine management system. GREAT ADVICE thanks.
I have just found my 30 amp fuse blown on my daytona , this prevents the alternator working , it was reading 10.9v before I changed the 30 amp fuse , now it reads 14.5 volts , I think I blew it as I didnt know how to put the alarn into service mode and left the ignition on , anyway I am hoping its just that , 3 heat up/cool down cycles and the engine management light should go out
