Those are normal temps if C. If F, those are way low and there is something wrong with your temp gauge. 180-220F is normal, depending on what thermostat your bike has.

Causes overheating


I HAD the same problem, fixed it. From my experience this is what you're going to do:

1. At cold start, see if the condenser fan or the radiator fan turns on right away. If yes, replace the Fan Control Module ($100 original). A/C and motor fan should only come on when temp is "normal", meaning the needle in the temperature gauge sits in the middle.

2. If the radiator fan does not come on when temp level needle reaches the middle of the gauge, your motor is dead and that's why you overheat pretty quickly. Replace radiator motor ($70 replacement). Or you can check if the motor is working by directly powering it from the battery. Use small cable jumper ($2 at Walmart)

3. Replace thermostat ($14 with thermostat gasket)
4. Drain existing coolant and put in new one.

Most of the time its the radiator fan that goes out pretty quickly due to faulty fan control module (that little black box that attaches to the fan assembly hood on the driver's side near the battery). I did all the repairs and saved a ton of labor cost. Its easy, just search it on youtube and they will show you how to do it. The solution I gave is what fixes mine.

Good Luck!

About the only thing that it could be is a dirty coil,or some one over charge the system, I have seen just a layer of dust cause the compressor to cycle off to its thermal over load. Clean the coil.

I just replaced thermostat and veh still running hot?Why?


hello tbrink. most likely your water pump is not running like it should resulting in it running hot. To test it do this: Get your car up to operating temperature, run the A/C. Once the temp is about 80-85 deg. Park it and let it sit idling with the A/c on for about 5 minutes, then turn the car off. let the car sit for about 5 minutes with the engine off. Then turn the ignition so that the temp gauge registers. You will probably see it spike to over 100 because the car has been sitting with a hot engine and no coolant flowing through to take away the heat. Note the temp, then start the engine. If the temp doesn't come down to normal within about a minute, then you probably have a bad pump. When functioning properly, as soon as the car is cranked the pump will move enough coolant through the head to drop the temp very quickly.

How can you tell if the water pump is bad?


Hello jcs... Usually the water pump squeals loudly and there is water on the ground under the car. For the definitive test, get the car up to operating temperature, run the A/C. Once the temp is about 80-85 deg. Park it and let it sit idling with the A/C on for about 5 minutes, then turn the car off. Let the car sit for about 5 minutes with the engine off. Then turn the ignition so that the temp gauge registers. You will probably see it spike to over 100 because the car has been sitting with a hot engine and no coolant flowing through to take away the heat. Note the temp, then start the engine. If the temp doesn't come down to normal within about a minute, then you probably have a bad pump.

My bike is the same, It runs at exactly 100 degrees more than outside air temp, and at a light, or in stop and go traffic, it will go to 212 when the fans come on. It is like sitting on a blowtorch. But that is normal, Harley's run a lot hotter than that. Mine is an 02 S4 Ducati. Been like that since new. I avoid Daytona, the worst place on earth for bikes. They have an average of 1200 burned bikes every year. Sitting in traffic for hours, not moving. And the noise, my lord, get a stinking muffler on that pig!!! Hope this helps.

Engine temp raises prity quick when your not moving. can go to 100 degrees easy enough then drops wen you get going..


this is quite normal for a bike to do this some of the European bikes eg. gagiva and triumph run a little hotter then some of the jappers eg. triumph tt600 sits around 116 degrees (c) but to answer your question make sure your thermo fans are kicking in and out and also check coolant and overflow bottle also oil level and possibly even bleed the water pump and start bike when cold with the radiator cap off and see if the fluid is being pumped (checking if water pump is working) hope this helps buddy im actually a motorbike mechanic apprentice

Check the vent on the gas tank. Open the lid when it is hot and see if alot of pressure escapes, if so the furl tank vent is plugged and building up pressure to flood the engine.

No rear brake master cyl.full


If it has been sitting on the sidestand, the cylinders on the low side occasionally become fouled - which will clear up pretty fast or after changing the plugs. There is probably gunk in the rear caliper from sitting & dealer may want to check the fronts as well. Dealers are really expensive & I would guess that they would want $250 or so just to fix the rear brake issue. When i needed all my calipers cleaned, my dealer wanted almost $1000., so I did them myselves for about $50. Rick

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.
