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.

More likely to be your ignition coils. They heat up and expand this can cause an open circuit which will close up again when it has cooled down. Although, a bad charging system may cause this problem. Check the battery voltage with engine switched off ( approx 12 volts) and with the engine running (approx 14 volts) If you are getting 14 volts then your battery is dead, if you aren't, then your charging system has a fault.

The bike should be running at 180 to 190 degrees. It would be impossible for your bike to be running at 100 degrees. Your body temp is 98.6 degrees. Engines are designed to run at higher temps for better combustion.

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

I would try checking the rubber between the carb and motor for air leaks,and/or spray carb cleaner through while running with the air box open.

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

Is your fan kicking on when your bike starts to get hot?

On my cbr the fan would kick on at 215 degrees. Even sitting in traffic on a 90 degree day my bike would only get up to 220 at most.

If your fan is kicking on when its suppose to and you have your radiator filled up full then I would check your thermostat.

The thermostat is an object that opens up when your engine reaches a temperature of around 180 degrees and lets antifreeze run through your engine to keep it cool. If the thermostat isn't opening up then the antifreeze isn't circulating through your engine, its just sitting inside your radiator. And that's not what you want.

You can remove the thermostat from your bike and put it in a pan of water and heat the water up with a candy thermometer in the water and you should see your thermostat open up at around 180 degree's. Just do this on the stove. The water won't be boiling so you will be able to see it open up.

Hopefully its just your thermostat because they are very cheap(around 10 bucks).

If your thermostat is good and your fans kick on when they are suppose to then I would say its a water temp sensor or a sensor period.

I'll bet though that if you take your bike for a ride and when it gets around 215 degrees that your fan isn't kicking on to help the motor cool back down.

Hopefully this is the case and if it is you can just run the fan wires to your battery and hook up a toggle switch to turn your fans on whenever you please. This is just a bandaid fix and not fixing the real problem but it will get you by until you can fix it the right way.

Well I hope I may have been of some assistance and good luck,
Remember to check your fluid while the bike is running and warmed up completely, because if you just fill your radiator with the bike turned off it will only fill your radiator with fluid and not your motor as well(because the thermostat will be closed) which is what you want. Also after you fill your radiator when the bike is running and you can fill it any more let the bike run for a little while with the cap off to let any air in the cooling system purge out of the open radiator. You should see some air bubbles coming out of the radiator cap hole. If you have air in the system that will cause your bike to overheat as well. Had this happen on a Honda Car.


If you feel I did a good job answering your question please give me a fixya rating and THANKS!

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.
