My biscuits are burned!!! WTF is up with this bike? - May 3, 2010, 11:10 AM

Had to add a relay switch because the cat I bought it from didn't, and while I was digging around under the plastic, I noticed that the vents weren't even connected. mkay... got lights working and hit the road.

There is something wacked going on with the temp on this bike. The guage showed running 170-185 when moving, up to 210 when idling in traffic which seems ok, but it was still hot, like OH MY GOD MY ASS IS ON FIRE hot. I had to kick my legs out periodically so that my boots didn't melt to my legs. I had to stand up every now and then to make sure my goods didn't melt together into on big lump of charred flesh. There is something making it very very hot in the cockpit section. Not normal, riding on a hot day heat, but like sitting with your legs wrapped around a wood burning stove hot (not that I know what the feels like....)

Does anyone have any ideas what is causing this? The temp never got up to 220 so I am thinking its ok the fan didn't come on, but why is the heat not dissipating? HELP me PLEASE!!!

Going from the R6 (side mount exhaust) to the Duc (twin undertail exhaust) was like turning on the oven. At least on the R6 only one leg would get hot. The Duc roasts my calves and thighs like a Guapos rotisserie!

Donno what to say ... it sound normal .. you can always open the radiator cap, and burp the throttle SLOWLY keeping the temperatures below 180F .. this will remove air bubbles if there are any

1st off I LOL's reading your description of your ass burning

2nd...Honda's run hot. When we were out yesterday my bike was hitting 213-15. Not sure if you saw me flapping my legs like butterfly wings, trying to get some air

Problem solved!

My last CBR didn't cook my junk like this, but maybe my junk was more accustomed to hotter temperatures then?
