Bike is running a little cold??? - September 4, 2008, 09:08 AM

My bike holds between 170-180 degrees.. Even when I run it super hard it doesnt go about 185 usually..

Most people I see run about 210-220..

My bikes an 01 r6, sprockets, full exhaust, and i BELIEVE a jet kit.

Ive had it run around 200 degress on 1 ocasion.. it was about 100 outside and i was beating the death out of my bike.. The thing ran so much smoother and felt like it was pulling alot harder.. I realize the jet kit, and if it was dyno tuned for something could effect that, but could my bike always running that cold effect it as well??

Going 35 in 6th gear? IMO that sounds like a good thing, but I'll leave it to the experts.

lol no.. I tend to keep it under 4-5k if im cruising.. just because it tickles my taint if not (jokes of course)..

i would think so also but i didnt know if the whole carb and jets thing would be different.. also the fact that the bike comes up off ground a good bit when it was running hot as appose to just coming up 4-5 inches.. so it def pulls alot harder

mine runs between 175-185 dpending on outside temp. Only time it gets up beyond is when Im sitting in traffic, and it ususally stays within that range even when pushing it. I havent noticed any difference in performance between temps. I run distilled H20 and water wetter most of the year.

Im sure all of that doesnt help at all but I think the cooler it runs the better as far as wear and tear on parts
