The SZR has all sorts of clever gadgets that my SR is lacking - electric start, for example, a fuel light, mirrors and a meter for measuring the spicyness of your Mexican food (but I haven't worked out where to insert the taco). I also has a guage that was supposed to be removed at predelivery - I know it isn't permanent because it's labelled "Temp". This gauge never registers above 45degC. Even after a serious caning on the backroads near Warnambool it sat on 45 - still in the "blue" zone. Reading the SZR forums tells me that this is a "feature" of the bike. It is over-radiated. To give you an example, I rode the bike for about 20km to warm up the oil for an oil change and dropped the contents of the tank (its a dry sump). The oil was cool enough that I could dip my fingers in and hold them there - hot bath temperature, but not uncomfortable. On the SR, that would give me serious burns. I'm a bit worried about this (under-temperature), so I've blanked off 2/3 of the radiator (yes, seriously) and the gauge now reads 80deg - midway between the 40-50 (cold) and the 110-120(hot). This morning, riding in from Bacchus Marsh it sat at 60-70, yesterday idling in traffic it crept up to 100 before dropping back to 80 once I got moving. This is a big single, watercooled, fairly loose tolerances (from what I've read). Do these seem like reasonable temperatures?
