(I cannot remember how many dumb questions I have asked you guys but this is the next one. :roll: ) I commute my Hornet 600 between Ferntree Gully and Yarra Junction. I notice that on the trip home that the tank feels warm to my knees. This did not happen with the same trip on the old girl (CB 250). So, is this normal for the Hornet 600? I have not ridden a water cooled bike before. I do not think it is the sun heating up the tank. Sure the black tank sits in the sun all day but so did the 250's black tank. And it does not feel particularly warm as I leave town. Another thought is that I sit a lot closer to the tank on the Hornet. Also the tank is considerably smaller so it might be more likely to warm up. Or is it just the effect of all that hot water? According to the gauge she is running within an appropriate range of temperatures.
