Ok so got the new bike, 03 GSXR 600... Rode it home the day I picked it up and it was throwing off alot of heat, the temp went up to 106c and the fans kicked in...I was riding it like an old lady though and probably will do for some time yet, until I get used to it. But damn it was throwing off some heat! I called the guy when I got home and asked him what the normal running temp was and he said about 76, as I said I was up to 106 and the fans had kicked in. I asked him why this was and he said "bike needs air to keep it cool, at low speeds its not running enough air through it" I just putted around the block for about 10mins today at around 50-60 km/hr and the temp was already up to 88... I've checked and it is a liquid cooled bike, so is this normal for it to get so hot so quick at low speeds?
