Engine / Coolant temp
« on: June 15, 2017, 10:29:14 AM »
First ride on XR yesterday and the weather here was very warm ... Just wondered what the normal or usual running temperature is as it soon got to 100 when I had to slow down in traffic. No warning lights appeared and the fan was on it just seemed to quickly reach that temp. The Blade  I had obviously reached this temp but didn't seem to as quick or maybe I just didn't notice it other than that the bike runs fine .

Mine gets to 103-104 in traffic, gets there pretty quick but cools pretty quickly once you get going again, pretty much the same as my Tuono but cools down quicker.

Depends how fast I'm going and what traffic is in front of me, 70mph in clean air it runs about 75, behind other traffic at the same speed is 80ish.

The fan doesn't seem to kick in until about 100 so I reckon that's not 'too hot'...

Jockser does your XR quickly get to 100 when you get behind traffic, the fan on mine also kicks in at about 100.

TBH I don't ride much in traffic, it's mostly minor roads
And I don't watch the temp religiously
But I can tell you the temperature does rise quickly from ambient
And anytime the fan kicks in that I look at the gauge it's always at or very near the 100 mark

Hi, I have had several S1000RR's and now a S1000XR. All these engines get quickly to a 100-103. Than the fan starts to work and it stays around that temperature.
When driving on 'normal ' conditions: not too hot, normal speeds and not behind a big trucks. It is most around 75-90.
Stopping on a hot day? Yep before you looked it is up again.

Nothing to worry about. As I said ALL S1000 engines have the same behavior.

Since I ride mostly in the San Diego area - I don't have to deal too much with temp issues, however I do venture into the Desert - as I have the last 2 weekends.  Temps in the 101 to 102F and the XR quickly gets to 218 degrees.  Even when traveling at speed on freeway - it is very easy to obtain 216 F.  As you move into cleaner air away from traffic it cools back down to 200 to 205.  We are going to get hit with a heat wave this weekend and temps well over 105 near by - plus I have a trip in July crossing through Death Valley and the Mojave desert.  I'm thinking seriously about adding Water Wetter or Engine Ice or the like.  Makes me have to wear protective pants UNDER my riding pants to keep from baking my calves.
