I have been unable to find answers in the manual or online to some initial questions I have, so I hope you can help:
  • What is the idle speed for my bike (I believe it's around 1,300 RPM)?
  • What heat range should the engine be in during normal operation?
  • At what temperature does the fan come on?
Thanks in advance.

Thanks in advance.
1. between 1000-1300rpm.
2. prob. 180-190deg
3. around 227deg. or so
2 & 3 are from my ZRX so it may be a bit different but i dont think all that much.
:wink:

Thanks QKENUF4U, but regarding your answers to 2 and 3, my manual says when the engine gets to 120+ degrees the warning LED lights up and I must cease operation.

I'm just curious to know as my temp gauge got to just over 100 last night (I was in slow moving traffic at the time though), but then it dropped quite dramitcally once I got moving again, so maybe the fan came on then. :?

:oops:

I didn't even register how different the figures were!

At least I know my engine's operating normally. :D

Thanks you two.
