My bike's temperature after an hour or so of normal riding is usually slightly above 200. However this morning after an hour and half of pretty hard riding, the tempeature was 155. Granted that today was a little chilly (high 30s)is this normal? Can the outside temperature have such an impact on temperature? I would have expected it to be at least low 200s.

I was on the Turnpike doing 100+ the other day and it was around 150.

The outside temp definitely has that drastic effect.

I was out yesterday, and my temp was only 1/4 to 1/3 of the way up the gauge most of the time. 500s run cool, but that was cooler than usual. I figured its pretty normal given the cool air.

I guess the outside temp does have such an effect, I intially thought something wrong with my guage.

Btw, for high speed runs nothing better than the turnpike on an early weekend morning, completely empty.

out side air temp has a huge effect on the temp your bike will run, and preformance.

outside air has a direct impact on your bikes operating temperaturs, we could almost call them cold blooded like reptiles! But yes, very normal. These bikes don't really like the cold too much.

and when your @ "high rpms" it usually means your moving which also means your getting air flow throught the radiator which also means the coolant is cooling down..
