I was riding around and was caught in traffic yesterday and normally the bike runs between 3 and 4 bars on when cruising around. The bike went up to I think 6 bars with the next bar being the 1 with yellow underneath it. What temps correspond with what bars and is this normal?

The exact same thing happened to me today, went up to 6 bars. But usually it's around 3 or 4. This does not really seem normal, does anyone know what the problem is?

I don't know the temp #'s they correlate to, but its nothing to worry about.
Our bikes need air moving through the radiator to keep cool, so when you're stopped, or in stop/go traffic, it heats up quickly.
Your cooling fan will kick in before it gets to a dangerous level.
On my 02 the fan kicks in around 102 C, whatever that is in F.
