I have been all over the place and the bike has always run hot. 105 degrees coming into LA the bars were maxed out. No light comes on to show it over heating only shows loss of oil presure. Asked the dealer in California and they said that there was no way to have it over heat. ? They had told me that on of the test for the BMW cop bikes was to leave it at idle all day at 100 degrees.

Usually it runs 2 bars from the top running at speeds from 75 to 90. on an 80 degree day. Runs hotter when I go slow like 5 to 10 mph.

I did take it to my dealer here in Denver and they shot the oil cooler with the gauge and we watched the temperature go up then down when the oil cooler kicked in. Not sure what to think.
