40 degree outside, after a pretty lengthy freeway run it's idling at the offramp and it's running 210 and then as it sat there climbed to 240 degrees. Does that seem reasonable or too hot? I've always thought 200 was about max for most motors.
Did your fan come on? How long idling? Sounds a little too warm. My bikes get up there but during a long slow/hard climb in hot weather.
