I just bought a 2006 CBR1000RR, only 8K on the clocks, runs like a champ.

I live in the high desert, and when riding the temp is 178-180, but stopped in traffic it got
up to 237.. seems way to high.
Once I got out on the road cooled right off again.

The Fans kick on around 220, but they don't seem to do any good.

I doubt its the thermostat, because it doesn't overheat on the open road. I am wondering,
Flush the coolant, oil change might help.
Or could I go to an aftermarket fan (fans) and help cool it.

Also it was about 115 degrees that day.

Thanks in advance

Sweating in California...LOL

btw, coolant is only good for 2 years. $100 says you are still using the stock coolant... send me the $100 via paypal.

Bike may have had an open exhaust put on it with no alteration to the mapping. That will cause a lean condition which can lead to overheating.
