Just kinda wanted to see what the consensus is. I just got one and am very impressed! It seems to run a little hot in traffic though... I'm in Phoenix and I'm a bit worried if it is running hot at 90deg, what will it do at 110?

he means outside tempurature hes in Arizona. What is it running bike temp?
It has an LCD bar with 6 segments. When it gets to 6, a engine temp warning shows, and you're supposed to shut the bike down... It has gotten up to 5 bars while idoling and slowly moving in traffic... If only I could get 5 bars on my cell phone ;). I may just take it to the dealer monday and see what they think in the shop... The bike is so new that I have a feeling that I will be the 'lab rat' for any problems that may arrise.
I just found out that when all 6 segments are lit, the coolant temp is 248deg/F. For a bike with this kind of top-end and horsepower and racing demeanor, I wouldn't think traffic would be a problem.

THX tendar for the WW tip. I'll check into it, and talk to the dealer Monday.

She runs great... other than the temp thing... Again, it hasn't yet overheated, the gauge is just higher than I expected, I will take it to the dealer tues and see what they say... meanwhile, I have the chore of breaking her in! What a bitch, having to ride around all day ;). Gee and with the next 22 days off, what will I do?!?

I have been posting riding impressions up on the ZX-14 sub-group.
