The temperature read-out on the gauge is what temperature exactly.

Was driving around midnight last night and thing indicated 29C!!! Like,...it was pretty nice in Mtl last night but 29C?!? Think not...

Do a search. There is a full shop manual in .pdf available around here somewhere. Really handy to have.

The temp readout tells you the temp of the air entering the engine.
and the heat radiating from you bike it's heating up that air before it enters the engine, therefore it isn't going to be ambient.

This last weekend, I checked ambient temps at each stop. My intake read 1-2 F above, pretty consistently. That seems reasonable, given that the thermometers I was comparing to were in the shade, not out by the blacktop. It did tend to spike a few degrees when I stopped, which I do attribute to engine heat.

Is there a reason I care what the air intake temp. is?????
Why not just put a damn normal thermometer on the bike.

Saving money, I'd guess (like putting budget brakes and suspension on). The fuel injection system needs to know the air intake temp anyway, so it's pretty easy to just route that up to the display.
