Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

First post on the board...
Had a few bike temperature questions today in regards to my 2007 CBR1000RR.

Granted... it was HOT today (95 degrees) but my bike was hitting temps that I feel are way too hot for the weather.
At one point I glanced down and was seeing 240 degrees. Fan was just cranking away and I could feel it blowing heat. This was while sitting in traffic...
Once I hit the highway it quickly went back down to 180 degrees.
I'm afraid that it would have continued to keep going up if I had been at the light for awhile.
Anything I should be worried about?
I'll admit I haven't checked the coolant levels but I do know that the coolant overflow tank/bottle is half full.
I'm planning on changing out collant this week at some time to get rid of it as a possibility.
Anything else I should check?

Thermostat could be stuck closed which will prevent the coolant from circulating.
It's also possible the system has air caught in it I guess. The water pump can't pump air.
It might even be that it overheated at one point and spat out a bunch of coolant so it might just be running low.
Water Wetter or Engine Ice might be helpful as well.

My 07 1000RR behaves the same. It heats way up when sitting traffic on a hot day. I saw mine once almost reach 250F sitting still. Once I started moving, the temperature came down. Eventually settling at 180F down the road. If the thermostat was sticking, the temperature would never settle back to 180F.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

I don't know anything about farenheits so I was assuming the poster is indicating that his bike is actually overheating.
If it isn't overheating then I wouldn't worry about it.
I've seen 121C on the 929 on the track before it spat all the coolant out.

If it was stuck closed, then it would not have cooled down to 180 degrees once they started moving again.

Air is a possibilty though. If they are going to flush the system, it doesn't make much sense for them to try and diagnose if it has air or not.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

Thanks so far for the replies. I won't freak out or anything then. I'm just used to my old F4i that would never go above 220.
Like I said; for the summer I do plan on going to water/water wetter and changing out later in the year back to the traditional antifreeze.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

My bike ususally reads around 180* riding and can climb way up there. Your bike sounds normal. The fan kicks on about 220 or so on mine and will stay there until I start moving.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

Personally, I would shut my bike off once it hits 240F. Don't wanna crack the engine.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

hrm, i've never had a bike keep climbing for more than 3 or 5 F when the fan kicks on... if the fan kicks on at 220 and it's reaching 240, personally i would be concerned.

Re: Bike Temp Of A 2007 CBR1000RR

my 2006 CBR1000RR is having the same problem. temperature is getting up from 250 to 260F when waiting at an intersection.

The thermostat valve could be sticky. I think item number 2 in this drawing is the only thing that I need? anyone have suggestions?

At that sort of temperature I'd expect the relief valve to blow dumping coolant to the reservoir. Is this happening?
If you suspect the thermostat then remove it and see if it helps.
