low temperature???

My bike has started reading about 100 degrees below normal in most situations. It begins registering on the guage at about 40 degrees and climbs steady till it averages about 80-85 degrees when running, and then will go up into the 90's when idling for a while. Temperature sensor???

Re: low temperature???

Sounds like it thinks its a euro blade as those temperatures would be correct if it was reading in degrees celcius!

Re: low temperature???

The US 'blade can be switched to celcius mode too. Sounds like yours got switched... I don't remember which button does it, but check your owner's manual on how to change it back.

Re: low temperature???

I don't have an owner's manual but I do have a service manual. I don't see anything about switching to celsius in the service manual. Can anyone out there with an owner's manual educate me?

Re: low temperature???

No, that is not low temperture. In fact you just explained my temp readings. Those temps are the correct readings for Euro bikes or countries which use the metric system. So, it just means that the temp displayed is as mentioned, degree C and not F as it should be for you.

Re: low temperature???

To switch from F to C ore vice-versa hold the right button for 2 sec.

Re: low temperature???

OR You can just keep hitting buttons until the desired result is recieved! Who needs directions? Come on....explore! Thats the only way to learn, or to get experience, or to break something...I don't remember, one of those though The right button is the correct button to use though
