The manual  claims thermostat opens up fully at 203F (95C).
How hot can watertemp get without creating worries? I raced at 130F ambient/ 110F airtemp last month and saw some pretty high numbers.....

The fans dont even kick in till about 220, so it shouldnt be a problem running 220 or 230 all day long, I dont think its 'overheats' till 240-250ish.

I have ridden in 115 degree temps and been in stop and go traffic for some of that and never seen any temps to worry about. The manual doesn't indicate there should be any concern until the 250s.
The motor doesn't seem to mind the high temps but it sure creates a blast furnace effect on your legs!!!!!
