    Coolant temps uk

    Iím struggling to reach 65-70 deg c on my 15 mile commute which my be caused by a stuck open stat.
    What are you seeing in this ambient temp of around 4-6 deg c ?

    Mine runs about 70 when riding along A roads, but stuck in traffic on the daily commute it will get up to over 105 degrees. The fan will come on every day, whatever the weather, after about 8 miles of A roads followed by a couple of miles of stop/start city traffic.

    Yamahas generally run pretty cool on the open road. I think mine generally shows in the low 70's when the ambient is 10-ish. So I'd not be too worried.

    Went for a little ride yesterday and did a check on running temps.

    Ambient temperature 12-13deg (according to the bike's readout). Coolant 65-68 on the open road, rising to low 70's when slowing in built-up areas, then dropping back once out in the country again.

    So it looks as if yours is absolutely normal. I'd guess the thermostat is set to open around 65.
