Seems my Stryker runs much hotter than my old V-Star 1100. First liquid cooled bike I've had but I would think it should run cooler. May be just me or leg position. Is there any way to check what the bikes temp is against what it should be? No warning lights are coming on, but after a long ride my leg feels like it's been slow-cooked. :eek:

because it got to hot.
That dont sound right at all to me. With it being liquid cooled, I would think that would never happen. I would be concerned if my bike did that.

My fan does come on, just seems like there is a bunch of heat coming off on my leg while riding.

Exhaust? it gets pretty hot. if there's no lights and its running good I wouldn't worry about it. And the cooling system on this bike isn't designed to keep it cool for long idle time. especially when its hot outside it needs air flow thru the radiator more than that little fan will do. Idling is the hardest thing a motor can do.

thats how the bike is designed. If you read the manual it will shut itself off after so many minutes...I dont think it shut off bc of the temp.

Ive used water wetter before helped about 20 degrees on a buddies R1. My Rx-7 was getting to hot for my liking it was about 230-240 used water wetter and it stayed about 200-210. It does work and works good.

Next time I am at Autozone I will pick up a bottle and give it a shot. I don't forsee and issues using this in the motorcycle.
