Is my bike getting a little to hot?

Ok rode my bike tonight for a bit and my temp constantly stays around 225 especially when i stop.. i didnt worry much about it the last few weeks since it has been hella hot during the day when i ride it, but tonight it was pretty cool outside in the 80s and my bike would still climb to 225F and stays around 210-220 when im moving... is this normal for the gsxr's or what?

When moving at highway speeds it should go down below 200.
Is your fan coming on?

Yes!

Once you get going it should drop down to 180-190 after riding 10 min constantly

How long are you traveling on the highways??? If you been in stop and go traffic it takes a while to cool down on the highway.

Your thermostat may not be opening all of the way, creating an obstruction to flow.
Your bike should get down to 180-190 pretty quickly once you're moving.

225 is a bit high.
The fans should kick on at 217.
Make sure the radiator is clean and full, and that the fan is turning freely.
Do you have enough oil? How much oil is in the bike / what weight?
When was the last time you cleaned your air filter?

It shouldn't be that hot on the hwy....My stock motored 1000 averages 178* on the hwy. The fan will come on at 219*. I have never seen the temp get over 224* and that was in a 30 min bumper to bumper traffic jam. I would check the radiator and make sure its full and there is no air in the system. I have seen hoses between the radiator and the reservoir have pin holes that wouldn't leak fluid but would suck in air....that will wreak havok on the system. If you don't find anything wrong, check the thermostat, maybe its malfunctioning and keeping the temp too high.

The bike should be under warranty, I would get it checked.
