engine temp

Hey was just wondering what is a normal bike temp....when i'm on the freeway i'm at about 155 to 170...but in town it can get up to 230...is this normal or should i be checkin some things out....i have a 96 gsxr750....I recently flushed the radiator and put engine ice in it...i think it helped a little bit but temp still climbs up theere.....am i just trippin or should i have this looked into...tomorrow i'm going to have the valves adjusted...not that the valves would cause the high heat.

you can also look into a thermostat that opens at a lower temp.

Art,
Typically the fan will kick on about 210 -220, 230 is a little high. Is your fan coming on?
When was the last time your cooling sytem was flushed /changed?

I just flushed the system about 4 days ago and yes the fan does come on...and then it will hold at that temp but it hasnt gotten up to that temp since the flush..i think the highest i've seen it now is about 215 in town...I just wish i could keep it under 200....thanks for the shock absorber Patrick...installing it today.

Engine ice? Why didn't you go with Evans? Evans works a lot better.

How do you know the water pump wasn't working?
Typically they don't go out.
