Default Re: Optimum Ambient Temperature For Motor When Riding

Does anyone know the typical temperature of the engine block right after riding? I just installed some small rubber pieces between the fins to see if it actually helps with the engine noise but I was curious if it would hinder the cooling. Right now, it's not very hot here in FL but, it'll get hotter from what I hear.

The hottest temperature that I saw with my temp pointer was 240 degrees. I didn't think that this was too bad, but like I said, it was fairly cool. Just curious if anyone else has an idea on what temp their engine typically runs. I think the rubber actually did help the engine quiet down a little. I'm keeping them in for now.

thanks for any input.
