Default Re: 2-stroke 'over heating' myth...

i agree. i've ridden bikes all day in 100 degree heat with no probs.

the only time i blew a headgasket wasn't from overheating, it was from not letting it warm up and going full throttle right away in 40 degree weather. and it was probably my fault for neglecting the bike. if i woulda checked the head nuts, it probably woulda been fine, but i was working a lot of nights and riding the bike everyday for 3 miles each way to work.

but i wouldn't let a bike idle all day in the heat, though...
