So i just picked up a 12 Street Triple and i was wondering what temp (bars) is normal for you all. I just hit 100 miles yesterday. I read in the manual that 3-5 bars is normal, yesterday and today I was running 5-6 bars (it was 90*+ yesterday and about 65 this morning when i road in). Yesterday was mainly city driving and today was freeway to work at about 75. Is this normal for you all or is that running a bit hot? Any input is appreciated!

My bike only ever sees 3-5 bars while its warming up. Given the amount it rains in UK (vehicles might as well have snorkels as standard) 5 bars might be normal in the bikes home country.

Mine (in the UK) runs at 5 bars steady as long as it's moving. Another bar often appears when it's stopped in traffic.

From one newie to another, this is the type of information in the owners manual. PM me if you'd like a copy of it.
