My system has only reached 224F once, and that was due to a poorly patched hole in the left radiator by the previous owner/bozo.
After I fixed the cooling system, its been working fine.
My engine will get to 221F in stop & go traffic, but will cool down quickly to around 205-208F once moving.
When briskly moving in the city, it will hover around 205-208F.
If I ride in country, I often see sub-200F and I've seen 179F one morning.
The critical temperature is 251F where the temp indicator will start to blink on the panel.
Pull over and cool that engine down immediately when that occurs.
It's interesting how sensitive the cooling system is.
I've been riding along on a country road and pass under a shade tree and immediately see a 1F drop in temp before it returns.
