Ok I know our rc's run hot, but im getting 214 cruising on hwy at constant speed and I didnt use to see over 190ish, also I tried Watter wetter, it didnt help. While axding Watter I also notice some strange debris in coolant like tiny kind of pink pieces of rubber maybe, is this waterpump seal or something. Thanks for any info
I see normal 205-225 temps here in Boulder. I am going to install a couple Spal fans and a switch as a backup. May be the easiest way of controlling your issue if the obvious options arent there (leaks etc.)

Same here. I ride in outdoor temps ranging from 60 to 95F degrees lately this summer. If I'm working my bike, like up hills or anything above 5000 rpm's, 210 - 220 is what I always see. If going downhill, and under 5000 rpm's, 185 - 200 is normal. That's in this warmer summertime weather. And with the lower-temp switch mod and fresh engine ice.
Riding here in Southern Alabama I've been able to keep mine under 220° with 100°+ weather and 90% humidity. Did a fresh synthetic oil change which actually helps keep temps down and did a coolant flush with AMSOIL Dominator Coolant Boost (about $11) Claims to reduce operating temps by up to 19° and seems to be working well. Had mine out today and never broke 215°. Did the same thing on my buddies 09 R1 and he says it's never ran so cool since he bought it. I'd say it's worth a try for starters as long as your fans are kicking in. Worst case you might have to live with cooked legs til it could down outside. Honda says you should only be concerned around 250° so if you're under that you won't damage the RC. Good luck!
