hottest temp

had to take my rc for a run somewhere today and ended up in traffic, and the rc's love traffic ended up with the usual temp warning light flashing. temp was up to 130 degrees. just wondering the hottest temp the rc can stand b4 its a good idea to pull over and shut off the engine for cooldown.

That is waaaay to hot! 130 degrees C ~ 266 Degrees F


I would change the oil immediately and make sure the antifreeze is topped off.

the oil was was changed recently, and the coolant, i hadnt even slowed down for that long. wtf, its a prob every 2 seconds with this bike man!

although it was mega foggy when i was out, with alot of moisture in the air, i wonder if thats responsible?

You must have a fan problem. I can say that the hottest mine has been is 220f (104c) and then the fans come on and it cools down quickly. Even with the stock fans, the temp never was at 220 for more than a few seconds at a time.

check tgis out, on post 16 the guys talkin about a lower temp switch, never heard of this b4. i once raised the subject of a cool runnin thermostat and/or a cool running switch and was told theres no such thing.

plus, would thick moisture in da air help increae the heat build up?
