    Temperature gauge

    Hi, Just returned from a weekend ride out in North Wales and weather was good and warm. I noticed the temperature gauge never ever altered from 3 bars, once up to temperature. Even when in traffic and the fan cutting in and out. Is this normal? On my previous viffers with numeric display the temperature would increase and decrease as the fan cut in.
    Bike is 2016 model
    Cheers Don

    My 2017 model does the same, stays on three bars but the fan cuts in and out to keep things cool especially in crawling traffic. I did notice this evening after riding home from work and leaving the bike on the drive for a few minutes that the ally frame was really hot to touch. Must act as a big heat soak. I also noticed that I was averaging 58.6 mpg, so happy with that.

    Thanks for quick reply! I knew things were ok with fan, but just thought it odd no variation whatsoever.
    At least it's normal....
    Cheers

    Maybe the lack of an enclosing fairing helps to moderate the temperature range of the engine.  :027:

    When I rode home with a holed radiator (upper rad close to top), even though it was unpressurised the temp gauge stayed on 3 bars with fan cutting in as normal with no overheating despite loss of some coolant.

    Honda has developed a different cooling system for the( 2014 model and after) vfr and crossrunner of course, to keep temperatures low thus making it more reliable.I think problems  stated in previous generations such as burned coil, rectifie/alternator, even cam chain tensioners should be less heard

    I've run my bike in pretty hot weather(summer weather temperatures 38-40celcius) since i'm living in Greece and i've never seen more than 3 bars.
