    I was thinking when the weather gets warmer it’s likely to be higher. I’ll keep an eye on it

    even so a fan will make no difference,the amount of air it puts through the rad is nothing compared to actual air flow whilst riding.even having a fan on a switch is pretty pointless if the bike isn't running as no water is being pumped around the engine,just whats sat in the rad will be cooled (again,pointless really)

    to be fair 94 is ok,it may spike a bit on your run in to pit

    So I’ve got some samco hoses on order which is supposed to help radiate heat better than standard but I’ll reserve judgment until tried and some engine ice radiator coolant which says is proven to reduce temperatures up to 10 degrees. Worth a punt before the radiator upgrade.

    They run at 100-107 usually. 94 is nothing. But a higher pressure rad cap will raise the boiling point.

    Just because you shut it off doesn't mean it cools straight away, heat of the engine will continue to raise the temperature.
