Hi all, I fairly recently started riding a 2008 690 Duke and noticed on days with particularly heavy traffic usually while commuting, the engine temp gets right up to 9-11 bars depending on the air temp.
I read that this is by design to ensure the cat works at optimum, however I'm sure most...
I have an SXF250 2008 and it is a nightmare to start when it is hot!
I have recently fitted a new piston, checked valve clearances (all within tolerance) and cleaned out the carb, still it is being a pain!
compression seems fine, spark plug is fine ..
It really takes away then...
