Hi folks,I seem to be having trouble with my z750,yesterday the temp gauge read 104 degrees C before the fan kicked in!havent noticed the bike getting this hot before but maybe now its peak summer in Oz its normal but it doesnt seem right,Im sure the thermostat should start the fan working at a much lower temp?? is it possible to reset the thermostat or does it need replacing if there's a fault with it?cheers

Hi greaser07 your bike is fine! 102-104 C is the right temp. for the fan to start.

same here, there is nothing wrong with your Z. My fan also kicks in around 103-104
Any higher maybe but at 104, its fine. Just get her opened up and get some cool air going.
What is considered "average operating temperature range" for this bike? At what operating temperature should I become genuinely concerned that there may be a cooling issue?
I ask this because my very new Zed (2 weeks old) showed a temperature reading of 175c recently - and I thought that was excessive? Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
My bike runs at about 220F on a hot day sitting in traffic, if you get moving it will easily drop into the 180s.
Engine Ice coolant will help your bike run cooler but is quite expensive. You can also hard wire your fan to run whenever the bike is on.

my z-1000 manual says "if the coolant temperature rises to above 115c(239f) and below 120c(248f), the numerical value of the current cooling temperature starts flashing" i take this as meaning 115c is high, and over 120c is a meltdown, and you should have turned the bike off. hope this helps

I keep forgetting that I don't live in Scotland. My posting should have read...175F NOT 175C. Which I guess makes everything (except my IQ) A-OK.
ROFL!!! thats classic, i first thought that bout my z1k when it would idle at 200f (thought it was c) then i kicked myself and laughed...
Hell yea on a hot day here 220+ flashing like a mofo
