Must knowledge about the Trophy 2013
« on: March 08, 2013, 07:31:30 AM »
I must know if the Trophy overheats in traffic.

Have any one of you owner-folks been stuck in traffic or long slow rides? Has the engine overheated?

I drive in traffic a lot and cannot deal with an overheating bike in traffic. Appreciate your input. Thanks

Well, a few times I've been caught in stop and go traffic on the 405 freeway for 20-30 minutes. probably the worst traffic on earth. I don't think the fans even came on. didn't even feel a lot of heat from the engine. but I think I also split lanes some

Hi,

I've spent 1h30 in traffic stop and go in Paris (I was following a car). External temperature was 13°C and I did not have issue.

Hope it can help.

Now that I have driven mine for a while, it appears to me the TT has a very good cooling system...certainly unlike the GL or the BM.

Been stopped and moving slowly in traffic on a number of occasions. The temperature gauge always runs at 4 bar, when stopped or moving slowly it goes up 1 bar to 5, has never gone higher. Hope this helps. This has been in 25 to 30 degrees Celsius.

Down in West Oz end of summer, I've been out in 36C (must be near 95F), sitting in traffic, engine heat indicator never went over 5 bars, even at long idle in still and hot conditions. There was a fair bit of engine heat dumping on my lower legs from around the lower cowling, and with the wind protection in front, I dropped my screen right down to get some air into my (leather) jacket.

The long and short of it - I was hot, the bike was not, so you can put your faith in the cooling system. And I know it was 36, coz this bke told me so.
Don't grow up, it's a trap...
