That would explain the constant temp readings reported by Umitc

Question Tennesee, it gets hot here.

It gets up to 100 + deg. F for days here in the southeast. I had a BMW K bike that made so much heat it was unbearable. The cooling fan blew the heat onto my right leg .Could one of you gentlemen tell me where the two fans vent the air too ? I have a deposit on the Adventure 1190 and am more curious than anything as I intend on buying the bike anyway. TIA

On the right side of the radiator, if I am not mistaken

And pebble what makes oil temperature decrease? I wonder, what is the exact source of the heat, can it be just the exhaust pipe, as I remember one of the reviews on the web, after Tenerife ride has mentioned.
And would it help if I wrap the exhaust pipe, usnig an exhaust wrap.

Do you know, if the fan is running when you feel the heat?

I think I haven't heard a fan so far, like it was in 990. By the way, fans are at the rights side, if I am not wrong, but the left side of the bike becomes hotter; I can feel it where my knee squeeze the tank. :

On a picture, I can see two fans on the right side of the radiator. I would place a light paper sheet in front of the radiator. If the fans work, the paper shouldn´t fall down.
Or you can see them operate when you look through the gap (between the orange and the black part) on the right side of the tank. At least some hot air should come out.

Joe Pilgers report from Africa on a 1190r states that he was pleased that the bike didnt overheat and he was extremely happy with the dual fans compared to his 990r.

Yes he is right; no overheating. Anyway, I will wrap it up tomorrow and wait for the Akra arrives in the dealer's stocks. I hope that it can turn to be more bearable.

Here is the first (or one the first) test vs the GSW.
It's in Spanish, but you can use google translate to read it or at least to figure things out

http://motos.coches.net/noticias/com...?tipoNoticia=2

The tester mentions the heat coming from the bike, and that could be a problem in the summer...

Surely there is a problem; I am maybe just a little bit more careful against it, then other people. During summer it gets between 30 and 40 degrees here and it will be even more irresistable.

Looks like a windmill slalom course:

Not exactly an answer to the question you were asking, but here are my 2 cents of generic approach to an answer: I have continuously had cars, since the 1990's, that have separate water and oil temperature gauges. For these cars, water and oil temperature not always run in tandem. Most common example: oil temps go up when higher RPMs are used, as in freeway riding at higher speeds, oil temps go down at idle speeds or stop and go traffic. Water/coolant goes down at higher speeds of travel, goes up when seating in traffic or at idle speeds. Now, an oil cooler/radiator changes that some but because of oil's higher viscosity when compared to water, oil cooler/radiators are not as efficient as water radiators. That is, oil remains a function of engine speed, will cool down when RPMs go down. Also, oil temps also change at slower rates than water/coolant temps change.

Thanks for your detailed explanation. Today I have spent a lot of time wrapping the exhaust using thermotec copper wraps. Seems like we have overcome a good portion of the heat. I have done almost all the bumper but, in my opinion, the biggest cause to this problem is the small pipe, in the middle of the bike. I can give you more feedback later. By the way fans work well, no problem.

I found a pic on page 2502 of this thread and see the stacked fans on the right. Cant wait to ride one but that is months away here in the USA.
