Having some time to tinker with this unhappy motorcycle I put it on the center stand and let it run. Had it idle for 15 minutes. No problems, no unusual noises. Brought it operating temperature and checked oil. Levels are good. Now I'm letting it idle for another 15 minutes with the bike in gear. 12 minutes in and no problems. One thing I am noticing is the temp gauge for the engine reads normal but my ambient temperature is hot hot. 136 F. Is that just because the sensor is near the radiator? Update: The ambient temp deal was definitely because it was sitting idle. I rode the bike around my yard and that temp dropped. Also still operated problem free. There's no way this was just a fluke, is there?
