2500mi and my track is in excellent condition, original sliders show minimal wear. I use TRIC scratchers, available from Yamaha Motor Canada

This got me thinking so looked up the temp light details in the Service manual and is as follows:
Hot lamp on
Idle = 230F, WOT = 185F

Hot lamp flash (also will activate engine misfire)
Idle = 239F, WOT = 208F

Looks like there is a linear step between idle and wide open throttle (WOT) for these ranges.

Certainly seems quite high, hopefully we never see this light on while running!

Yeah, but certainly had to make you nervous as I know I would be.
