What temps are you seeing on your 650 under normal riding conditions?

103 is the number I see most often, in good conditions mine ranges from 95-110. I have not had to use scratchers at all this year (1400 miles).

Put 98 miles on today in Oconto County. Temps were in the 20’s. Trails went from 2 miles of pristine conditions then followed by 500 yards of dirt and grass on and off all day. Sled ran at 120-124 most of the day. Saw 133/134 a couple times. This sled runs cool.

I was in Forest County Wisconsin, most trails were thin, but even some road runs and logging roads got to 135F or so and then stayed. A few trails with fresh snow on them, and it dropped down to 110F.

When first started, and idling, this sled is very SLOW to warm up. Once given some throttle it happens quicker. I am running 91 non gasoline, set for the 91 NON fuel type

I agree. My sled takes a solid 5 minutes to warm up. Usually takes 10 when temps are single digits.
Same on fuel settings.

I'm finding this sleds temps are definitely dependent on ride height and suspension adjust ment. My 1st ride out, I was in the 130's. Then when I went 2up I was in the high 90s to 105 range all day. I had put on the HD springs and while out yesterday for 150 mile trek I played around with the suspension to fine tune it to my liking...all the while watching my temps as a side note. with my torsion springs on medium and rts on 7...I was seeing the 130s again. Once I put the torsion back down to low and took a few clicks to soften it, I was back down near 105.

Mine runs high 90’s to low 100’s in decent snow.

One thing I noticed on cold startups is that my 650 idles at 1400 rpm while my 850 ideals at 1850-1900 rpm, the 650 takes considerably more time to get up to 100 degrees.
