Ok guys, I ride in texas and it gets hot here as well as many other states, so my question goes out to the guys who ride in the sun and see 90-100 degree days. But I have noticed that my ace 570 gets hotter after I turn it off from my ride, I have seen it as high as 240 degrees farenheit, no warning lights, and as soon as I start it the temp will come back down to 18-190, but sitting off after a ride the temp climbs higher than comfortable with. Any input is appreciated.

I have never monitored temp after shutting down. But while riding my fan turns on at 204 f and turns off at 179 f.
When I turn it off, I usually take the key out and get out.
I can check this weekend to see how it does on mine.

I have the ace 570sp when we stop I leave the engine running or if we shout the engine down we leave the key on and the fan will cool the engine down in a couple min. I do the same with my diesel truck. I feel the engine needs to be cooled down before I shut down completely.

I agree entirely mistee, I typically let my mechanical things idle before shut down or I just leave them at idle till I return to use of the go pedal, how ever I hear what I believe to be belt drag because my tranny makes some gear noise when shifting and is hard to shift at times from one gear to another. So I was stopping and starting frequently to avoid extended idle periods burning my belt in spots. So in these starting stopping periods I was playing with the info display and noticed this heat issue.

And I know your right randy, but I had to ask because I was expecting it with the engine tranny setup, to be open enough to disapate the heat better, I know the exhaust wraps around the motor but it is still really open...

engine temp tends to run in a sinusoidal pattern. I always wait to shut my machines off when they are on the down swing. If you shut them down on the up swing they can really cook.
My method:
if the fan is running when I stop i let it idle until the fan stops and then turn it off.
if the fan is Not running its usually on the up swing so I let it run until the fan comes on and back off before shutting down.
this can really help avoid the 'heat soak' issue

lol sorry it does fit the temp cycle on these things pretty well though
my 70 Cyclone Spoiler however tends to run a sawtooth pattern. the temp spikes, the thermostat opens and the temp drops significantly and so on. The only way I can get that thing to be more consistent is to run with the hood off lol. I really need some aluminum heads for that cobra jet...taking donations :D

I ran mine most of the day today, in rain and heat. I never monitored the temps when I shut it down.
Once today I shut down without the fan running, when I cranked back up, the fan kicked on.
The rest of the starts and stops, not much difference.
I did notice most of the time when running the fan rarely comes on, only when crawling or idling do I see it coming on.

Thanks cyclone I never thought of that, but it makes sense, I noticed that it is worse sometimes than others. And that's usually when my fan comes on as well rduhon, most of the time I'm going fast enough not to need a fan, it just bothered me how hot it got after being turned off.
