I have a Trail Tech on my CRF20 and the head can get very hot in the slow short tight stuff.  The slower you go the hotter it gets.  Once air starts flowing over the head temp. comes right back down.

 

This is the problem with air-cooled engines; they run HOT when going slow.  Try saddling up on an older HD and sitting in traffic.  Those things will light you on fire.  This is why HD added liquid-cooled heads.

 

If you find you are riding at very high temperatures for sustained periods of time just change your oil a bit sooner.
