I wouldn't worry about it. Just don't let the bike idle too long.

I don't recall who makes it, but there are temp strips (like those on fish tanks) that will display temps. They are installed on the tank of the radiator. I think it might be FX who makes it. I would just ride it, if it gets to hot it will purge coolant out of the radiator. Then you'll have to ride nice for a while and let it cool down.

thanx...so as long as it dont spit coolant out im not overheating?

Yes.

I don't think the actual temp matters, as long as you don't boil it. Pretty sure they are designed to run over a wide temp range (since they don't have a fan or thermostat). My Vapor shows my temp is usually in the 180-200's. Boil point is 261. Hot days and slow riding will get it pretty hot, but if you maintain even 10-15mph it will usually cool down quickly.
