think the left almost is always slightly cooler than the right, maybe because the side car blocks some of the wind. my CHT almost always shows a 3 to 5 deg hotter right side. as to the blue not sure. driving 3 miles and temp okay, don't think i would worry,IMHO. ps wouldn't hurt to have it looked, at just to make sure.Speedbump wrote:I have noticed that my RH exhaust had blued more and faster then the LH om my 2015 Retro, now with 15,000km on the odo. I finally installed a CHT gauge and confirmed the LH cylinder takes longer to "warm up" , but will eventually got to the same temp. I started the bike the other day and waited until the RH side got to ~100 deg. then shut her down. While the RH rocker cover was hot to the touch, the LH was not. Drove 3 miles and the CHT said both cylinders were at about the same temp of ~250 deg. No recent loss of power or anything else to indicate a problem. Thoughts?
agree my 2016 temps rarely are the same usually 5 to 7 degrees apart and i love the way it runs,great power no hesitation good torque.Donbmw wrote:CHT temps for the most part will not be the same for each cylinder.
Right cylinder always runs warmer.
