I have a 76 gl1000 resto in progress that just got on the Rd yesterday been working on it for 6months i restore antique Hondas and I'm a small engine mechanic but I need some tech info. I put an aftermarket temp gauge and sensor on this bike so I could read actual numbers the bike seems to run between 200 degrees to 210 Fahrenheit on a 95 degree day. So my question is is this normal? it seems hot to me does anyone have an actual number they could tell me
