Maybe previous owner used 'engine ice' as Coolant? I use ethylene glycol.
It's normal when running in cooler weather.This is my question actually......asking if running 154 degrees is normal for the CP3 or not.
Nah, you can't replace the thermostat without destroying the housing it's in, it's not designed to be replaceable like that.I mean for all I know, the previous owner slapped in a lower temp thermostat and filled thebsystem with only water.
Thanks, good to know and yep...people in general....are just not smart smhIt's normal when running in cooler weather.

Any time you buy a used bike unless you know the owner well, you should always be suspicious of what's been done. People do stupid shit.
Also worth considering that is is a "guage" is is often heavily damped exactly for that reason - an undamped guage is a distraction but it still hasn't explained why the engine appears to run so cool. The only real way to measure the temperature would be an infrared thermometer when the bike is stationary or a mechanical thermocouple bolted to the engine casing CYLINDER HEAD TEMPERATURE GAUGE KIT, CHT. 10mm Fitting, 3M Length Sensor. 708747548921 | eBayMy FZ always ran cooler in our "winter". I assume the air cooling was greater than the engine heating could deal with.
My air/oil cooled GSX1100G also ran cold in the winter. Getting off the freeway in February after a 15 mile run to work, the engine acted like I had just started it. Took another 1/2 mile at slower speed to warm up.
This is all normal. Sometimes there are just too many distractions on the dashboard
It does. Yamaha are one of the foremost engine designers out there, and have been for decades. Look at the LFA V10, and the various others they have had design input with.Ok, but shouldn't an engine designed by Yamaha operate in a Window that keep it out of danger - Hi or Low?
