The thermometer indicator is always there, hot or cold. Favor the bars - 3 is the usual condition, 2 in exceptionally cold weather.

Being slow doesn't make a boring bike. I had a R1 which I thought was boring. Boring is a bike that doesn't speak to you. If you like what your bike is saying let it's voice take you to far flung places. - Vertical C

I kind of see the confusion. The little oil can is normally off so why the water temp icon on when normal? Still I never gave it a thought until now. No blink or red lights? Keep going. Blink or red but running? Stop and check/fix. So far low fuel, temp, ABS are the only lights or blink i have seen after rolling in 17000 miles. FI not yet. Temp not yet. Oil pressure hopefully never.
