My 07 660 runs normally between 165 and 185 deg. on a 70 deg. day.
Didn't have a temp gauge installed last summer so they may run hotter in the summer.
But so does everything else in the **** fire Arizona sonoran desert

Thanks HUTT;
I am working on guages for mine right now and I have seen and heard the horror of the overheating rhinos.
So far I have learned that because there is no restriction in the cooling system to slow the circulation of water it doesnt stay in the radiator long enough to scrubb the heat off...
We went through this with our trucks and race car and im wonering if a restrictor washer or thermostat would make a difference.. The aftermarket radiators are pretty darn pricey...

lol. This same exact question was just asked 2 days ago. Mine is usually around 170-200. When it hits 210 I start taking it easy and let it cool down a bit.
