1299SL overheating

Any 1299SL owners experience any overheating issues. Had no problem in the first 1000 k's then after the first service saw the temp go up to 120 degrees celcius in traffic. Had to quickly accelerate to bring the temp down. Fan comes on at 103 degrees celcius and works for a little while but while stationary the temp just keeps climbing.

Check your coolant level just in case.
I would visit the mechanic and explain the situation.
Ultimately we bought a track bike designed for top performance. Street riding is always a compromise.
Take her to a track day. That’s where she belongs.

Nope. You bought a street bike. That's why it has headlights and number plates and brake lights and turn signals. It should work on the street without overheating.

Ask AblecDuc, or Halo they will tell us as Ducati owners we must embrace this shit....after all between them even Ducati R&D can't learn

Today was over 30 degrees Celsius. I came into town from a spirited ride and filtering at low speed for the last bit, this is where you feel the heat from the pipe. Then I proceeded into town looking for a place I could not find so I ended up circling blocks and idling a lot. This is the first time I have seen the bike go beyond 104 degrees c. Usually the fan would switch on at 104 and bring the temp down even when stationary. Today it climbed to 106 once. This afternoon I checked for water leaks etc. But she is perfect.
Not an SL though, maybe plastic is cooler than carbon after all.

seems a bit on the hot side for coolant temps. Ducatis are very efficient in pulling heat off the motor and putting into the ambient air - having a roasted butt means less heat in the motor, where it's bad. I've never seen coolant temps higher than about 105 degrees celsius, and I live in a very hot and humid climate.

If I owned a 1299 Superleggera, I would have that bike in the shop in an instant every time I imagined even the smallest odd sound.

Yeah took it back to the bike shop and had the thermostat changed but didnt help. Next they will change the temp sensor (dont think this is the problem) and then they will check cooling system for a blockage. Bit strange it was o.k. for the first 1000 k's.

If the thermostat was closed shut would have cooked the engine/heat saturated and maybe done a HG.

I would have the cooling system pressure tested, might be just a bad radiator cap.

These bikes do run hot

Yeah that's what I thought and it did work for the first 1000 k's. It's also a real pain in the arse to start from cold as well. Had an 1199 and never had any problems.
