Does any body know what temperature range the oil shold be on a 2001 650L?? Or should not exceed what number?? Found my old temp dipstick in the garage last night and forgot the numbers. Thanks.

Where in CA are you? im in the desert and ive seen up to 275 this summer, but normal riding is about 225-250. Do you have stock tank with shrouds? They help air flow to engine.
