I ride a 2004 WR450F, and I was wondering what a high engine temperature is for this machine or one like it, right now I'm doing about 195-203 degrees (F). Any info would be helpful... Thanks
A 50-50 mix of standard coolant/distilled water boils at ~260 deg F. You are well within the comfort zone of the motor.

Modern 4S race bikes like yours can run 900 degrees at the header and glow if left idling more than a minute. Even on my SM, I feel the heat mid leg from the Ti pipe due to the thin wall construction.
