That seems pretty moderate- where are you taking the temperature measurement?

For reference, average sump temps for my 1216 Bandit are in the 115°C - 126°C range when the ambient air temps are 25°C - 35°C.

You said 80 ??? Is that in celcius?? If so, that is perfectly fine. Oil fails at about 115 C. So if your oil ever gets that hot it needs to be changed.

yes is it 80 degrees (celsius). Maybe it is normal. in summer temperature raises about 100 degrees, but now there is -5 degrees outside... I think overheating is no problem until next summer
