    Hi guys,

    Just changed the thermostat because I was overheating. Still testing and verifying that this was the issue. What is normal operating temperature range on gen 2 gauge?

    When cruising she sits about at or below the halfway point...in hot weather and heavy traffic it will get as high as 3/4 on the gauge and then the fan will kick on and bring it just a tick beyond half.

    Does that sound normal?
