I can push up my water temps by using high gear in extreme situations, low gear helps greatly! You didn't mention what gear you were in, so just saying! Oil temp is something I watch more than water temp! I run full synthetic oils in mine, normal temp is about 200F even, I've had it up to 260F when really beating on it! Synthetics take a lot more temperature before breaking down, 275F would be about the max I'd like to see! I run 20/50 in the summer! Oil cooler is a plus to have, I can fan mine and actually watch the oil temp drop!
