operating temperature

Has anyone experienced a rise in the operating temperature without any overheating or even being close to that, but nevertheless different than what was the norm for years before. I had the coolant changed (and I presume the system checked) and this slight rise is still there. Does it matter?

How hot is it running when you are cruising at highway speeds? If it's been a gradual change, you may want to check the radiator itself. The fins may be clogged up with bugs and dirt.

All is well. It's been so long since we had hot weather, I forgot how thw bike reacted to it, plus for some reason my fan now runs completely quietly although I remember being able to hear it before.

Thanks for your help.
