I warm mine up to the second mark on the centerstand, before even taking off. During freezing weather, I have had it drop back down almost to the far left, which is not good, as that second mark is minimum operating temperature IMO. I thought about carrying something to cover the radiator when it is super cold, to keep from losing heat to the cold air blowing through it, but never have. If you let it set and idle on the centerstand for several minutes, and the gauge does not move, something is either wrong with the gauge or the sending unit, hopefully the sending unit. I believe the sending unit also turns the fan on.
I am a motorcyclist, NOT a biker.
