Ninja Overheating!!

Whenever I ride my bike and get caught in traffic, my temp goes up consistently but after I get going it cools off. I checked my coolant level and its right at the H mark. Is this normal for an inline four or could my thermostat be stuck. Oh yeah the bike is a Ninja 7

Does the fan come on when you're sitting? 4 cylinder bikes heat up very quickly when they're not moving.

As long as the fan comes on and the bike isn't blowing out antifreeze, don't worry....

The temperature will go up when you are sitting still. It only take a few minutes in traffic for my bike to break 200. So long as it doesnt go over you max temp (around 220) there are no worries
