I just did a word search of the shop manual and found nothing related to a high temperature shutdown.  Pgs 7-29 through 7-31 have the ECU diagnostic codes, none of them are for high engine temperature.  Code 70 is given when the engine is idled for more than 20 minutes.  The ECU shuts down the engine to prevent overheating, but that's the closest thing I can find to an oil temp shutdown.

    :agree:
    There's also code 28:engine temperature sensor open or short. But that has nothing to do with the actual engine temperature.
    I'd rather die on a motorcycle than live without one.

      Code 28 did not shut you down.  The bike is able to start and run with a code 28.  The engine may have overheated and stalled, but it wasn't the code that did it.  The oil temp must have been high enough that the ECU thought the temperature detector was open.  I can see the relationship, but it wasn't the code that shut you down.

      TJ   I didn't say I was shut down.   I turned it off to cool off.

      If your Raider had over heated it would have shut down - it has a sensor that if the bike doesn't move while running in 20 mins it will shut down - don't ask me how I know.

      How about adding a thermostat to the cooler.  Harley does this with oil coolers to maintain operating temperature.
