    Hi, Gazz
    Have you checked the coolant level , strange for it to suddenly run hot and it’s not water , it’s motul coolant , the latest spitfires have the temp sensor in the top hose and will probably show a higher temp , previously sensor was half way down the radiator and would show 65°-80° riding 93° standing , the high temp warning is normally set at 105°

    Topped up coolant did not need any been out for ride high temp light coming on all the time I don’t think dash is showing the right temp if you leave the bike off for a while still shows hot temp fan not coming on at all can’t trust the bike now engine doesn’t feel hot at all seems like a elec fault.
