It could be a number of issues ranging from a bad temp sensor, bad cluster or even a bad thermostat. Playing the guessing game is not gonna work.

Have it looked at right away before it does any serious harm which could cost you an engine.

I had the same thing happened to me. It turned out to be a loose AUX fan connection.
I am talking about the electrical fan. Check the connection there.

But if the temp won't climb it does sound like a thermostat. I just had mine replaced at Stance Factory.

Its funny to see another touring with the same problems
