I have a 96 ZX11 D...bike just passed over 35,000 miles and is running PERFECT except my temp gauge is starting to pull a little trick while I am cruising in top gear. The gauge will rise and fall rather quickly and seems to only do this while I am in 6th gear. Is this an indication of my water pump going out? Anyone had this problem before? Curiosity is killing me. Thanks!

Don't know if this helps but. My brother got a '90 or '91 used a few years ago. His temp guage looked like it got soaked in gasoline, and then set out in the sun to dry under a magnifying glass. It was toast. So I think he replaced the thermostat, and we put on a brand new stock guage. It worked perfectly ever since then until he sold it, and got his new ZX 12R.

It would seem to me that cruising in 6th it would be very hard for the engine to suddenly gain or lose heat. Sounds much more likely its a bad connection or temp sensor.
