Thanks for the detailed explanation
but I have a doubt about the temperature. I read that when you turn off the engine, in the next few minutes the temperature increase before starting to decrese. Instead, I understood that you told me the temperature stay stable after turning off the engine. Have I misunderstood? That's what I'm saying to those people! I think that the engineers know their stuff, and besides that there are no reference in the user manual about this fact

I will add something else here, I spent the better of 35 years repairing large water cooled inverters, all new inverters and I am talking 600 kilowatt to 2.5 megawatt inverters with water cooled electronics all turn off the internal cabinet water pump or close the inlet water valve to the cabinet while continuing to circulate cooling water to the furnaces,on a power failure or power down why
, mainly because there is no more energy being produced / consumed within the cabinet.
This holds true for our bikes, that T stat in my photo is analogue with a capillary connected to my bypass T which enter's the return line at the water pump. I think you would be surprised how fast the temperature of the engine drops even on a hot day (26'C) in 15 minutes it is at 160'F, this isn't a statement that I think what happens but actual fact, to go further, what you mention about the temperature going up, is false, if that were the case,starting the bike 3 minutes after dropping the bike, one would expect to be in over-temperature, I can tell you for a fact it is about 4'F cooler, again that is what happens when you are in second gear doing a 180 ccw and not paying attention.Rode all season with my patched left fairing, new one is still in a sealed cardboard box from 2017.
If you are looking for a argument here, you came to the wrong place. Something like break in, I went as high as 8000 RPM the very first 200 KM, I followed my head Kawasaki trained mechanic, we all have choices, if you plan on following the manual every time, don't ask or question other methods . What you question isn't in the service manual or the owners manual.
If your choice is to let it run for 10 minutes before you turn it off, that is your choice, what would be more important , if you live in a cool or cold climate is to use a Thermo-Bob , cycling from hot to cold numerous times isn't good for anything.
What is also harder is having the fan come on late, that is when it reaches 212'F cut in temp, we are still inputting energy into the motor, plus the energy already there, I have seen my T gauge go over 214'F with the fan running, so the flash change on the 2015 is set for around 205'F cut in, I expect to see a huge change in performance.
