Thinking of stealth install on a motorcycle.Hidden compartment gets to 130 degrees F.I previously used a valentine 1 G1 without issues but don't know temp limits with the R3.
The R3 is plastic where the V1 had a magnesium case.

From the R3 owner's manual. Or if you are asking about storage temp, it's in the box right below operating temp.

In addition to being well within operating temperatures, I think the R3 will run cooler than the Magnesium V1 did.

Might want to share some pictures for others in the Motorcycle section too.
