Properly installed (not crossing up the hoses emanating from the water pump) the T-Bob has never done any harm. I live in a climate similar to ZA and often ride in temperatures in the 40℃ range.
The coolant temperature comes up to midscale (mine is a 2009) quickly on the temp indicator. The cooling system controls the upper temperature quite well, so the overall effect is that the engine operates, 95% of the time, at mid-scale. It will pop up higher when in stop and go traffic, but that is completely normal and not related to the T-Bob.
I also ride in temperatures in the 0℃ range from time to time in vain attempts to kill myself*. Again, the engine comes up quickly to mid-scale and stays there.
*To date, I have never been killed. Not even once.
