Any other cost effective suggestions to keep it cool? This will be a dedicated snow bike after this summer.

These bikes are not known to be fuel efficient. Try a richer map, I'd love to know if it helps.

You could buy a higher pressure radiator cap. I installed a 2.0 BAR radiator cap and it solved most of my boiling over problems.

Put a fan on my `06 and haven't had a problem since. The Trail Tech kit allows you to set the temp at which the fan comes on and shuts off. Since my bike is older, I had to use the universal kit and had to make a mount for the display. I made a flat panel (bracket) from a sheet of stainless and attached the display to a handle bar clamp bolt so I could see it while riding. But since it doesn't over heat (boil) anymore, I don't need to see it. Best mod to make to the bike IMO...especially if you find yourself riding slow...or in my case, on the road. Yes it's street legal.
