Hello,
I was referred here by the people at south bay riders. I am having trouble with my bike getting hot. I just purchased a pusher fan (4"), and am hoping that will help, It hasnt overheated yet but I am wondering if stopping at a traffic light will provoke this problem. Already running engine ice, and I am told that it doesnt have a thermostat. Anyone have any ideas on keeping the bike cool?
Thanks,



Dave

- is your jetting stock?
- is your pipe stock?
- what does 'having trouble' mean

It is a puller mounted on the rear of the rad, pulling the air through so it also works when the bike is moving, have a look at the install pictures I posted a while ago.
