I've had mine out since early March. Was out and around Lake Shawnee and rode up to Lake Perry yesterday.
Gimpy give me a shout. three one six nine nine three four six four zero.

Need to get mine over to Smuthers for a dyno run and adjust.

Has anyone tried the carbon fiber air scoops for the radiators to help keep the ol girl cool when riding slow?

GF is out of town this coming weekend. So I'll have fresh tires Sat and plan on riding all day. I haven't had any experience with the scoops but I do need to hook up a manual switch for the fans. My bike was running HOT end of last seasons trackday, above 240. Fans work but don't know why it was over heating. I have fresh coolant. I do need a fresh tune hoping that'll help.

I wired my switch in so that I have both manual and temp fans. When I am in town I can turn the fans on. If I forget they still come on at 216 or so. Was easy with the shop manual and a wiring diagram. If you need help let me know. Bought my switch at autozone and mounted it on the headlight assy so that it is well hidden. I will get some picks posted soon of it.

No need for pay. If you do not mind coming over to Topeka it will take about 30 mins once we get the parts. I will probably not be able to make the ride on Sat as I am working at the Air National Guard base on Sat. for a short while.
Here is my cell 316-993-4640
