less temp MORE BETTER

OK since I have done the Water pump enlargement / Samco therm bypass / wetter water in the system the bike is running 10 or so degrees F lower according to the Pro circuit temp strip ( down from 193 F to 182 F approx) on the water pump housing and left radiator and the ambient air temp is up by a couple of degrees ( 75 F ) since my last experiment ( 69 F ) on the same run, however the gear box oil is showing same temp as before 193 F which I reckon is no bad thing !

I check the strips on the water pump housing and radiator match temps when I stop riding if they dont then its a good early indicator there is a problem !
