Fixt. But yes broken wires already on my 2000 mile old bike. I also put in the proper resistor in the plug where my smog equip is removed.

I had the EVO 2 map installed (for the air filter that mounts directly to the TB).
We'll see how that goes.
My previous map was the EVO 1 which is for the open top airbox (no snorkel), which worked pretty well except for occasional flameouts in technical slow riding. That could of been due to low speed riding (and stock gearing) through technical stuff.

Gonna put the hammer down today.

I agree with the love/hate thing.
Evo2 uses diffrent cam tho?

Fixt.
For EU bikes it means:
'malfunction in injection valve circuit'
Had that problem a few days ago :(

I'm so happy to be getting rid of all the damn resistors and associated road bike safety BS

More seriously, It would have been better you align the to right return line verticaly instead of at angle. And provide a longer replacement silicone hose with it. This would allow to install a second fan on the right hand side of the radiator. Where's the integrated crash guard ??? KTM is not rugged enough. I bent it on a regular basis ..

I guess it's argue with Paul night I've ridden my 690 in the nastiest single track and it never boiled over..ever and it was geared for the 100+. What are you doing to your bike that requires a second fan?

Cranky ... I bet all your primary school teachers remember you ...

You and I know this bike barely needs a fan as long as the bike goes over 30 MPH, and that the radiator is clean. I'm using Propylene Glycol (Caterpillar, Engine Ice, et.c.) instead of the standard Ethylen Glycol (Prestone, Motul, et.c.). That lowers temperature significantly. I'd say at least 30 degrees ferenheit.

BUT. If it was stuck beating the donk in a dez - like moving 100 yard per hour in a sand dune - It would boil. The second fan is for pretty heavy adventurers who needs the safety of a second fan, or the capacity of two fans ...

Yup, they loved me because i wasn't like all the other sheep, I mean children

Not going to argue with you. I've never had it boil over in even the deepest mud and nasty single track. When you mention an ADvrider, then I believe that the bike will over heat

Maybe beany can chime in and tell us more about his new rad?

Looking to ditch the exhaust pipe heat shield, does anyone have any thoughts? I would love to do CF or even a ceramic coating but no interest in header wrap.

I put on the 3 CF shields. Looks better, weighs tons less then the stock. Never feel heat on leg. Not sure if they'll get whacked in a smash and slide but we'll see. Excessively expensive.

Yea, I just saw that I know a local guy that could probably form one for me pretty easily.

This is what I'm looking for....

I need to buy a spare cause I just keep breaking them.

i made my tool box out of hdpe 3/16 if i remember right.heated it with a heat gun where I wanted it bent and then put it in a break .... folded it all up and used pop rivits.... i could have welded it but was lazy. very easy to work with and i had some laying around left over from a 60" water pipe project
