    I dont see any wiring from that hose. And you are correct, on the schematics I dont see a mention. Hmmm.

    Someone much more experienced than me will have to chime in! sorry

    The schematic shows it on the cylinder head, facing up, right hand side. It'll look like every other water temp sensor - brass body, plastic connected to that, two wires exiting.

    Looking on the 2020 schematics, which one would I find that on? Just curious, can't see it on the cylinder head one.

    Yeah, I passed out last night looking at schematics for that bugger.
    The fan plug end is there.
    but not the adjoining connector, nor the temp sensor/switch.
    I feel reasonably competent compared to avg folks and I swear it wasn't there.

    That's the water flow temp regulator thats inside the hose assy.

    It's there. This was from RMATV, 2020 and/or 21 "cylinder head" image.

    For some reason I thought the fan switch on the most recent production is activated by the ECU settings.. based on discussion from Taco Mike and aftermarket ECU settings.

    Isn't the thermostat switch (not fan switch) the one pointed out in the top of the head in the previous posts? Does the wiring for this run to the ECU wiring harness?

    I have a GET ecu

    i do not see any options for adjusting fan temp. But then again, i aint super tech savy.

    I thought Taco Mike in one of his you tube videos indicated that this parameter was adjustable during the programming phase for the new motos/ECUs while also building the fuel/timing maps.. could be wrong but don't know for sure..

    I ordered the True North Moto rack a couple weeks ago. Install was straightforward. Rack is nice fit and finish, good customer service.
    I was worried It might interfere with mx boots and on hard single track, but o can’t even tell it’s on.
    Mosko R80s and the GL Mojave’s fit solid and in the correct positioning.
    Highly recommended!

    Doesn't that strap anchor on the right side cause problems for your boot?

    A bit. I left it on when I installed the rack to compare mounting points and provide another option between the R80 and the GL Mojave. I’m pretty sure I’m gonna take it off.

    New GET ECU from Taco Moto Co this week as well as the PMB end cap with the Ultra quiet insert. I left the reeds in for now until I get a few trail rides on it to see how I like it. I bought the one without the WiFi module, since I didn't think I'd need to mess with it. After riding it a few times, I'm really happy with the improvement in performance and smoother throttle response. This bike already had way more power than I could use, but now it's usable at lower rpm. I can putt around in a taller gear without any shake, shudder, or knocking. It really feels more tractable down low.
    We finally got a little rain here, so hopefully more is on the way and we can get the trails back open so I can put it to a proper test.
    Also, the Ultra quiet insert is really pretty quiet. It's a little deeper tone that's more pleasing to my ear than stock, but the difference in overall sound level is minimal. Very happy with it. 20210909_110248.jpg 20210903_204440.jpg
