Lightbulb Overheating remedy for F4 models

Hi guys.

I opened this thread so we can all see and state the remedies that are avalible at the owners expense at the moment.

1. Fuzzy Fans ( 2 - Fans ) F4 Model
2. Engine ICE and or Water wetter
3. Cut fairing like CC ( Will see drop in temp by 1-3 degrees )
4. Titanium System Thermal Wrapped ( Cooler header and removal of cats fairing wont melt )
5. Dont ride in around busy traffic or built up areas

If i,ve missed any please add them.

Titanium cooler header? I thought it is just aesthetic.

fan relay bypass switch.

another stupid idea, but it might work:
nitrous bottle with intercooler sprayer. just mount the sprayer in front of the radiator.

here`s another one...
what about wraping the exhaust inn exhaust bandage?
it should, in theory, keep the heat inn the pipes and not escape before the end..

the possible downside is that the arse of the bike will get a bit hot...
but it might be a quick fix..

Have the headers ceramic coated. It costs less than $200 and works very well.
