A heat tid bit

Everybody's fav topic I know but an interesting side effect of having the PC put in and mapped. Went for an 80 or so mile ride yesterday. OAT was in the 60's. At 70 mph (5000rpm) the temp was steady at 172-174 and in sub 40 mph speeds it got into the 190's and flipping the fan switch took care of that.

I don't know if the tuning made any diff. It did run hotter at speed before though.

Just a little info FWIW.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool, like a butcher's knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator.

You're calling us wack jobs? From the man that plays the bag pipes?
