What do you mean yours didn't fit? It was tricky to get into place and I did have to lubricate it with grease to get it to slide in. Otherwise, it was pretty straightforward.

They make them for both bikes though, right?

I do not know because I have never upgraded my water pump.

Were I to upgrade my water pump, I would be certain that the supply entity had a pump for the correct model and year of bike.

Not sure with what I'm going to do with these injector covers at this point but I'm still looking for the glossy finish at the moment. If anybody wants these I'll let them go for a reasonable price - so I can re-order the gloss instead. The matte is very very nice but it doesn't match what I already have on the bike.
Where did you get the carbon injector covers? I may be interested in them but the Ilmberger rear fender/hugger I am also looking at getting is glossy, so same problem you’re having.

I didnt do that massive pump but I did do the updated design but regarding the radidator when I refilled it I actually pulled the lower rad but left the hoses intact, plugged the long side with a rubber stopper, and filled it on its side until the coolant/water was filling up the short tube, then put it back on the bike. Save for a bleeder on the rad itself its pretty much the only way to get 100% coolant in that lower rad.

That fill technique and the upgraded (stock) pump design really improved the cooling on my 750.
Turbo329 and Drewbert34 like this.

I upgraded my water pump, 1000S, and find that it keeps much cooler. Design Course model.

Living in a tropical country, Philippines, it is a must have item. Today was 35C, tomorrow 36C.

The hottest I have seen on the bike? 104C.

My Honda VFR800 easily exceeds 108C, and a high os 112C, and I use a fan override switch in traffic. It helps to anticipate traffic.

For those living in Finland, disregard.
