Thanks guys.

So far so good. I got the water pump installed last night and it didn't boil over after idling for a few minutes. So that's a start... hahahahahha

I'm going to cycle the system again this evening so that it can finish bleeding out the air. Then maybe over the weekend I'll get to work on the clutch slave cylinder.

Regarding the carbon, I was in such a rush to part with my money that I didn't notice that it was the matte finish when I did the checkout. I was looking for the gloss finish so that it matches the CRC carbon that I already have on the 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.

I considered that but the risk of screwing it up has gotten me a bit concerned. I would have to spray it outdoors and between the dust and those damn mosquitos I don't know which would screw it up faster.

I rode it today.

The Oberon master cylinder is a small improvement over stock. Definitely better but not Earth shattering difference. The cumulative effect on fatigue will be noticeable though.

The JetPrime water pump definitely is helping. I was cruising at around 171*F. Only at the end of the ride with the bike idling did it creep up to 223*F and I honestly let it sit for a few minutes just to see what it would do. No boiling over though so I'm quite happy with it. We'll see what happens in the summer. Bottom line, at idle, the water pump circuit just doesn't flow enough liquid through the system. If we could take an X-ray I doubt the radiator would be full just from the way you fill the system, which likely might have something to do with it.

All in all, I'm happy though and both parts do work as advertised.
