Smile I'm attacking the overheating problem - wish me luck !

OK - just started what is going to be a fun weekend project : impeller mod, Muzzy fans, engine ice, header wrap,...
The bike has been dormant in one of the guest bedrooms. Just pulled off some of the fairings and rolled the bike on the deck.
Wish me luck ! I'll keep you guys posted.

Wrapping the headers won't do anything for engine temp but will reduce the radiant heat. If you've got the $$$$ get them coated instead.

I know. Objective is to keep that constrained area up front a bit cooler.

you need to get the dremmel tool out and cut some big holes in those side fairings. That will allow more airflow.

Or buy a pair of Catalyst Composites race fairngs and you get big, artistic holes...but do what you're doing first, worked for me.

since your bike is new why are you doing this yourself? Do you rather do it because you enjoy it?

Aside from the wrap I have had all that done to mine under warranty. But I don't have the tools nor the know-how to do any of that.

the dealer price for ceramic coating was $20 inside and out
got 3 bikes with it

get the spray for the wrap;
