Google maps has it at 250 miles. I'm all the way into the mountains, not far from TN. There are a bunch of fantastic rides around here.im game after some new shoes. how far are you from raleigh?
Sweet. I'm hoping for some temp reduction with the Engine Ice, bike hits 215-220 in motion (when revving high) as it sitsJust did it myself last week. Flushed with 3 gallons of distilled water total. Filled with water wetter and a distilled. Only loosened one or two bolts on the rad to get the res out to flush it.
Complete job from start to finish took less than an hour.
Definitely great riding up there!!!Google maps has it at 250 miles. I'm all the way into the mountains, not far from TN. There are a bunch of fantastic rides around here.

FWIW I'm in Savannah and we're already in the 90's and I saw 20 ish degree drop but that's with water wetter because I'm not to worries about cold protection.Akilldema,
Engine ice only helps a little bit, like 5 degrees. Put 2 Spal pusher fans behind the radiators and add a manual switch. I can keep the engine temp below 190 on the hottest days using this setup (although I'm sure it gets much hotter where you are).
Poolboy, if your running temp used to be 215 while moving you probably had some air in the system somewhere. The manual has us blipping the throttle a handful of times with the bike on the sidestand to burp the system and purge the air from it. 186 sounds much better. QUOTE]
Negative... Definitely one of the things i checked when I first bought the bike. I changed the engine and clutch/brake brake fluid. And I burped the system a couple times while I had the fairings off to kill two birds with one stone. I just changed the oil again and went to W.W. and new spark plugs while I was at it.
I think its just the 105 degree road temp and 1,000,000,000% Humidity lol.
However this could be the case for someone in a colder climate
