5-7 minutes into the run the bike was up to 4 bars and holding steady and the dual fans were cycling on and off regularly, good solid blasts of hot air off both sides, which means the bike was holding steady temp regulation at a lower temp (200F) than before at idle, a good sign.
┐Did anyone try the 200F temp sensor without install the right fan?
┐This 200F water temp sensor is the same found in the auto-stores, I used to have a LS1 wit a 160F thermostat for better performance.

The 990 Open thermostat
The thermostat opens at 75░ C. or 167░F
The fan switches on at 102░ C. or 215.6░F
KTM source.

I will like to test a 160░F temp sensor but could make any harm and were to find this one maybe a auto-stores have a similar one.
