Love the 2 fans though.
My fan bearings are a bit gritty since I ran the lower temp switch. In off-road the fans were always on and when I was behind other riders their dust gritted up the fan bearings over a season of riding.
I put the stock temp switch back in, made sure the system was burped properly (which is a royal pain) and I never had overheating issues since then. The only time I came close was a 10 minute mountain climb in first gear and high revs the whole way up.
I have the ADVMachines bracket and I like it, but had to add a fan shroud to the right side fan to keep the gas in the right tank from boiling/pressurizing.

Deep roots are not reached by the frost."
