I bought my 500 in the fall and have only ridden it in the winter so far. The fan came on a couple time in slower climbs so I presume the bike would benefit from a CRT. Anyone have any boiling over issues with the bike in hot weather?
Reference the other questions about re-springing, I installed heavier springs and the bike feels much better now. Very plush yet firm. I weigh 195-205....depending on the season.
The guy that serviced my suspension recently mentioned that the stock valving is quite good on the 500.
