Mine runs hot, but I have Akrapovik cans on the way to eliminate some of the heat. The fan kicks on at 70 degrees outside, temp stays consistent, but really normal traffic and the fan at 70 outside temp.
My last bike an original 04 950 did the same, ran great with the new exhaust, I'm expecting the same results.
