I'm pretty sure all is WELL. The Thermo-Bob / Thermo-Bob 2's WHOLE REASON for being invented is because, Stock and Standard the KLR650 runs TOO COLD!
Even in Phoenix, AZ. where it was invented.
Just under 1/2 to 3/4 gauge is Great! No need to fret unless the gauge go's Beyond, 15/16ths of the hot zone. Which I doubt it will in normal riding, unless you bend/damage the fan or fan support or the radiator itself.
Modify at "YOUR OWN RISK"!
Still riding my 1987 KL650-A1. 85,000+ miles & counting
