Thermo-Bob

Just finished installing the Thermo-Bob.Works as it should.Tempature stays steady like it should.NO more up & down on the gauge.Last ride I took before doing this Mod the gauge was all over the place.Now it's stay way it should.And the engine warms up much faster and I swore the engine is quitier.Now for the acid test a road trip.Will report back.

Has it been friggen hot or what!?! I just added one along with the 685 I just installed. It delivers consistant temps as promised whether it's 45* or 105*, which is something I never saw before.
