Got off work early yesterday and spent a couple hours installing the kit. Probably could've done it in less time, but I like to take my time with these things and think before cutting. ( I suck at carpentry)
Got it all buttoned up and ran it through a couple of cycling s of the fan to check for leaks. Luckily there were none. Was a bit of a challenge to wrangle the housing in place without both disconnecting the hose and removing the fuel tank. I did prop up the rear of the tank on a block of 2X4 which helped with access.
Today, I went out and gave it a workout. Only rode about 15 miles as it is freezing ass cold and windy here in Michigan today. As Voyager testified in his post about the unit it came up to temp and never wavered from that spot on the gauge for the entire trip till I let it run in the driveway till the fan cycled again. Before it was hot then cold then hot again. Now? no fluctuations at all. Don't know how that will be when the temps get out of the high 30's though. Still, FAR better than before. Kudos to the inventor. You developed a great product that Kawasaki should've included from Japan.
Still wondering about the silver glitter in the drained coolant though. I may drain it again sometime in the near future to strain it out again just to be sure most is gone as it can't be good for water pump seals.
