taking the grills off the radiator. For those who don't remember I had
put a Supertrapp exaust on with PCIIIusb and could not get a proper
Dyno cause my bike would overheat. My dyno guy swears it was the grills on the radiator. Tomorrow we shall see......

Where are you going to Glendale? Daniel said something about a V-Rod overheating in the dyno chamber because of the grills.

Hey Kaz,
Sorry we did'nt hook up in Vegas. (next time bro)
I'm hoping they are wrong in thinking that its the grills ....
But if it overheats tomorrow....... thermostat?????.......
I think each dyno is very different in its own right., environment, amount of airflow, fans, etc.

My bike got real hot inside too, but I didn't have the grills in it. It should be fine, it cooks though.

Well it turns out that I had a sticky thermostat, hence the overheating.
Can't get the part till Tuesday so they loaned me a Softail Classic.
Oh by the way Rick, Daniel said you are crazy.... :cheers:
