Welcome to the forum!

The radiator fan doesn't come on till about 120 degrees celcius if I can recall. Mine sits on 60-80 degrees whilst riding, depending on the temp that day. If the fan has to come on then it's probably not such a good thing. Mine has only come on once before and I was sitting in some bad traffic.

I'm an 04 girl so I cant comment on the Yoshi situation. They do make quality pipes though and everyone that has one on the 05/06's are happy. They just stick out a little far for my tastes.

thanks for all the replys. someone had told one of my friends that his bike was starting to overheat if it got above 200 so i wasn't sure. also can anyone recommend any frame sliders that will not require modification of the body work?

I'm new also, but welcome anyways :thumbup
I was also thinking of getting a new pipe on mine. Can't figure out if I want the Yoshi or Two Brothers.

all these exhaust choices can make a guy go mad! same with frame sliders... what is the sign of a good set of frame sliders. i figure if it seems real cheap on ebay its not worth even using.
