I had the Mac radiator. Mine got up to temp no problems, here in central Fl. Radiator worked ok, it wasnt life changing. It did help with heat soaking after a long track day, but I still got the bike to overheat every once in a while. Better than every session though.
Also I need to note I don’t know 100% sure if I had a issue with my coolant system. I’m not 100% sure I didn’t have a blockage.
I would gladly buy another one if I had a 09-14, it def helps with heat.

I have to give up the street. Missed an entire track season on deployment and had to put my wrist in it on my last favorite on ramp during my first ride. Cold weather ain’t friendly and I’m not too smart. Looking at the front tire on the right side, my lean angle was way to much for the weather temperature on new cold tires. Won’t make this mistake again.

Found a nice small shop owner who wants to write up the estimate and help save the bike.

The rebuild continues. Stay tuned...

Yep. @Tad158 was right. You can guess where I lost traction at the top of the on ramp in this picture. The bike then bucked me off and then slammed on its left side and slid to the other side of the bridge. That’s quite some distance. I ended up in the center of the bridge.
