Just throwing this out there as a reminder to clean your radiator. I am pretty good at cleaning mine after each ride but didnt do it after the last ride up the moutain and had to do some work on one of my front shocks and got looking at the radiator and 25% of it was block up with mud. So I uesd Kathy's flower watering wand that has a 90 degree head on it and it washed right out.

At SSRT last April I was having issues with running hot (not enough to throw the light on) but caused sputtering and hard starts. Took the front grate off and cleaned it, but it was not enough. Had to remove it completely to clean it out. Now I make sure I wash it out after each ride to prevent that again.
