C3 heated bars, Voyager Pro gps, Pro Circuit Ti6 exhaust with carbon tip, and seriously giving thought to a Selkirk armour system..
Pretty chuffed to see some snow!

Oh man, jealous of the heated bars. I bought electric ones but my stator isn't beefy enough. I'd love to do the Selkirk too... more consistent temps would be so nice. The PST blanket is great, but I can never keep the bike cool enough on the trail, even with it pulled down halfway.

Something is not right. Cooling system on the bike should work just fine with the rads alone to keep it cool. Are your rads iced over when you get on the trail? Are you running any kind of rad blockers in the powder? We run completely enclosed engine covers and have no issues. We do run rad blockers and cycle them in and out as needed to keep temps right in range. If you keep your rads clear the bike should be fine, the engine blankets do not keep enough heat in while you are moving to contribute to overheating.

Generally nope to iced over in the instances I'm talking about, yes to rad blockers. Thermobob Tstat temp gage just to pre-empt that one. The rad blockers + blanket are enough to keep my temps up on most above 0F powder days, but even with them removed and no ice I'll overheat on the trail when I have to go slow on trips with new snowmobilers. Some freezing mist days I'm sure the rads do get iced over as I'm riding the trail.

I'd love to fully rad delete and use heat exchangers, just to not **** with them anymore. Even on days where things are working well it's annoying as hell to be knocking ice off and swapping rad blockers around. I only haven't so far because I've got no fabbing experience to rig something up, and haven't found anyone selling something that'd for sure fit my CMX kit.

Have you gotten your Selkirk kit yet? Reasin I ask is, I've just placed my order (no snow for weeks yet so no biggie) but the instructions say to remove the stock plastic rad guards.
I have Devol Ind. rad guard setup, and id reeeaallllyyyy like to keep them in place.. are aftermarket rad guards something that can be utilized still, with the Selkirk? Any mods I should be asking for? the order literally only went in a day or two ago...
thanks in advance !

The old kawi 450 does his job but during spring riding I had terrible heating issues so now I’m waiting for a tunnel cooler from C3 for my Yeti I’m really stoked on this upgrade

I hit 218* last spring pulling a long climb WOT zig zagging with both covers folded down, just not enough speed. I thought about this option, but blew my budget going with a whole new kit so I rigged up a 5800RPM fan on the one rad, hopefully it will help, it really moves the air. Maybe next year this will be something I do also.
