    Bill, Ferret here (Mickey), and I have a question for you.

    I have one of my menu items set as coolant temp. The other day I had it on that page and noticed the coolant temp fluctuation like crazy so yesterday I rode for 26 mins at an ambient temp of 42 degrees and switched to the coolant temp page. I was on a flat, straight highway going 63 miles per hour steady and pulled out my cell phone to record it

    Over the next 2 miles (2 mins 3 secs) my coolant temp gauge read in order 159,158,154,156,159,163,172,145,143,149,158,163,16 8,176,147,141,143,154,163,176,174,158,140,147

    Does this sound normal? One would think the coolant would reach a given temp and stay there unless accelerating, going up a hill, stopping for traffic etc ie: different draws on the motor, but not going flat same speed same temp.

    Am I worrying about nothing?

    have you tried it on your 18?

    Bill, I saw you posted in the double risers section and wanted to ask.
    Are you actually running 2 sets of Helibars? Your post said you hadn't needed to change hoses (I assume this is after adding the helibar extension brake line?), and have no problems with the 2 plates?
    I'm seriously considering as I've got less length in my arms and am leaning forward a bit more that I want. Was there any other installation issues, or was it actually as simple as just installing the second plate on the first?
    Thanks ~ I really haven't seen/heard anyone with a newer bike and 2 sets.
