ok i live near dallas, and spend a lot of time commuting there. the problem is that when traffic stops, my bike is so close to overheating, and a couple of time i have had to turn it off while sitting in traffic because the temp gets so hot. so here is what i am going to do. i am going to buy that fabric that you wrap the headers on a race car with, that heat resistant stuff. i am hoping this will work, i will let you all know. i am also thinking about adding a second fan on the right hand side of the radiator, but we will see how much that costs.

ill let yall know how it turns out, and if i remember, ill take pics.

I'm not sure how exhaust wrap will help, since it's meant to keep the heat inside the pipes to optimize gas flow. Best bet - cut that cat converter out of your headers. It is pretty easy to do and your temp will drop at least 10 degrees.
