I had a great time at the Quail. So much eye candy. The owner of the BSA cafe behind my bike told me has an ATP turbo kit for a kz sitting on the shelf, and that he would "make me a deal of a lifetime" on it. It would be amazing if that came though.

Been riding this bike a lot. Had it down at Laguna Seca for WSBK and Moto America. Camped at the track, good times.

It gets hot here in the summer, sitting in traffic a few times i could listen to the idle change as it started to overheat, a cooler probably wont help with that unless i get a small fan on there (maybe I will?) but I figure anything helps. I think this cooler is supposed to go concave forward but it fits better this way. Does this look stupid oriented this direction?

I've been toying with the idea of putting those 4" Derale fans behind the oil coolers on my '73 Z1-900 and my '78 KZ1000. You can get 180 degree F or 190 degree F thermostats for these coolers. I will get the 190 degree F one ... when I get around to it. I run VDO oil temp gauges and during the summer oil temps easily get beyond 220 degrees F in stop and go (mostly stop) traffic around here in the southeast US.
