Hi lariseos,

I'm assuming that you are talking about keeping the bike cool yes?

Buy the fan kit that bolts onto your bike, this will keep the bike from boiling over. I have not heard of anyone who has boiled their bike over after installing this fan kit.

Next, use a good header wrap like DEI titanium header wrap http://www.designengineering.com/catego ... technology to help keep the heat out of the gas tank.

DEI also makes this material http://www.designengineering.com/catego ... flect-gold to put onto your gas tank to help keep the heat out of it as well.

CV4 also makes this tank blanket http://www.cvproducts.com/Powersports/P ... =Fuel+Kool

If you are not running the Husaberg hard parts aluminum gas cap, and are still running the stock plastic cap, disassemble the cap and remove the little ball check valve to keep pressure from building up inside the thank.

On my 09 FE570 I just run the DEI header titanium header wrap, and the factory fan kit. I do plan on putting on some of the DEI stick on barrier.

In some extreme cases I have boiled the fuel a little on my bike but most of the time it is not an issue. I ride in conditions ranging from -8C to 40C. Last summer I did a bunch of very tight technical riding, 1st and 2cnd gear mainly, at high elevation (3000 meters +) at 25 to 29C and the fan never had a problem keeping the bike from boiling over, in fact it would cycle on and off. The fuel did percolate once I was parked on the side of the trail, but as long as I kept moving it was fine.

Hey Dale, When you rapped your pipe, did you rap over the joint in the pipe by the right leg? Or did you rap each piece seperately? How much rapping did it take? Did you use the 1" or 2" rap? I have been wanting to rap my 450's pipe and have never done one before. Other than the gas and engine cooling properties, a little protection would be nice. I am still recovering from a second degree burn to the back of my leg from the pipe. It wasn't a nice feeling.

Ouch!!! Sorry to hear about your leg!! I forgot to mention that I have a Akra carbon guard on the first header pipe to keep that from happening.

I only have the "mid pipe" wrapped at this time. However I don't see why you couldn't wrap the first header as well. The DEI material that I mentioned will handle it.

I bought a 25' roll of 1", it's much easier to work with. Additionally, I wrapped over the stock heat shield that is under the tank and is attached to the mid pipe so that no metal part of the pipe is exposed under the tank. I wrapped it all the way to the muffler joint.

However, you may want to leave a gap in the wrapping where the pipe is closest to the spring, as the spring occasionally touches the pipe there, at least on my bike it does.

Another thing you can do is to cut/drill holes in your front fender to allow more air flow over the motor area. If you look at a lot of the factory mx bikes they have what looks like an extension that is riveted on in this area that has replaced the stock front fender. If you can find a picture of the factory Honda bikes you'll see what I mean. I have seen some of the top level riders like Lafferty drill holes in the back side of the front fender, and then attach a wire mesh over them to protect the bike from rocks and other debris. In heavy mud the mesh will plug up pretty quickly. So it's a bit of a trade off, but, if you ride in mostly hot dry conditions this would let a lot more air flow through.
