Re: getting my fe 450 ready to ride.
You'll need to ride it to see if you need these mods or not really. I haven't done anything to my 2010FE450 yet, just barkbusters. All depends on how/what/where you ride if you'll need to worry about boiling fuel, vent lines, etc. I have boiled my bike over once, but I was doing something stupid. I plan to get a fan anyway, because i'll be riding in the heat this summer.
If you're looking for something to do, I'd wrap your header pipe, it'll save you some pant legs and reduce heat. While you're in there, adjust the free play in your throttle cable, or better yet, install those blue cables with inline adjusters in the vendor forum.
