"The last 3 years ive been in wyoming where it hardly gets above 90 deg"
Huh ? I was tooling through town (Cody) just yesterday, stuck behind a bunchof lumbering RV's (all of them likely heading to Jellystone or Walmart parking-lot for the night) every red-light caught me...too many cops around to split-lanes, and they WILL pull a bike over & write you up if they catch you doing it, btw) and temps were EASILY 95/98...
...after I parked, my fan stayed on for at least 5 mins...so yeah..it gets over 90 here in Wyo...lol
(and I have darn sure spent a fair amount of time fixing-fence up in Montana in 115 degrees, over the years)
After yesterday, I am giving serious-thought to pulling all three plastic upper-fairing fascia's (especially the two on both sides of tank) to allow more heat to escape from under the gas-tank...and might even pull the lower-cowling for the summer, if yestrdays temperatures (in mid-June) are any indication of what's yet in-store for us.
Has anybody tried any of those coolant-modifiers yet ? There's one I've been seeing at Walmart & Autozone...the name escapes me at the moment, but I'm wondering if it helps or if it'd just end up 'diluted' along with whatever-else is in overflow-tank, after hot-weather city-driving ?
