and good suggestions on the fan and heat blockers. im sort of afraid of wrapping the header as I do some wet riding but will take it all apart and see what more I can do to stop heat transfer.

thanks again
I run 87 ethanol free all the time, runs great.
For the heat, I had my exhaust ceramic coated at Jet-Hot, made a big difference.
