A couple more photos, note how narrow the lowers are from the front compared to the Voyager cowlings, allows lots of air flow and heat t dissipate when in traffic.
Looks good Roody. I had thought about doing that when I saw a used lower come up on ebay, but then I remembered that I would have to find another location for the CB if changed the lowers. The CB for the Voyager goes in the left lower in that 'unused' space.
Some guys have just removed the lowers and put Nomad lowers on their Voyagers as well.
Solved, at least my issue is and it's embarrassing
Well after a couple of years struggling with the engine temp running up to the top of the gauge an old time mechanic fixed it........
He was standing looking at the bike scratching his head getting up a Kawasaki Dealer who wouldn't believe it was running hot or out of specs. Anyway when he finished the call he stared at the bike a while longer and asked me when I put the Vulcan laser cut radiator trim on.
When I replied about two years ago he told me to take it off reasoning that if one was to move all the solids into one area the new solid piece of chrome would cover about 1/3 of the radiator thereby reducing its effective surface area.
I took the trim off and the gauge came straight back down to normal operating specs. Even on the hottest days since it has never gone more than halfway between the 4th and 5th marks on cooler days it's not even making fan on.
So I am suitably embarrassed for not thinking of it sooner and a little angry that the various dealers who had the radiator out looking for reasons didn't think of it
So my heat problems are solved. Thanks to all who offered their wisdom and experience, it's nice to be able to go for a ride and trust the bike again.
