hmm... I don't think that has anything to do with the changing from Big3 to stock. I don't know what it is though. Maybe try flushing coolant and putting in new stuff?

but when i had the big 3 on i could ride in the hottest part of the day (in 1st to 3ed gear) all day and it would not be this hot.

If you took the fi controller off it could be lean. If it is running lean it will run hotter than normal. Just a thought.

:confused: It wouldn't be running lean if it had the stock exhaust and stock intake with lid on without a controller... But you could be right, it wouldn't hurt to check the plug and see if it's whitish greyish.

a little more info..
i looked at the plug its light brown.
i let it idle for like 1 or 2 mins and the fan kicked on.
with any mod i have ever had on it i could idle all day without it coming on.

The t-stat could be stuck closed, or a air pocket in the engine. I would change the t-stat just because it is fairly cheap. Then pull the plug out of the t-stat housing and make sure to bleed all of the air out when filling with coolant.
