Pro circuit thermo strips - June 8, 2015, 11:22 AM

Thermostrips

When riding a few days ago, I noticed my bike (2013 Husky TXC250r) was overheating really bad (I was on a too technical trail for me and was going really slow) and unsure how long it was overheating for prior to noticing. So i found this product that should help warn if the engine is about to overheat. Anyone use these? These can be placed on the radiatior and engine. But a few questions on these:

1) Where did you mount them on the radiator? I have a radiator guard so I doubt it will be able to measure the temperature accurately.
2) What is the danger zone for engine temp and radiator temp?
3) These are backordered everywhere that I have looked, anyone know if they are available locally or elsewhere? Or a similar product?
4) My bike definitely overheated, but unsure if any damage was done. Any way to find out or should i just ride. I let it sit for a little bit when it happened, pushed it away to an easier part so i could ride faster and continued riding. I havnt noticed any difference performance, or oil leaking or anything. Also, the coolant was still almost full so I dont think much spilled out but the engine was definitely smokng, whether it was coolant spilling or something else, unsure

I want to get these ASAP or anyother temp monitoring system.
Thanks!

Pretty sure that bike should have a radiator fan on it. Might want to be sure it is working correctly.
