I only put a vent on the mag side because my right foot use to feel like it was on fire.

I can tell you this, Iíve never really seen the front radiator/cooler work well (even when I had it running in series all the time). It just doesnít get any airflow through it. However, I was riding 4 west on the power lines by the potato fields Wednesday. The wind was up and straight out of the west. Coolant temps dropped so far that the thermostat was cycling. Zero change in trail/snow conditions. I always thought that I should try to find a way to get air to flow through that cooler better and THEN put it back in a series flow configuration but, Iím old fat and lazy.

Old, fat and lazy here too. Never ride long enough anymore where it is a problem. When I heat up I pull over and throw snow all over tunnel...and watch my soon to be 17 year old drive the piss out of his IQR that rarely gets over 110 degrees while I cool down.
