trx 700 overheating

Hey guys I just got my trx 700 about 2 months ago. I put a barker exhaust, airbox lid and efi controller in today. When I started it up and let it idle for a few minutes the bike began to overheat. I was wondering if anyone else had any issues with there bikes overheating. I have not had a chance to call EHS racing as it was to late in the day. I thought I would ask here first. The fan motor did not kick on and the fuse for the fan was still good. Didn't know if this just happened to be a fluke thing or something I did when installing the exhaust airbox lid and efi controller. Any thoughts would be great. Thanks

Why would you think it was overheating?

Hard to say but I wouldn't think it was overheating if the fan never came on.

keep us posted on what it turns out to be. I would be interested in knowing. Good luck with it.

Even after I hose mine off and I don't run it, will still smoke if there is water sitting on the top or in the fins of the radiator days after when I do start it. It will continue to smoke for a while until it dries out. What I do is take my shop vac and try to blow the water out. It does help a bit.
