I have a laser digital thermometer, just point the laser at anything and read it temperature.
After warm up, Started the bike and took some temp readings, while engine was running.
All cylinders are within 1-2 degrees of each other, so i think that the engine is running very well.
I also used this thermometer to check the center manifold, if it does ice or freeze, i can take a temp. very quickly.
I took temp.'s at the Oem intake manifolds, Heads, and cyl top of engine, VW manifold, after bike was up to temp.
Surprising the Temp issue of Icing or freezing did not seem to be a problem, The VW plenum was at 103 degrees, if the fuel was freezing, i would think the VW Manifold would have been much colder.
I did for now anyway, remove the Cover behind the radiator, this allows more radiator heat to get back to the VW manifold and the Carb., and provide heated air to the carb intake while running, this may be a big help.
