Not really.

If you're stuck in traffic and the bike's just sitting there it'll still reach those temps.

Only when you're constantly moving (fast) will you notice the temps drop by 5-10 degrees.

stock exhaust wanted to be herd not hit.
What?

engine was turing i think around 5g not 100% positive was looking more at the road and temp.
sounds about right. 5-5.5k RPM. still, that a tad high for just puttering don't you think? tap up to 2.5 to 3K (3rd or 4th gear) and you'll notice cooler temps. you're cutting the bangs per minute in half.

Engine Ice does not make my bike run any cooler . I think the water wetter & distilled water will allow it to run cooler. Water is best for cooling purposes . I have read that somewhere and I will go back to water wetter & water soon.

if you think a loud exhaust is going to make Mr. Cadillac think twice about pulling out, you're sadly mistaken. when he shuts his door, he can't hear a friggin thing what's going on outside. hell i have a Cheap Trailblazer and i can barely hear a sport bike coming at me let alone behind me (where it's going to matter for you).

i have been driving down here for about half a year and had the bike only about 3 months and when ever im sitting in traffic in the car and a bike come by you can hear it when its over 5 cars behind you when its turing a few K rpms. stock exhaust at 2-3k i doubt i would even hear till it was right next to me. i know its not going to keep every car from hitting me but it keeps just one it does its job.
