I installed a factory yamaha heater system in my Rmax X2 early this winter, works great when it's cold.
Today was the first time I had it out for a 65 mile run and temp was 74 degrees. Well now I can feel a lot of heat coming up under drivers seat, it did get quite warm in the cab, heater fan completly turned off and vents closed.

So now my next project is to install a water shut off valve in the 5/8' heater hose coming from the engine to the heater, that should help alot in the summer months.
Just a heads up, if you are going to install a heater I would also install a heater control valve.

Thanks

I was looking at amazon today on this very subject. They have a really nice in line valve to shut off the hot water and it's set up to put a manual cable on it for heat adjustment. It was only about $15.

I also am considering this if it wasn’t for lack of room under the tunnel I would put a 3 way valve in before the thermostat bypass tee and another hose and tee in. I still have the thermostat in the head. I just don’t have the room to make that work. It looked good on paper and if it got cold at night just turn the valve. Doing it this way I would be bypassing my 2nd thermostat and using the one in the head the heater would be cool.

The Amazon ASIN # is B001B7BUAU. Just plug that number into the amazon search engine and it comes right up. When you click on the picture it brings up the cable and stuff as often purchased together.
