Congrats on the bike and welcome to the forum

One line is a vent line, the other an overflow tube.

Both should lead to underneath your lower fairings onto the road.

Are you hitting those temps while at rest or cruising?

220F on a hot day in traffic is high even.
Thats around 104C, thats hot but then the fan should kick in, mine can run upto as much as 109C in traffic on a very hot day.
But as you say Burton, is that at rest or riding temp:idunno:

Not sure on the 900rr, but on the 929, the water pump is on the LEFT side of the bike and has 2 outlets.

If its leaking, drain your system, remove cover and check gasket. If its fine, inspect hoses for cracks and check the ring clips.

The fan should come on at 210-215F

Along the axis of the pipe the length of the cutout is 30mm.
Across the pipe the opening is 25mm wide on the upper surface of each pipe. The openings in the lower pipes are fairly well filled by the valve, the upper pipes are a full 30x25mm rectangular opening about 8-10mm deep with fairly perpendicular sides. I'd have to measure the position but 600mm from the exhaust valve would be near enough.
