Slowing down while pulling a hill without increasing rpm will increase the temp as you found out ... as already said manually downshift and run about 2000 rpm . You'll notice a big difference. Dutch stars have side radiators so I doubt that's your problem ..

I manually downshift in the Rockies all the time and my temp gage never goes above 190. I used to hit 225-230 and alarm would go off, but I installed new radiator in 06. The fins were rusted out. The MH came from the east coast!!!

Radiator looks good from the outside anyway. Did you heat without a hard pull?
