  1. What about an aluminum radiator? I see all kinds of posts on how they make decent replacements, but hardly anything on swapping out a perfectly good OEM just for the purpose of cooling.
  2. I'm reluctant to put a guard on it even though I should because I tour on it. Do they restrict flow even more? I'd also wonder if one of the reasons the charging systems get taxed so much and fail is because the fan is always on.
  3. It's just amazing to me you can be doing 40mph and still have the fan come on and still be effective.
  4. I probably jumped the gun, it might be slightly cooler. I was expecting more though. It made a big difference on my ZX14R for some reason but that was on a full Yosh, which was gretting rid of a lot more air.
  5. I changed tires and went for a ride. Fan doesn't even come on now.
  6. Far as I know cats are only in exhaust pipes with expanded sections after it meets the mainfold.
  7. I was all excited to brag about how much cooler my bike runs but the difference seems negligible. Cost me $400 including shipping and my bike was down for a month. What sold me was the .015" thickness, much thicker than typical costings. Guess it really is all about radiator flow, but at least now I know for sure. And yes I did paint them black.
  8. Finally rode mine, it does seem grabbier but I have a new master on there now so I can't compare.
  9. Is install the same for an hid kit?
  10. Jaws had an hid kit I'd look into upgrading. Anyone here done that?
  11. I don't like the the stock one at all so maybe this will be better.
  12. Well that sucks, I can't ride mine for a coupe of weeks, how did it change it?
  13. Or you can do it the easy way and get a Brembo with the bleed hole 😀
  14. It's not easy to get all the air out, you may think you have but there can still be some in there.
