Wow, those look great Glenn!
Any info on what radiator hoses will be needed? Looks like 2 short 90's, a longer 90, 2 45's and a short straight section.


Now I know what I want for christmas.....

It was my pleasure, Glenn. FYI, I just ran again at California/AAA/Fontana Speedway last Sunday with an ambient temp of around 93*F and my SP2 never got hotter than 210*F, and I was seriously spanking her ALL DAY LONG! No fans!!! (I don't even have my Spal installed yet...because I'm lazy.)

My hat's off to you! Nothing but love!

Now only if you guys could make a small rock/debris guard to keep the lower part of the vertical radiator minty!

1989 RC31 - Not very stock, either.

That's great, Glenn! I'm going to need some!

210 deg. on a 93 deg. day sounds too high. I don't get that hot with air scoops and Mori fins with stock rads. Might have to build a shroud to keep the pressure up on the front side.

Stainless steel screen wired to the front works well to prevent damage from rocks and tire chunks.

is this a thread about front mount temps and a question i have asked or is it about a super lean mod?

let's talk about the reason for running a bike in 93 degree heat with a super lean map

what is the normal temps of these rads with no fans on a street bike?

Hey Neil.... This is such a basic thing I can't actually believe you're asking for pictures..

You just go to your local Hardware store and by whatever screen mesh that floats your boat.... and
afix it with safety wire as Jimmy said... It's as easy as putting gas in your gas tank![/QUOTE]

Jeff,

I like pictures!!!

Neil.

MrGrn's posts stink of jealousy. Guy resells Taiwanese knockoffs and someone comes out with a top notch product and he's losing his mind over it. Love it!

So when tuning two strokes tword lean you get much hotter combustion chaimber temps and the water temp increases also.

Temps will obviously vary depending on ambient temperature, setup and what the bike is used for. I made these radiators for myself primarily as I had the Hord engine to cool. Total square surface area is actually a little less than OEM but the cores are 32 mm thick, way thicker than stock. Also, as we know, a significant portion of the stock side mount rads are shrouded by the engine hangers.

I've not had an opportunity to run these front mounts on an OEM motor, I used them to break in the Hord motor and they performed brilliantly. Naturally the motor developed a lot of heat new so I removed the thermostat and fitted 2 x 4" SPAL fans to the lower rad. Now that it's run in a bit I'm not seeing temps much above about 77*C (170*F) on the open road and the fans barely kick in at the lights. As I don't track the bike I'm planning on re-installing the thermostat and then seeing if 1 x 4" fan is sufficient. Terence was kind enough to test the rads with the thermostat in place and so far he's not running a fan. Obviously if the bike is stationary for long enough with the motor running it will overheat.
