you could always put a mesh in the bottom of the belly pan like this to protect the rads

Front mounts arrived this morning (SWEET) looks great! Packing was first rate. (no damage.) The CF front fender that came with it is flawless. You guys at Rothmans/Tyga rock!
Thanks to everybody.

My radiators should be here any day now,

I will be compiling any accurate information on the front radiators compared to stock set up and will post as it is available –
weights-coolant volumes-temps.

I also have a vision for a Carbon framed shroud that will direct more Air flow over the front radiators and also incorporate mesh stone guards and fan mounting points.

Pics of Ika-kun's Install

Hey fellas. Here's a few pics of my install of the Tyga Front Mount Radiator Kit.

My setup will probably look different than most, as I have a 2-1 full exhaust that has a front primary that is bent differently than stock, and therefore needed a little more tweaking and re-routing to fit. Nothing but good things to say about the kit. Enjoy.









(Gotta rep Denso plugs, as I work for them! )

Your point is to try and make these look bad and derail the thread, your usual MO.

As has been pointed out all modern bikes run a fan, any weight gain from a fan would be negligible, especially on the RC51. If you think front mounts allow you to change the laws of thermodynamics then go make your own and sell them to the OEM's as they must be doing it all wrong.

MRGRN, you will NEVER find me posting in one of your threads about your products, your weak attempt here to try and make these radiators look bad shows what a hypocrite you are.

You FLIP OUT when anyone comes into a thread you started about something you make and starts questioning it. I do not do that in your threads, ever. Try and show me the same respect.

Do not reply to this, do not post in my threads and do not PM me.

Please and thank you.

I have not said anything bad about your product despite your attempts to start threads to derail mine, real classy.

http://www.speedzilla.com/forums/rc5...les-mrgrn.html

Here is your respect

I don't think they look bad nor did i imply YOURS are bad i am just curious as to need for fans if i bought some.

back to your rant maybe go refresh the bash Mrgrn thread you started it will make you feel better

what is the warranty on these too by the way??

I have asked simple questions and as a vendor i would have thought answers would not be too much to ask

I have not started any thread about your products, and I DON'T post in your threads, period.

Maybe it is time to bump up the Chronicles of MRGRN to refresh everyone's memory on why you were voted the biggest hypocrite/asshole on SpeedZilla!

Maybe I can use the phrase you like to throw out on your for sale threads to get my point across:

F U C K O F F TROLL!

brett- has offered to do testing so just sit back and wait for the results.
HRC wouldn't of done a front mount setup in the first place if it wasn't superior to the side mounted radiators. As far as a fan goes? How much do you think that one spal fan weighs? Keep in mind you are ditching two stock fans when going to the front mount setup? Are you running a lightweight battery? Can anyone on here say that they would notice a difference in the way a bike handles with the addition of one tiny ass fan?

mrgrn- sent you a pm regarding the single spring setup on the exhaust. I am leaving the country for a few months and I would like to get it done before I leave

MrGrn, why did you edit/delete your post about Rothmans making stuff in Asia and paying 30 cents and not supporting US jobs?

I think the answer to your question has been posted a number of times, just because you run front mounts does not mean you do not need a fan in traffic.

Duh.

I just read some of that thread you posted mrgrn, is this an act or are you really this big of a douche?

Hey Mark, in answer to your question I think that the front mounts with no fans would be better than the stock rads with no fans, but only for a short time. If by riding in "traffic" you mean sitting at the occasional stoplight, then the front mounts will take slightly longer to heat up due to the larger coolant volume. But any radiator system no matter how large will eventually heat up with no air movement. As soon as you add a fan into the system, whether it be the stock rads or the front mounts, they will outperform any cooling system without a fan in standstill conditions.

On another note, as soon as I can afford it I will be buying a set of these front mounts because they look spectacular and Im sure will be superior to the stockers for my intended use. Well done on developing a great looking product Glen.

Jealousy is all I read from you! You HATE that someone made a great product that is getting more attention than any of the Taiwanese junk you resell. I love your little meltdown from jealousy!

Because he buys/sells stuff from Taiwan, that's why! He's been caught selling fake Brembo calipers from China/Taiwan/Thailand so it would just make him look like the hypocrite he is.

Thank you.

I have not noticed any difference between these rads and the OEM side mounts while the bike is stationery. What I have noticed is once moving these rads cool the bike down much faster than OEM. I suspect that once the bike is up to full operating temperature the side mounts absorb heat from the engine hangers. Because the the front mounts are de-coupled from the frame they do not have this problem and overall they provide more efficient cooling. They do have some other issues: yes changing the front plug is more problematic and yes they're more susceptible to stone damage but this is true of any front mount system.

IF your engine is running ALOT of the time much under 180degs., You are doing more harm to the engine (WEAR) then you could ever have imagined! Plus IF you're running much under 160s, not only is the Engine WEAR magnified even worse then the 180s but (as happened to me for a very short time, before I figured out what was wrong!) Now you're in the ECU area of making your Engine run like CRAP with WAY Too much Fuel from the auto enrichener (choke) settings!

I Hope this Helps all of you out!....? Your engine running too cool is NOT good!

Peace Jeff



so if it is so bad to ride with your motor below 180... how are you supposed to ride in winter? even after hours of riding at a pretty brisk pace... i dont get over 170 in the winter.
