Radiator swap

What models/year can fit on our watercooled models?

Becaus i use gsx-r 1000 yoshimura trs exhaust and i plan to run without ventilator.

I have no alternator so when the fan starts to run it consumes much of my battery power.

So by fitting a larger radiator perhaps i dont neef a fan afterall?

When the fans turns doenst that mean the enginecoolant is to hot?

And the fan weights 1kg so by using a lighter, larger radiator i can possible save 1.5-2kg?

I have found out that some people mentioned a zx7r radiator but i havent seen picutures on a watercooled, are these lighter then the stock radiator (1.5kg)?

Re: Radiator swap

You don't need a fan on a track bike, it's for street bike that sit at stop lights and overheat without one.

It adds weight and interferes with cooling by blocking air. Take that shit off and stop draining the battery on total loss, i run total loss too.

We run ZX7 radiator on srads, never put on on WC.

Re: Radiator swap

What are the dimensions of the zx7r radiator?

So that i can compare it with my stock radiator to see if i can still fit it with my yoshimura trs exhayst from a gsx-r 1000.

Re: Radiator swap

ZX7 Rad Fits, But you need to trim factory plastics & that includes the lower V panel on an 1100. Mounts need to modded as well as Oil Cooler relocated. I relocated mine under the Seat. Mine has twin Busa fans, Stays nice and cool, now matter how hot it gets or traffic, etc. Can even upgrade the fan blades to Aluminum type from Muzzy for further cooling in hotter climates. I'll post pics when I can find them.

Re: Radiator swap

Well i have a different plan, since i dont use the fan anymore i can put a smalle radiator behind my oem one to increase the cooling capacity.

Like so:
