Why consider a fan when you could just make a change back to the way it was? Never heard of that being done on an oil-cooler.......not even a 1340cc. Did one on a car once and it was a big waste......only a minor improvement. Why not put the old plugs back in and see how it is?? I can't see the oil being the cause even though "anti clutch slip" seems like another gimmick......R

I run yamalube 20-40 and it works great. maybe those plugs are making the bike over heat. where do you get irridium plugs from.?? what do they cost.

I have looked into them and they say that they burn hotter but I wouldt think it would have that much of an effect as to overheat your motor. The guy at my local shop says theyre over rated, that NGK are the best for my bike (86-750) besides they run about 11 bucks a pop.

My guess is the oil. Put the old plugs back in and try that first, since you can reuse plugs. It's a bitch when you change two things and something goes wrong...

dude you getting ripped at 11 bucks a plug I pay 5.25 a plug for cr9ek I got a 92 I know a bike tech. he says that you gotta watch the changing plugs heat range cause if your not careful your bike will overheat at a stop ight if you go too high.
and at idle also my bike does'nt have a temp gauge so I don't. worry at this time. you got to watch oil also these things have major shearing action going on in those cases, because bike engines share engine oil with the tranny

it is an oil with anti clutch slip properties in it supposed to stop your clutch slipping at high revs works well and i get it as cheap as any another oil so thought i would give it a go
not made my mind up about it yet !!!

I never heard of anti clutch slip oil. I would think that it might be the oil also, Is the Engine Stock?
Hot plugs in a stock compression engine, I doubt it.
Also was your clutch slipping to begin with?
