With the 93/94 models its nice to switch to a low maintenance coolant like the Evans or Engine Ice, then you don't have to be flushing out every two seasons. Aside from that, though a dumb design, it shouldn't matter that much, given the low access requirements. Top ups are always via the overflow anyway.....?????
I am gathering that the ZX7 mod is mainly for cooling improvements.
yeah it shouldn't matter that much but in the case of having a hose rupture or come loose
it sure would have been nice to have easy access to a filler neck instead of having to strip the bike down to just fill the rad back up. It would have made a simple 10 minute job instead of an hour of sweating my ass off in 100 degree heat.
But yeah I've heard for the longest time the ZX-7 radiator worked well at keeping the GSXR engine cooler.....
Yeah Dan, f&%king ruptures are not too sweet, especially when they soak the tire...ugh!! A few years back I bit the bullet and did a full oem purchase and replaced them all.... $$$$ OUCH
I've got a shitload more oil cooling, which has saved the day by a long shot for now. I'm hoping that it will suffice once the engine gets rebuilt. I realise its heresy, but I really DON'T want any more projects on the bike
