Radiator/streetfighter
« on: October 14, 2017, 03:13:40 pm »
Hello everyone,
So after 2 years of riding it stock, I decided to make a streetfighting of my VF1000F. So I remove all the front ferings, to attack the first problem, radiator.
My first instinct was to relocalize, since it's already a warm bike and the sensor and cap are there, but these just no place for it.

-So, is anyone as ride long enough with just the main radiator? is the bike really risk to over heat?

-As for the hose it's self, they are so old, I have difficulties to get the right diameter, I can read 32mm on some 34 on others, what's the correct size?

-As for the sensor, of what I understand, most people have already bypassed that to have the fan running none-stop?

-any other suggestion of parts I can remove, I have already removed the gas pump,, running on gravity as fine.



Thank you

The main rad is too small IMO.  Look into a VF700/750F lower radiator perhaps to supplement.
