What's so difficult about it? Once you have the side fairings, key guard, inside trim and mirrors off, it's only a 5-10 min process. Remove the bolts on the inside near the headlight, underneath, and then pop the center mount between the fairing and headlight.

I just received my SBK 2 kit from MAC and I may not be able to install it. Waiting to here back from WERA, but changing the fucking radiator may make my bike illegal for Superstock. I'm leading the pts in that class and I want to win it. Any installation note that you would like to share in case I can install it?
Thanks from Thamer

I haven't received mine yet. Probably at the end of this month. That is the first I've heard about that mod making it illegal to race, but i am going to be racing under FIM rules so maybe thats why it never came up. I will have to check now. I thought you had this problem before?.....or someone here posted about adding an oil cooler and having it void them from racing in a certain class.

I have to scroll through the threads now.

I can't remember what I paid for it, but i sold it never installing it and opting for the SBK2 setup.

I took the fairings off my bike-11160684_354513908087370_1554085181385399479_n.jpg

I didn't pay retail for this one either, but thats cause I knew the guy making them when he was just starting out, and did a little advertising for him. I can tell you that your should be able to find his stuff online. Way cheaper than any other similar system out there. Top quality!!

Thamer, the radiator mod just makes my bike illegal for super stock, but I race in two other Superbike classes that I the mod is legal for. I think it's stupid, but I'm waiting to clarification.
Thanks from Thamer

Would febur's FE1331 add-on water cooler still be legal for superstock Leon? It's supposedly what it was designed for. Not super expensive either.

Ummmmh, I have to disagree with it being easy and straightforward. Too many screws, considering how many (fragile) plastic tongues and clips.

As one of the first shipped, my 1199 landed before dealer workshop training, so this is what happened when they tried to figure out how

I'm still waiting to an e-mail back. The field here is pretty thin on riders, of course I say that and ill be sitting on the same grid with Alex Cudin, Nina Prinz, Not to mention a bunch of growing local talent.....lol. Because of this I don't think they'll say anything about my cooling system. I cold be wrong.

It is marginally better than water, as it turned out.
But where the ducati coolant would keep the bike below 100 in winter traffic, my water+mocool mix were at 103-104.
