Interesting Youtube video I found to run 1299 30 degrees cooler

I found this video on youtube to help run our 1299's 30 degrees cooler and thought it was pretty interesting. The guy in this video made an on off switch to manually turn his fans on. He explains how to do it and what parts to buy. And even made a diagram drawing. What do you guys think? Is it worth trying this mod out or not?

Thanks from Phl, Thamer, henrypbui and 1 others

Personally from factory it should have the fans come on much sooner then they are doing.
It should be a update or be able to change in ducati software.

Going to have head gasket issues much later on letting coolant reach that high all the time.
Thanks from Dingo

so at what temp do you engage the fan?

I would have thought (and Im tinkering with the idea) that I simply measure the temperature probe Impedance ( I think it sits on the thermostat housing) then connect a rheostat and see how changing the resistance )(ohms) switches the fan on and off I can either fit a resistor in parallel and or series and get the fan to switch on say at 85 degrees C
it will save having to fit a auxiliary switch? it will also be neat and out the way?

Im not great with computers and software but if it were possible with the dealer diagnostics to change that value this would IMO be first price

Canít you just wire in a rheostat to make the fan come on sooner?

My bike typically runs at 70-75 deg on the open road and 95-103 in town with stop go traffic. That is about 30 degrees. The high temps at slow speed is I think mainly for emissions purposes. i.e. the higher temperatures lower hydrocarbon emissions at the expense of nitric oxides, so lowering the high end won't hurt too much but running an engine too cold can increase wear.

If you want to do this tt shouldn't be too difficult to incorporate a temp sensor into the circuit to make it automatic. You may even be able to change the inbuilt sensor.

Cheers

When you say not too difficult? Could you be more specific, like give details
I.e.: what resistance or part number of the sensor? And what resistive value would relate to what temp?
You have furnished a very broad stroke, without adding any detail......are you perhaps a politician by any chance

I believe majority of the aftermarket flash programs can but this should be a option from ducati.

A politician, no, I'm not sure what you are implying with that remark. If it is any of your business I'm an Electrical Engineer. Not too difficult is relative to ability I suppose.

A common trick with temp sensors is to change the calibration of the temp sensor with some passive components, resistors typically. I'm not going to do it to my bike as I don't really see any advantage to it.

Also I am not obligated in any way to expand on any comments I make, just as you aren't. If you held everyone in this forum to your high standards there would be no posts. I'll keep an eye on yours and see if you can even live up to what you require of others.

Cheers

Yes, that would be the best option.
