Radiator - 15R - running too hot

Hi All,

I am currently running a 15R on the track. I live in Dubai and we have some quite high temperatures here, especially in summer time. Until now, I have been using an upper and lower MAC radiator system (pls see pic), however, the bike has a tendency to run very warm on the track.

I am considering going for a full WSBK radiator system, but in doubt if I will experience any significant difference from the setup I have. I can see that some of the full radiator systems cover a larger area compared to my current system.

Do anyone have any experience with which radiator systems provide the most cooling and if there are any difference between the brands out there?

Looking forward for some advise

I don’t have any advice for the radiators available, but your photobucket link is dead

I do know that if you don’t overheat & fans work you’d be ok...if you’re not competing then simply running on higher side of temps isn’t a bad thing

What temps are you experiencing?
Did you leave your fan and fan shroud fitted, or have you dumped them?

Standard coolant, or something like water wetter or other non glycol additives?

Sorry for that - I hope the pic is working now.

When it is +40 degrees outside, the bike will run around 105-108 degrees at the end of a session.

The fan is gone as no room due to the radiator.

I run standard coolant but I have been considered if I should try Engine Ice or similar.....

Mine does this as well (Febur rad, no fan). As soon as you come off the track T starts shooting up...I coast into my pit...turning the bike off. Last year it was really climbing and Brian found the pump had sheared a pin (thread somewhere here) and that was the cause-

102 - 105 is around where the fan cuts in on mine so I'd say you're alright. The fact you are in 40+ heat I'd actually say you're running exceptionally well.

Sounds exactly the same as mine.....so did you replace the pump or what was the solution?


.....and how was the result after fixing the issue?

Yes, replaced pump. Made a big difference. If we're at Chuckwalla in the hot desert...it just gets hot...even through leathers coasting into the pits...really hot.

I'm just in the middle of fitting the same radiator kit. The standard fan unit will
fit if you dont add an oil catch pan. If you have the oil catch pan, then you still
have room to fit a different fan unit across the rear of the lower oil/water rad.

I had a couple of spares fans from a 2011 multistrada and its possible to
mount one on a couple of bits of aluminium flat bar from the original fan bolts.
Plug is the same as the pani harness too.
