Apologises for my ignorance but what does this do and what effect would it have

It appears to be an aftermarket addition to the cooling system to improve cooling. It looks like an auxiliary water pump is one of the parts.

From the English catalog:


The MWP is a patented electromechanical system for regulating the temperature of thermal or electric engines.
The system uses two main components: the electronic control unit and the water pump.
The control unit reads the engine temperature data using a can and, an additional sensor inserted in the electric pump, determines the radiator’s ability to dissipate heat. It intervenes by managing the fans and the speed of the liquid inside the system, making the most of the efficiency of the electric pump.
The control unit proportionally manages both the fans and the electric pump.
Based on the set target temperature, the flow of liquid (irrespective of the number of engine revs.) and the power of the cooling fans increase autonomously without waiting for the engine to reach 100° centigrade.
The electric pump fitted on modern engines
guarantees a completely new level of efficiency, increasing the capacity of the original radiator by 30% to dissipate the heat of the engine.
For example, while driving in city traffic at reduced speeds and low rpm, the pump could operate at maximum speed, something which only occurs at full speed in the case of a mechanical pump.
In recent years, the ever higher specific powers of engines, combined with increasingly stringent anti- pollution regulations, have resulted in an increase in engine operating temperatures. While driving in the city, the engine often reaches temperatures in excess of 100°C.

Anyone ride daily in 90-100F and traffic?

So, the TL;DR is this thing takes control of fan and coolant pumping, regardless of the rpm, to maximize radiator efficiency even when the bike is at low idle.

Cool.

So I added heat tape to my seat last weekend, based on torrific's earlier post.

I didn't have access to the Zircoflex he used - very pricey stuff native to Australia - so I just used this from the local auto parts store:

https://www.oreillyauto.com/detail/b.../4240651?pos=0

Took me about 2 hours in total to cut all the shapes and apply:



Rode the bike all this week, and my observation is that the heat from the seat has gone from "warm" to "lukewarm".

Overall, an easy mod if you want to try.

I’m just curious. Would a full exhaust system help with the issue?

I will second this...a good pair of riding jeans will help deal with a lot of the heat. However, it will always be warm..not making excuses for Ducatis but they have always rode pretty warm.

I've noticed after the full Akra its still warm but not alarming like it was before. Before exhaust I would have to dangle my leg to get some air across it. Now its not getting hot enough to warrant that.
