LOL.

Reminds me of my old ford escort which was so overbored if anything happend to that engine i dont think you could rebore it and use it again. (cheapest was to get extra cc out of it at the time)

Anyhow, that was the only way for it to run cool, do big speeds in it.

I don't understand why people get so upset over questions, I personally find it a bit confusing to find the exact information I'm looking for, so why not ask a question, we don't all have brand new bikes and well maybe after years of people dealing with this issue, someone found a solution and didn't post it on an older thread and may be willing to share some insight as to how they went about addressing the issue since it was just brought up, whenever I do ask questions on an older thread, I get the "why are we bringing this back to life" comment. Seems that unless it's a question about a newer model some people aren't happy. Well I will get off my soap box and thanks to everyone for the information and suggestions.

who is getting upset over questions. its this constant stupid thread since 2012 this bike is hot that people get upset over. why because its stupid rambling. sport bike means your sitting on an engine that gets to 220 degrees hmmm maybe its hot who would have guessed it. try liquid performance coolant or engine ice.

I’ll say this, most sportbikes get hot. RSV4 that preceded my 1299S, hot. My S1000RR that preceded the RSV4, hot. But this is the only bike that gets insanely hot to where I can’t grip the tank with my knees, AND this is the only bike where speed does not alleviate the heat problem. It’s as hot at 20 as it is at 80.

My 1299 cooled down after recalibrating my ECU with an upgraded tune for Shell Nitro 93

The new software calls for my fans to turn on early now which is a great improvement. The bike is tuned for its Akra exhaust and the fueling is right on so I’m thinking that the improved Air:Fuel ratio has a big impact


If that doesn’t reduce your exposure to heat enough (it will) let’s take it one more step

big radiator:
Or

How about upgrading to this so it doesn’t heat soak like the factory metal one

And lastly, install some heat shielding

Today we have the tools to help make our bikes run more comfortably and even go far beyond and get carried away with a bunch of needless “upgrades”
No more complaining

Also a vote for the tune with lower temp the fan comes on.

Ducati has the fan set to come on when it’s about to boil over it seems factory. The tune I have lowered temp that it comes on and the bike is pretty decent to ride in traffic now. Prior to the tune and fan temp it was even hot on highway let alone sitting at a traffic light.

I was going to order the heat shields but tune made so much difference I don’t feel I need them. That may change this summer though we shall see.

AmpForE, do you go through bikes quick or are you building out a collection?
