I have been researching off and on for the last couple of months of how to get my VFR to run cooler in stop and go traffic. The highest it reach was 239F on the gauge cluster. I have found a couple of options in the forum, 1. run a reverse fan blade from an RC51 2. install a higher CFM SPAL fan, although I couldnt figure out what size fan to run 3. Install slight larger radiators from a 6th gen 4. Install a custom front mount radiator from a Suzuki TL1000R Right now I am like options 2, as I have run spal fans in the past without any issues on both bikes and cars. Or maybe a combination of option 2 and 3. Does anyone know what size fan would fit, a spal 5.5" or so? Also any input on any of the other options is very much appreciated.
highsider989 posted a topic in Maintenance QuestionsI was tracking down a coolant leak on a new to me 2000 VFR. What a chore. Looks like the PO that had the bike just pinched or nicked a hose from the water pump to the wax thingy on top of the throttle body. The bike would lose pressure at 15.5 PSI but would hold just under that. It wasn't overheating but I could smell coolant and in heavy traffic it did run hot. Looks like its been leaking a while. I see some dried coolant on some hoses but that could be old. Anything else to check? So while the throttle body is off the bike should I replace the hoses in the V of the motor? The bike is 15 years old. I know I need to change out the lines to the wax thingy to be safe. Anything else I should do while i'm in there? I'm keeping this bike forever. Thanks... Total for the hoses is about $97.00 shipped..
