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.
On Friday, I sold my 6th gen. We just didn't get along unfortunately. There was a lot to like about that bike, but in the department that meant the most there was just nothing there. Yesterday, I brought home my new girl! Yeah, I know you guys know what they look like. You know what they sound, feel, etc... so I won't go on about what you already know. All I can say is that everything I have heard about the fit & finish of this bike is completely true. Now I will readily admit that we are still in the honeymoon phase and want to say that this is the greatest bike that has ever ridden the earth. I'll have to wait a few thousand miles before I pass that kind of judgement. But I do have one honest question... All the negative reviews and opinions that I have read on the net and in magazine; did they ride the same bike I just bought? Granted, I figuratively stole this bike from the dealership... but it is an incredible bike! I would like to thank the guys that replied to my other thread where I was asking about the 7th gen, it really did help sway my away from a few other bikes and stick with the VFR line.
