Hi folks! I'm going to change the thermostat this spring and I've had a look at the service manual but there are a couple of things that I'm wondering about. In the service manual it says that you should change the o-rings for the pipes that bolt to the engine block, do you really have to remove those? Can you open the thermostat housing without removing it? How on earth do you get the throttle body back on the bike? What sort of stuff do I need to buy, is it enough with the thermostat and the o-ring for the thermostat housing? Anything else I should think about? /R
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.
