Yes, I know, but the twist throttle on r1 has 2 cables but knob throttle goes only 1 cable..
As long as Im moving the bike would stay cool but as soon as I would slow down and come to a stop for a long period of time it will over heat.Hi, Awesome quad by the way i have just read the thread from start to finish but we have met before on the R1 forum anyway.
I wanted to ask about the cooling system, as i noticed that you are using the standard radiator.
You also mentioned that you blanked off the oil cooler pipe.
I have a few questions that maybe you could answer.
I use mine for prolonged road use and feel that the cooling system isnt quite up to the job.... its not too bad now but i think in the summer it might be a problem, i have a large core radiator but it was a cheap chinese thing so not too sure if its better or not really.
1. How does the standard Rad cope?
2. Regards the oil cooler pipe, I made a "Tee" piece for mine and tapped into the top hose but i dont like the way i've done it and would like to remove it if possible. Did you just cap it on the outlet or did you cap the inlet too?
Any info would be great
Mines the opposite. We just got back from a week at St Anthonys, it was high 80's and mine would run around 180 most of the time, I saw 200 a couple of times. When I would stop though, it would instantly start to cool down. I have the stock 03 R1 rad in mine though with a big fan. It was my first time on an R1 Raptor. Absolutely awesome machine, I won't be riding my Kawi v-force much anymore, it's like :banghead: compared to the R1.As long as Im moving the bike would stay cool but as soon as I would slow down and come to a stop for a long period of time it will over heat.
