Ok so I've got cooling issues on this bike, so far it's my only complaint that I can actually blame on the bike. It just runs hot, does not like the uber technical stuff, then again neither did any of my 300's, but this 450 really likes to blow coolant easily. I know lots of folks are going to say install a fan, but that's not really something I want to do right now, plus funds have gotten a bit tighter and a fan kit is like $150. The other things I've heard is to install a different rad cap, but I think that just let's the bike run hotter before it pops and I'm not sure that's the right answer either??? The other option would be to install a catch bottle so that when it does boil I don't loose the coolant. I know it sounds like I have all the answers but I just have to think there is a different one. I don't see all the Jap bikes boiling in the same conditions, and they are all going slower than me, so it's them who should be boiling...? Just looking for some easier solution that actually works!
