650l

Recommended Posts

I just took the plastic wings off the sides of the gas tank on my new 650l. I think it looks much better. I'm wondering if it is ok to leave them off. Are they critical to engine cooling? My bike is all stock so far, but I did do the smog block off. I've heard it will run too hot if I leave the wings off. Most of my rideing is on road. Thanks.

It`ll run hotter at high speed on slab,jet it properly will help some though,but they were put there for a reason...

get a clarke and you will be fine. trust me you will hate that stock 2.8g very fast.

I ran without wings on my stocker tank for two weeks on the slab, 50deg F it never got very hot, but I don't know about summer temps

Like Brian said they were put there for a reason, running on the slab the bike will get hot.

Put em back on or get a big finned head or oil cooler or both..
