Re: Solution for the cooling problems of the 954

What cooling problems? My bike never overheats even if I'm stuck in traffic on hot humid days.

Re: Solution for the cooling problems of the 954

The boiling point of water is about 212 degrees F, which makes 200-220 a good operating temperature to get moisture and condensation out of the engine, thus preventing corrosion. Mine runs that on hot days.

Unfortunately aluminum block high rpm engines make their best power at a much lower temperature (~180 degrees F). The idea that running over those temps gets condensation and moisture out of the engine is somewhat naive and doesn't address the original poster's question.

If you are running a street bike with a standard antifreeze/distilled water mix, corrosion isn't an issue whatsoever.

Re: Solution for the cooling problems of the 954

Re: Solution for the cooling problems of the 954

Wen i am riding at hight rpm, not in higwai, but in fast corners at low speed ( 60, 80 , 120 km/h), my bike get too 90 degres and loose some power.
I think that is from the over eating.
I have a Micron slip on and a pc3 usb.

Re: Solution for the cooling problems of the 954

Do any of your friends have the same problem?

Has it been happening the whole time you've owned the bike?

Did you recently change your coolant?

You'll have problems with the "overheating" if you have air in your system. Try purging the system of air and see if that helps.

Switch to Evans,

You can run a 0psi radiator cap (no internal pressure on hoses and seals) and never have to worry about your coolant system again.
