My dealer says F4's dont have an over heating problem

exactly as the title says he told me this when i told him i wanted muzzy fans on my bike so it would help with the cooling i couldnt convince him that the bikes run hot and this was the owner really nice guy though not trying to bash him or anything

well, you can obviously tell he is just a dealer and not an owner
but i guess you cant expect every ferarri dealer to own the latest ferrai either
at least they are a good person.....

Italian outfit, Rubber, heat, grunting, and you fill the open hole for more?? What's not to love??

Actually he's right. They don't overheat, they run hot.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

YA great guy was actually on the bonneville team that did the run with the f4 but i mean dude it runs hot and i just want the fans put on and i rather have it just done without hearing it doesnt over heat he said if you turn the bike off and its not boiling it doesnt over heat, my plans are muzzy fans and water impeller until i save up for a full system

Run it hard one day and as soon as you get back turn it off let the fan blades melt then bring it back to him and tell him you think it runs a little hot...

I have checked my fans and they seem to be just fine. I guess I am lucky but I dont want my fans to melt regardless.

comon guys.....we all know throttle control is the key to solving this heating problem.
the faster you go, the more cool air flows through, the lower the temperature drops.

Problem solved......

Sammy Bono, who's the chica in your avatar...?

Your dealer is wrong. The 1000R and the 1000 Senna do have an overheating problem. As has been covered on this forum, it's because of changes to the primary drive ratio from the crankshaft to the ancillary drives. The water-pump now spins too slow at low rpm's. Get one of the aftermarket pump impellers and if possible get rid of the catalytic converter. My Senna no longer overheats.... there's been several really good posts on the subject.

And......A Ducati dealer says Ducatis are better than MVs.
Also, 996, 998 and 848 will never have a 9000RPM glitch problem.
Local importer says, don't go above 9000RPM then you won't have this problem..

Motorcycle is more than just a transport.

Agreed and therefore I Dont think it has an overheating problem. It does get warmer than other bikes but thats because of the radiator being sort of enclosed like and also the fairings being fully covered. But other than that no probs.
