heat control suggestion

Hello All, this is a suggestion for ALL new 200+hpbikes Not just for MV . I read members posts where they where concerned that there F4/F4RR was up to temperature as they where backing the bike up out of the garage. My F4RR my H2, my buddies ZX10R, and R1 ALL do this . So when I had my F4RR at the dealer installing upgrades I had them take the thermostate out. I normally wouldn't do such a thing but I too thought with new Superbikes making SO much HP per liter they all make a ton of heat instantly . My F4RR never over heated but you practically start the bike and the thermostate is open . WELL with no thermostate the bike gets up to temperature in the NORMAL amount of time . No it doesn't cool the bike any better but I cant believe its good for the engine to be at 200 degrees so quickly even before you start riding . ALSO you eliminate to risk of the thermostate sticking and overheating engine .FYI ..I also had dealer make the fan turn on at 180 degree instead of the factory setting of 207 degrees. I also had the race water pump installed which brings temp down much quicker . If you really want your bike to run cooler have a FEBUR race radiator installed . My 2007 MV F41000R even when riding hard temp stays at 180-185 degrees.

I would love to add a FEBUR race radiator to any of my bikes but, at the astronomical price point of a Febur or the H2O, I'll have to pass lol. Also, with most of those race radiators you lose the cooling fans as there's no room to install them, so constant motion is needed for air flow.

Engines perform best at a certain temperature range. The sooner that temperature is reached the better for the engine.

If engineers have managed to get an engine to optimum temperature quickly from a cold starting engine, without the engine ever overheating, then credit to them.

Can highly recommend bringing the fans on earlier at 95 degrees instead of the stock 105 degrees.
Done with ecustudio. Bike is so much happier and doesn't burn my legs to a crisp anymore.

Had to have a giggle, removing the thermo was a trick we used on our inline MGB's....good old Morris Garage's only designed them to run in the UK. Southern hemisphere temperatures had them running like a front rower at 80 minutes. This is almost an exact version of mine...
