Vesuvio Impeller

Fitted to 312r - worked wonders - runs much cooler with no overheating even in traffic. Quality!

I am interested as well because I just switched my coolant from the nasty green stuff to the awesome water wetter. Bike runs cooler for sure but it still dont like traffic.

Wasnt warranty work - I paid £160 for the impeller and about £40 to have it fitted also had Muzzy fans fitted at the same time - used to see 116-117 flashing on temp display now doesnt go beyond 106 even when its warm and going below 20mph.

Did you test it with just the impeller before installing the extra fan? I'm trying to figure out if one or the other will work.

The OEM fan blades are made from plastic and are known to melt due to the close location of the headers. The fans alone will not do much.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

I did the Muzzy's first...very little diff. Added the Impeller, very big diff. Glad I did the fans though, as I have piece of mind that they won't melt.

Just a freiendly note: Water Wetter doesn't have any freeze or corrosion protection. It is primarily used in track application where the slick properties of coolant are detrimental to track adhesion in a crash. I wouldn't rely on it for engine protection. There are other products out there (Engine Ice for example) that provide both corrosion protection and freeze protection while lowering running and idle temperatures significantly.
