F4 750 Overheating

Does anyone know if the f4 750 has the same overheating problems as the 1000? My logic sais that due to the smaller displacement and smaller power output the heat produced will be less. Am I right or wrong? Or the 750 suffers from the same overheating problems of the 1000?

I had an EVO2 750 before my 1000s and used to always wonder what the overheating threads were all about. Don't think I ever saw it get over 101 celcius. It used to get up to that then the thermo fans would hold it there or even drop it a little bit.
Since I bought the 1000 I know what they are talking about but.

My Ev03 suffered from a fan relay failure and thus boiled over - I had to refill with water and thereafter it overheated in traffic.

Since replacing the coolant with proper stuff (Water Wetter at present), no issues.

Welcome, Alex. The short answer is no.
From memory there was a single radiator version (model year 2000) and then a twin radiator version (2001 and after), and only the single rad got a bit warmer, but neither overheated. In any case you'll find plenty of info here about the 'overheating' on the 1000 and 312. I've had a 750 and now a 1000, and found the 750 running 5-10 degrees celsius cooler on the same run with similar weather, but I'm on the side of those who believe there's no overheating problem when you ride the bike for its intended purpose. That is, the F4 is not the ideal bike to ride in heavy, congested traffic in the city for long periods. Hope you enjoy your bike.

+1

same problem as Harvey where the fan would not cut in at high temps whilst riding in town traffic

took days to find the problem, then pennies to fix

once relay was replaced, no heating problems at all, fan cut in as normal and kept temps down

(but then again Scotland ambient temp is lower)
