Other than the melting issue any reason to go Muzzy?

Its about time to refresh my coolant, slap on new hoses and give the system a good bleed. In doing this I drop the radiators so I am debating, should I just drop the coin and get the Muzzy fans for my 02 750?

I haven't had any issues with deformation of the original fans so I don't need to resolve that issue, more just curious if anyone has seen any positive impact of just the fans in the absence of the melting blades.

The bike doesn't really go over 103 anymore except in extreme conditions (coming through some bubba town after blasting all over and getting stuck in the middle of a high school parade) but if $80 and a bit of my time will help my baby run cooler (and possibly prolong the life of components) I'm willing and able.

Searches bring up dozens of melted fan threads but nothing about us early guys whose bikes just ran a little hot, not bursting into flames at lights.

Why waste the coinage?

If you really want to just drop a few dimes for no benefit to you, could you please send me the money to pave my driveway in permeable pavement?

That is why I was asking, if they dont actually change the amount of air moved or the effectiveness of a healthy cooling system (aka one without warped blades) then I'll buy another bottle of scotch instead.

I would do it for cheap insurance and piece of mind since you'll have the entire rad off anyway.

Ryan, my 750 is an '00 with a single rad. I replaced the radiator fan with a Muzzy one (the lower fan is a different size on the single rad versions so I couldn't replace that.) I have noticed an improvement in the speed at which the temp decreases when the fans come on when stopped but it's still a mildly warm Spring here so I don't know how much better it'd be in Summer. I also fitted a Design Corse water pump though so that will be having some positive effect. But I've just traded it in on an '11, so I'll never truly know!

The Dalmore 18 is quite good.

It's cheap insurance Ryan, well worth doing. They do seem to move air a bit better than standard, but in no way do they do anything to actually improve cooling.

You don't have to remove your radiators to install the fans mate.

Thanks. I'll probably just go ahead and do it. I pull the rads because I like to give them a once over and cleaning throughout. Also fill the lower off the bike so I can get 100% of the air out.

If you want to move air, get some Ducati 1098 fans.
