Cooling issue

Morning all
Iv finally picked up my new to me 1000s although I got rained on for a short period I did enjoy the 70 miles ride home.

Good points
Throttle response
EBS system
The sound
Handling

Not so good
A little cramped easy to sort
Although during normal riding the engine temp was showing 65 to 70 when I pulled up it soon went up showing a maximum of 105. So to get off on the right foot I'm going to replace the water pump and fan blades ASAP.
So were is the cheapest place to by the pump
Regards andy

Can you give us a bit more that "running hot"?
What is "running hot" to you?
Any mods?
Have you done any troubleshooting?
Have you read the service manual?
Under what conditions do you believe the bike to be running hot?

During normal riding on the open road it's showing 65/75 degrees which is fine only when I stop at lights does the temperature rise quite rapidly to about 105
It's not modified in any way so I through up grading the pump would be a good idea.
Thanks for the reply

Andy, these bike run about there.
Where are you in this world?
Using a quality coolant such as Engine Ice and going to the high flow pump does reduce things a bit.
Try the site sponsors, such as GP Racing or Design Corse.

The best way, and cheapest option imho is to fit a fan over ride switch to the bike.

I switch my fan on 'as soon as I slow to less than 40mph. This makes a massive difference to the airflow and stops the heat building up to a point where the bike struggles to deal with it.
Since fitting this I've had no real cooling issue and can merrily ride into the city.

Why bother fitting a switch when the ecu can be coded to switch the fans on earlier !

Can this be done with all ECU's?
Providing you can get to someone who can do this, or you have the know how that's fine. At what temp do you set it, 77c?

I like the idea of controlling the fan myself, turning it on be before it even starts to get hot keeps it ahead of the game from my experience. If I allow the bike to get to 80c before switching on the fan I have seen it struggle somewhat on hot days in traffic.

Some times I even run the fan for a while after I park up, to chase out excess heat, as I have had problems with paint and body work getting cooked. But I do admit this is my preference.

Do you know what ECU you have?

I can do the 16m's, still working on the 5sm......

He says it's a 1000S so it will be the 16m ecu - that said he also states:

Good points
Throttle response
EBS system
The sound
Handling

Guess it must be a standard bike !

97C is the standard setting, I set it to 91C. With the fueling and advance changes, it never gets too hot.
