I got my F4S in the first week of 2000.
The very first F4 in eastern Germany.
They didn't even had a Owners Manual for me and claimed running in the first 500km with 5000Rpm.
The first trip of a longer distance was to the Lausitzring for the first and last German 500.
The one were Alessandro Zanardi lost his Legs.
On the way to the Track was a little Stop and Go for the Bikes.
My F4 spilled water out for the last 500 meters of Stop and Go.
Believe me I was all over the Moon once my Dealer told me in 2001 about the Twin Radiator Upgrade Kit.
Two weeks later the Kit was installed and no more puking Water since.

You don't need to go too crazy. I have a 2000 F4 750 and I live in Canberra, Australia. our temps range from -8ish C on a cold winters morning to 43ish C in January. It is regulary above 30 from November onwards. I can't imagine you guys experience those hot temps in the UK. I did the following things and they do enough to deal with my issues.

1. Install a manual fan switch. When you think you are going to stop at lights flick it on before you stop. This clears a chunk of hot air out from behind the fairing.

2. Install the Design Corse water pump. This moves alot more water around helping to drop the temps alot quicker than otherwise with the factory item.

3. Had Adam (Merc07) on here write a new EPROM for me. This had some other benefits, but I think it may have helped alittle with the temps.

The end result is in temps 15-25 degrees it is not uncommon to see the bike running around at 65-70 deg C. In traffic these things warm up alittle quick. Fortunately I don't have alot of traffic here, but iI can still survive a set of 6 traffic lights over 5kms without any over heating even at 30 degrees.

If you wish to go all out you can install the aftermarket ECU, but I feel that is over kill.

The Design Corse water pump won’t help you at idle,only at revs.As mentioned fit a manual fan switch.

Hi Mitchy, I agree, but what it does do is aid the bike cooling down under load between traffic lights. This gets me in front of the inevitable temperature creep.

Yes Glenno,I fitted the Design Corse pump first,then the switch.The pump does bring down temps much quicker than the original pump without doubt,but if you are stuck in traffic the furnace will rage.lol
