Yes it can be upgraded.
In fact MV Agusta offered a Twin Rad upgrade in 2001 for the early F4's.
It is not only a second Cooler and two hoses.
The System was a box full of hundreds of parts.
And the dealership which did mine spend many hours to install it.
It costed also quite some money in the Region of 3000USD.
I doubt that this kit is still available from MV Agusta SpA.
But if You could source the stuff from a wrecked F4 You could safe thousands.

the best "cooling" is to reduce radiant "heating" ex header wrap and gold reflectant on everything, thats going to keep everything cool when there isn't air rushing around all the parts keeping things from heat soaking

Many threads about hot running F4s with many different "cures". Do a little searching and you can learn much. Bear in mind....all modern sport bikes run hot. Unless you get to flashing numbers and coolant spewing out you are not damaging anything in the engine.

The F4 was never intended to sit in city traffic...unfortunately, that is a fact of life for most of us when we ride.

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

You Guys don't know anything about what he is talking about.
The first F4 750, Oro and S (99-00), had only the upper Radiator.
Cooling water was gushing out of these by only standing 30 seconds at a traffic light.
It was that bad, that MV Agusta SpA upgraded the 2001 F4S with the Twin Radiator.
The setup You Guys know and were especially 312R and 312RR customers complained the most in later Years.
MV Agusta SpA gave this Twin Radiator Kit in 2001/2002 to Customers of the First Edition for a much reduced Price and free Installation.
Look into the F4 Oro, S, S1+1 Parts Catalogue and You will find the Twin Radiator Setup.
Printing out the Pages of the Single Radiator and Twin Radiator Setup will show You all the Difference.
And the Kit is an impressive improvement on the first Edition F4S.

Yes, you are right....I thought almost all had gotten the twin radiator kit as there were not so many of the first year sold and only 300 OROs of course.

I would think there are some parted out bikes that the twin radiators could be salvaged from.....That would be the first thing to do.

I really struggled locating radiators at a decent price - Europe tended to have a few more parts...but hell they were expensive, good luck
