1st attempt at cooler running vented fairings

Pic of my F4 at bike week with the side panels I modified to help the heat issue. Had some issues with the repainting, stickers got ruined so were removed but they look pretty factory otherwise.

Didn't seem to have any issue in Ocean City. I have another set of sides I am going to do this too but make the vents work better for when air is flowing over them and maybe put some small ports in the leading edge to add cool air into the hot air stream coming through the radiator. The nice thing is they are factory panels so they fit perfect and are nice and stiff.

vented fairings

OK, second attempt at vented fairings. These are actually the same ones redone. I am debating putting mesh in them to match the other vents but I think it would restrict the air movement too much.

Great job....if it works as good as it looks..!!
Any difference at idle (traffic lights eg?). I'm sure the temp comes down quite quickly when on the move.
Well done. How about 'temporarily' putting in the mesh (clear silicone from the rear) and see the outcome.
If it does not have a 'detrimental' effect on the air flow then you can fix it in a more 'permanent' way...if you prefer it that way. You've done a great job there.

Thanks guys they were alot of work. I could have bought some but i dont like the way non OEM fairings fit. I put the mesh behind and its OK but looks just off, like its a model and not a real machine. I have not ridden it yet but the previous version worked well.
