Water pump

So I don't want my bike to run at 114 degrees next year when filtering through town so want to spend some cash and hopefully cure the problem.

Everything is stock apart from the muzzy fan upgrade, so here is the question?

Will the MV race water pump from design corse fix the problem?

I also intend replacing the fairings and belly pan with theCF option this winter, will that help much more in addition to the pump replacement?

Cheers!

I just fitted the race water pump from designcorse, muzzy fans and semco hoses and they work great. Where I am, the air temp gets as high as 38 deg Celsius in the afternoon. I notice the running temp falls to mid-high 80 deg Celsius with the upgrades.. That's easily 5-10 deg Celsius lower. The temp when bike is stationary is not very different though.. So yes,go for it! The build quality of the water pump is also excellent.. Kudos to Al and designcorse.

I fitted a 2010 cooling system with a proper oil cooler ( all oe ) to my 2009 bike...and an upgraded pump oe

Bit of fiddling about ..You can't just bolt it straight on ...but not too difficult overall.

I found that the Design Corse pump and Muzzy blades helped the bike run cooler and cool down quicker when I was moving quickly much better, but it didn't help the bike maintain a lower temperature any better when still or in slow town riding. There's simply nowhere for the heat to go without it being forced out the fairings by forward speed. For that you'd likely need DC's alternative fairing panels with the extra cut-outs.

A less expensive upgrade would be the MV updated design impeller. Works well at cutting down heat. I would remove your original and check it first to see if you have the updated version first before spending money on the race water pump. If its the old design, just get the updated MV impeller.

I also have fiitted the Design Corse pump.It does not help temps riding around town,it does bring the temps down quicker when on the move though as mentioned.Have you considered fitting a fan over-ride switch.It is the best/cheapest mod I have done to control the bikes temps when in traffic.

So why does nobody go for the Spal fans? Surely their 4.5-6inch fans move double if not more air than the oe fan.

Enjoy the contrast then, of how young you still feel
