Hey Cash Dawg,Check out some of the other threads on here regarding the water pump & impeller upgrade. Everyone seems to be having positive results with a not so huge outlay. I havent done mine as yet. I Have ordered the kit but it hasnt arrived yet. A few of the other members have said it seems to be an easy install too.
I remember seeing the third fan mod on your bike. I'm starting to lean towards the third fan idea as I only have a problem when I'm sitting at a red light and I don't see the new water pump and impeller improving this in 30 to 40'C days.
Can you send me the details of what you did again or lead me to your thread on the site where you had the instructions and photos please?
I found a guy at work who builds hot rods who also happens to be an auto electrician......I'm not confident doing something like this on my baby and I'm not that mechanically minded. Yes I know, 'shame on me'.
Also, would it be of any use putting the bike on a dyno tuner or putting a power commander in it?
I hope you can help,
Hmm we are both in Queensland. Whats a bet it was the same dealer. If you decide to get the impeller let me know. The instalation if really quite easy and I definitely wouldn't pay someone to do it.I too have been told by a dealer that engine ice isn't that good, but all the people on this forum can't be wrong. The workshop that are doing my bike now said they have seen good things with a nulon product, so I told em to put it in and see how it goes. I also wanted the H.O. water pump fitted while the coolant is out but there was nil stock locally. See how we go, I may fit it later.
I am going to wait and see how my bike goes when i get it back and if required i will fit the new water pump. It looks simple, i was just hoping to get it fitted while they had the coolant out so i didn't have to drop the coolant. Is your dealer one of the Brissy shops or a little further north?Hmm we are both in Queensland. Whats a bet it was the same dealer. If you decide to get the impeller let me know.
