Hi,i have just bought a f4rr 2011 and i keep hearing problems of overheating!.Is this on earlier models or all models.If so what do i need regarding water pump ,modifications etc ? please help.
2010 + F4s have a proper oil cooler and the coolant radiator is stronger and has a denser cooling matrix so it is more efficient. They also have an upgraded water pump ..
However of interest..there is no temperature readout on 2010 F4s ...and as the old saying goes.." what the eye doesn't see the heart doesn't grieve over" !
No it will not, in short. There are other options for the pre-Y10 bikes.Will the 2010 or later water pump fit on the earlier F4 1000's?
The Moto Corse or MV Corse pump is the same rear housing, just an updated impellar and a re-machined impellar cover. The Design Corse pump is an completely different housing and impellar.The pump from moto corse is well designed and an exact fit. I am sure it's going to take some retrofitting to fit 2010+ model water pump.
Nelly, how hot is your overheating ? What I mean is that sport bikes get hot, overheating is though.....bike running so hot that the ECU switches the bike off, is this happening?My f4rr 2012 does get hot in a very quick time,ie 5 mins round town !.Would i benefir from fitting aluminimum muzzy fans or does the 2012 already have aluminimum fans ? Please advise.
My 2013 has a "gauge", it's just a series of bars that darken as it gets hotter. there is no "real" temp readout.I read 2010 MV F41000 doesn't have a temp read out? If so TRAIL TECH makes a small 1x2 inch LCD water temp gauge that easily installs with inline sensor.
Cost is roughly 25-30$
