Joe;So fellas, is a super radiator like Febur better in cooling for the bike ( road ) than a single radiator and dedicated oil cooler ?
I know that it's not the question you're asking but I can confirm that a Febur radiator / Microtec combination on a 312R is significantly better than a standard setup. I have no opinion on the oil cooling system that you mention.So fellas, is a super radiator like Febur better in cooling for the bike ( road ) than a single radiator and dedicated oil cooler ?
Are you sure about that :naughty:.Something nobody ever thinks about is keeping the oil temps cool and at a steady temp. A stand alone cooler can do wonders for controlling heat soak and fast rising temps.

Just haven't figured out how to mount a cooler up in the F4 as the italians are not much on efficient design(i.e. headers sticking out at odd angles taking up way to much room under the panels and sitting way to close to the radiator) so getting something fitted under the bodywork might be a bit of a headache, if not impossible.

For a fairly stock Agusta its probably not worth the expense for most. I mention using them because the motors i have on my bikes require them. Although i don't see any issue with using such an aftermarket unit if one has the coin because Febur makes terrific products.
Its good to know that you folks have been able to find a fairly economical solution to the cooling system deficiencies. Have you guys tested this stuff out on lots of traffic/city (stop and go) riding? The double pass is going to help a lot but curious as to the capacity in longer heat soak situational riding.
If its good without the lower rad. for city riding then that seems to be good news all around. A little plus for the rest of the Febur oil cooler units i have. When i had my agusta's together couldn't figure out how to fit a unit under the panels that didn't look like a jerry rig. These would fit nicely up under the upper radiator though.
Going to pull an old upper rad back out and see about fitment. Do you know if the bottoms of the pre'10 and post'10 rads are about the same length(end tank to end tank)
