I’m in Texas, As long as these no ice, I’m working on riding all year round. However I’m having problems keeping the engine cool enough in the summer (suggestions please ) and hot enough in the winter, for example I had to ride home with the engine temp gauge reading 150f or 66c, I did not have a long ride, I made sure to keep the engine ticking over and do to over rev. Does anyone have the facts on actual engine temp vs the coolant sensor temp?
What are ideal operating temperatures or when will we be killing the rings?
Also, has anyone come up with a sensible radiator cover to limit cold airflow over the rad?
For the chaps north of the Mason Dixon, I’d just disconnect the battery, run it on a trickle charger every second week, and put the bike on the axle stand.
AWAY FOR THE WINTER... HA it must suck to be a yanke.... Na I almost feel bad for yall up there colder than a welldiggers sack and its just another gogious day here in south TEXAS. Well hey I have to ride to town good luck with (wintering) your bike.
My simpathy PILLAR :stickpoke
If you dont know if your a yanke then I ask you has it ever snowed where you live???
If you answer yes your a yanke :freezing:
It does snow in metro Atlanta occasionally. One or two inches every few years, with a half a dozen inches once a decade. That being said, don't ever call me a damn yankee..... We're still fighting the "War of Northern Agression" here.. just kidding to my frigid friends..
Get some NEW Stabil, put in the appropritate amount and run the bike to make sure that it gets all through the fuel system. Remove the battery, wax, and keep in a place that you can oogle it all winter!
Well at least that is what I am going to do on my 2006 910S (with 53 miles on it picked up the Saturday after Thanksgiving 2007!)
Hello Brutale People,
I have a lovely 2004 Brutale, early model and a dream to ride. Just got her up to 6k miles, tried to install an integrated tail light and messed up a bunch (I turned my head while my drunken buffoons of friends began to touch hot wires together). We ended up blowing a...
When I picked up my Dragster RR, I was lucky enough to go out on the new Brutale 1000RR.
I wasn't expecting it so I did not have my vlogging gear unfortunately.
Happy to answer any questions.
It is in the following Brutale vs Rush video.
Checked the mileage on the last trip. Filled the tank but didn't try to squeeze in every bit of gas I could. Gas light came on at 140 miles. This was mostly canyon riding. Brutale 750S Arrow mid pipe, Moto One chip. How does this compare?
