You're in Florida right? I'd say get an aftermarket radiator. I'm in Arizona and the radiator stock radiator won't even keep the bike cool when it's over 90 degrees. Putting it in the Exo chassis will only make it worse.
Check this out guys, I am going turbocharged with mine, Pete sent me a email on radiators after I had asked him. He said this one will fit and its pretty cheap. "Mishimoto makes really good radiators. In taking a quick look at their website the model # KFX450R will fit and I would use one or two model # MMFAN-12 electric fans. Their may be other products out there that will be a little wider but 12” appears to be the maximum height for it to fit unless you lean it over with the top facing forward."
I am the Exobusa that lives in florida, dont have mine yet but production starts tomorrow and will hopefully have it in a couple months.
Personally I would keep the oil cooler as close to the engine as possible. The pump on the busa engine is very week and thats a long way for the oil to travel. Might work if you go with an aftermarket dry sump with a high volume pump. Ill be keeping my oil cooler in the rear but that is a good idea if you get the oil to flow good and keep the pressure up.
Guys, one thing I thought about was getting a custom Rad made with an integrated oil cooler. This would eliminate the one I always see in the back of the motor.
Hi mate, I would have to agree with Turbospanky here, thats a really long way to run the oil, even if you do run a dry sump. The oil coolers are so small and can be fitted into much tighter spaces which certainly means you should be able to keep it close the engine and pump hopefully.
With mine I am running a Pace dry sump system, but because I am running the wider floor I have been able to mount it outside of the frame, and I will be finishing it with some cowling to direct a little more air over it and finish the look a little better.
But, because I am not trying to register mine for road use I am not "encumbered" by nearly as many rules as you guys are.....
“Life is not a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well-preserved body. But rather, to skid in broadside, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming .... WOW what a ride.”
I picked this up and I am unsure if it would be sufficient enough for the car. My concern is that the inlet and outlets are a bit smaller than I thought they would be. It is 2.5" (6.5cm) thick though, so the thickness may be sufficient enough. Thoughts?
I did find a radiator that is similar to the Polo one you guys in Europe are using.
Dimensions are Overall Width (in): 17.000 in. (431.8 mm) Overall Height (in): 18.500 in. (470 mm) Overall Thickness (in): 3.000 in. (76 mm)
My issue is; how are you guys mounting a radiator this large? When I measure it looks like the bottom of the radiator will stick out the bottom of the nose cone by half a inch (12.7 mm) Are you leaning the radiator forward to not stick out the bottom?
