We saw him getting up in the TV feed, but they didn't show what happened after!

A gentleman never tells. 😉

They both got hot on Saturday, so did a bunch of bikes. Madama lost a head gasket, Lillegard pulled off, Sam Wiest head gasket, as did others due overheating. Lots of wrenching Saturday, lol. I suppose due to heat and humidity. We took the radiator guards off & left them off, flushed them a couple times, cleaned the fins good and it was of course cooler with less humidity on race day. Shawn made a couple mistakes and effed himself up. He blew the kink and cost himself 5 seconds. Actually there were mistakes made by all of us on race day. Best qualifying positions, not so good race performance, meh.

I'm going to upgrade the radiators as we appear to be at that pace.

Damn - I see EDR is selling upgraded head studs now for the FZ, may be worth looking into? Are you still on the stockers?

Is there an off the shelf larger radiator for the FZ or do you need to make something fit?

We're on stock compression so I'm sticking with stock Yamaha bolts. I ordered a couple of true aluminum custom jobbies outta Asia. Thicker cores, same overall dimensions & not pot metal like stockers.

2 of these showed up today. Very nice looking kit that should help keep temps in check.

And, we had another vendor approach us and want to test a carbon fiber tank cover in a different shape/configuration. So we'll be testing that as well next weekend. Very similar to this,

Blue Line Racing field trip playing with #4 of only 10 Britten's ever made. Holy Grail of racing.

It was at Road America for the heritage cup and super stoked to see it beat on in its natural environment.
This one has a storied pedigree from Daytona to the I.O.M.

Are these specific to the FZ07 or generic that you'll get to fit? Where did you order them through?

They are built model specific. From eBay, I'll post a link if they function as advertised.
