  • Front protector/ornament may restrict cooling air for engine?

    Hello guys.
    I live in a very hot and humid region. Is it posible that this chrome cover instaled under the regulator may stop the air flow needed to cool the engine?
    So far I've had no problems with overheating that I'm aware of or can phisically sense. It was on the bike when I bought it and I've traveled through cold and very hot weather. Also helps to protect the lower front of all the parts beneath it.
    What do you guys think?

    I'm sure it restricts the flow some, how much I wouldn't know, but I would be more concerned with the reg cover....
    not all those who wander are lost......

      Flashback I have the same setup without the reg/rec cover but would think by adding the cover would increase the total surface area to dissipate heat off of it and may be a good thing. Just my thoughts on it. JC

      Hey Flashback ! I've never had tought of that. Thank you.
      Thank you Lug Nut .
      I guess it can stay that way until something fails. (Hope it doesn't) I'm more like a preventive maintenance guy. (I guess they are fixations that aviation left on me)

        You just need to check the coolant level in it ever so often
        You have to be odd if you are number one

          When I can't get Heineken I use any other coolant at hand. I hope it works the same.
