    Hello guys

    Ive an offroad racing buggy with an CBR600RR 08 model fitted, and it is reaching some hi water temps and, obviously, also hi oil temps.

    Im talking about 110C (230F) after a few laps at the circuit. Ive a massive aluminium radiator with a spal fan attached to a custom aluminium shroud, so, not much to do here.

    The engine as OEM oil cooler that uses water from the radiator to cool the oil temp, but that seems ineffective in my case.

    The solutions Ive found over the web are:

    a) A sandwich plate between the oil filter and the engine block, with tubes attached to a oil to air radiator.
    Engine oil cooler kit - Mocal cast aluminium sandwich plate with Speedflow red blue hose ends

    b) A oil cooler adaptor that substitutes the OEM oil cooler, with tubes attached to a oil to air radiator or a laminova oil to water radiator.
    Oil System (scroll down at the web page to see it)
    600 FTZ oil cooler

    As anyone tried/recommend any of this solutions or others? The a) solution is more cheaper and easy to find, but i dont know if it is ok to use it in bike engines, since its normally used in cars.

    I would appreciate your inputs about this subject.

    Thanks

    Aside from adding some ducting to create more air flow you could also try an electric water pump to increase coolant flow.

    Thanks for your fast replies.

    Gene, can you name an electric pump you think its suitable to this engine?

    Bullnerd, heres some pics of my current cooling setup:





    The radiator core is 53cm x 44cm. Due to the chassis design, it stays right at the back of the buggy, with minimal direct air flow.

    And what about the oil cooler, any sugestions?

    Hello saulo
    If you checkout the TALON thread in the projects in progress you will see what we have done with an auto oil to water cooler and plumbed it fro the genuine set up cant tell you how good it is or isnt because we havnt tested yet but i expect good results .I can tell you on our current zz1400 powered car we have plumed into the engine where the genuine water /oil cooler sits and have a remote mounted automotive air /oil cooler with fan ,this setup dramatically reduces temp .hope this helps

    I saw the electric pump in a thread here at MBN because a member's car was having overheating issues. I forgot which thread.

    Anyone?

    My 2 cents would be very few heating issues are problems with the pump itself. There is so many air bleds and such used on the bike engines that it is easy to screw up one and have a problem. Personal experiance. Its hard to really see anything from your pics but a couple things stand out. Something simple like the aluminum tube with the high bend coming from the bottom of the radiator is a perfect place to trap air. Your radiator looks to be large enought but air flow is not good. You all ready know that and without good airflow the radiator isnt going to do much. Also because your radiator isnt cooling as it needs to I would remove the stock oil cooler and use a external oil cooler. Above all get the radiator mounted so it sees more airflow and use ducting in front of it to trap the air.
