Finished my v-mount setup, used the cheap xs power with my koyo radiator.
Very pleased with the results so far, 28 degrees motorway driving, and around town in traffic highest so far is 38 degrees, but summer will tell me more if i need extra ducting.
Still on twins running about 320bhp.
Lead me not into temptation, I can find it myself...
But i can always do with some help now due to, my advancing years!

Nice shiny engine bay!
 Someone suggested having triangle shapes on the bar section of those intercoolers, to deflect the air flow through

Looks great mate, very clean. I have one of these to fit but not got round to it, do you have any more pics?

I had exactly the same as the OP - was a great setup - worked really well road and track on trwins :cool:

However, you NEED to duct it - without ducting, it\'ll be working at a fraction of it\'s actual capability.

What kind of ducting did you have!?

Both sides of the intercooler are sealead with alloy, ducting air straight from the nosecone, but i do have more options for further ducting.
