Get the tassled chaps out & get some air around them, or fit another fan on the tank cover :dance:


I think Osteveo has a spare pair

Last time I checked, I only had one pair of balls.......admittedly unfeasibly large ones but still.... :D


Didn't smell any garlic & spices when I was stood next to you at Jacks dale Cafe so guess they hadn't been curried, but i did wonder if it was a pair of chaps you had in your rucksack for when you left us.

Jazzbutcher, Google " 12v DC UPS cooling fan ", click on "images" Plenty of choice there.You could mount it some where towards the back of the bike and pull the air through.There is a nice bit of space to the left of the rear shock. Which ever way it`s done be careful as the airflow will want to draw in the hot air from the rads. Think how the Britten motor was cooled and how he routed the air to the rad and the airbox. There are fairings available that have an intake on the leading edge, drawing in cold air and helping the ram air system to work.Sorry, must not mention Ram air System..... ;) Do as much as you can to block any radiant heat,
Every little thing you do will add up and help ! Even shaping the leading edge of the rear manifold heat shield to help cool the exhaust, again make sure the air has somewhere to go out.
Hope this provides some help. Good Luck. Alastair.


Hi al1125r,

Great idea with the heat shield, been looking at that, don't see any reason why I can't fit a scoop on the two heat shield screws as there's a nice big air space just behind there to pull air into to cool the rear exhaust headers. It will also be effective at directing the extra fan air instead of it blowing out of that gap. I've got some 3mm stainless plate, may take a bit of fabricating to get nice but at the moment I'll rig up something rough out of alloy to try & see if it works.
Looks like I'll definitely need to alter the undertray to let hot air out.
Busy applying gold fibre tape to the insides of the frame struts at the moment, really glad it's not seen when everything is back on heh heh.
Thanks again for the ideas.
A great help & much appreciated.
All the best Paul.

Ok folks, so far so good, still waiting on the fan to arrive.

Also the air scoop, not sure this is the finished item but it will do for now.
Osteveo, this is the paint I was telling you about, cooked for 1 hour at 160. It's still on my tailpipe after a year.

Better without the edging, shame about the holes. Mk 1 I guess as looking at it, I could join it to the underside of the right cowl & fit a heat sink on the alloy as well with the extra fitting point. You can just see a tiny bit of the gold foil, not as bad job methinks.

Sorry folks, No pretentions here, just wanted to cover the holes for the time being, at least until I can be bothered to make Mk 2.

Not bad.....that garage floor still needs cleaning though.

Bloody hell, what's up with you? I cleaned the garage floor before the pics.

:rotfl: :rotfl: ...cheers for the paint recommendation....I'll look to getting some of that for the spare exhaust I have.
I had a ride out yesterday after changing the oil and filter ( slight overkill given the mileage since the last change but I see 40 quid annually as a small price to pay) and the CR is as sweet as a nut. I can't help thinking that maybe any hot running issues you might have experienced will now not be apparent seeing as the ambient temperature has dropped......... but carry on ! ( Mine also drops a little fuel from the breather once parked in the garage after a spirited run due to the heat)

Hi Steve,
Yeah oil & filter change, always worth while even with low mileage.
That little bit of petrol on the garage floor also happens when you're running.
Still waiting for that bloody fan to arrive so I can get it fitted Pah!
Glad you had a nice ride, I had a look at the venue you went to on Google maps, looked ok.
You still up for a ride to Santa Pod?
All the best Paul.

Minerals? I'm not so sure I've got hem either but gonna give it a go just to see how the 1125r goes on a flat strip with no rises or falls to worry about. I've been trying standing starts & runs flat out to top speed in fourth, probably won't get any further than that anyway. Can't stop the front wheel coming up if it goes over a rise, makes my sphincter twitch a fair bit but haven't shat myself yet. :yup: Maybe on the day as that's going to be no holds barred whatever. I'll take some spare pants for the ride home anyway just in case heh heh. :ill:
Do you want to meet there, or meet up before on Route?
