THUNDERCAT RADIATOR.

Post  yorkshireracer on Tue Apr 03 2012, 20:32

Hi all,
I'm just starting to build a special based around a Thundercat motor in a Suzuki GS750 frame. I'm just in process of starting to source parts and I need a radiator/fan assembly.
Is there bits off any other Yam model that will be suitable just to increase my chances of finding anything suitable? Bearing in mind New Zealand is a total backwater for wreckers and I dont fancy cost of importing something.
Alternatively, can I fit more or less anything so long as radiator capacity is right?

I'd be tempted to fit anything from a similar sized or larger bike.
Capacity is probably only half the issue, the other half (I suspect) would be flow.

In England the Cats don't get hot anyway, so any 600cc plus rad should do the job.

Cool, that helps. Temp here is much same as Blighty. Bike is going to be naked as well so would I get away without fan? Even if I have to go to a slightly larger radiator.

The fan does kick in in traffic and around city centres, so I'd probably fit one.
