As it stands, I'm currently on-road only... And due to an old accident and NO plastics availability, I'm running without side panels.

Messing around the other day and wanting to run on a patch of grass adjacent to the road, I snapped it at the wrong time and ran right into a rut. I held my line and almost saved it but the slicks gave way...

Laid it right over on the radiator side and wedged it case-first into a tree...

Picked it up, bowed to the audience... And rode off.

All bikes don't have to be dual radiator. My guess is my 11:1 compression is enough for the one rad + fan . But 12 and higher, and yes I can see increased chances of a boil over or rad puncture especially if there's two... Don't CRFr's have NO fan?

They can make the bike we want, it just doesn't show in the sales figures...

And it'd be a damn site easier and cheaper to build yerself.
