    Did they drop engine temperature over the stock ones?

    Only when going through slow technical stuff. I haven't had a boil over since I installed them.

    Hey Pat, here's a hint. I think everybody here already knows that you don't like me, maybe even hate. But I'm starting to wonder if you are kind of infatuated with me. I didn't realize you'd be thinking about me for so long. But by quoting me from six months ago, it really shows how much you care. But I have to be perfectly honest here....I'm not that relevant to the XR650R thread. No really, I'm not. As a matter of fact, I'm not relevant to other inmates here, either. So while you spend your emotional energy putting me on a pedestal and taking pot shots at me, the rest of the inmates here probably don't give a damn.

    So here's an idea, how about you color yourself on down to the basement and join the I Hate Cpt. Ron Club Call it therapy, and I won't even charge you for it. Best deal you'll get, IMHO.


    P.S. To put it back on topic (from 6-mos ago...), where are those stats on Ricky Stator versus Baja Design stator failures?

    All I see here is a latent jealousy of another man's penis size. With no facts that were requested more than once. But there is some awesome heresay.

    The real test for me is if I can smash one and still ride home. I have seen oem rads take a serious smushing and still not leak. I am skeptical that the heavier duty units will be as durable once smashed just because of the physics of it all, but there is only one way to find out.:D

    Come to find out, my cheap Chinese ones had one ride on them (Virginia City Grand Prix), and then it fell over in my trailer. The left radiator hit my other wheel chock, putting one hell of a dent in it. That was a year and a half ago, and I've been riding it like that ever since. No leaks, no overheating. I have a spare, just haven't made the time to put it on, and in light of how it's working, I'm not too motivated to do so, either.

    Sorry for feeeding the trolls, but;
    My RS stator, which was purchased in 2005, is still working. no issues. I could do some testing and see what the actual output is, but I don't care. Maybe it is still working because we have winter? Of course it is, even though I still ride in the winter, and I probably ride more off-road in three summer months than bump does in a year, maybe two. Almost a daily rider, and while not a racer, I ride mostly race course and get paid to do so some of the time.

    However, the heavy duty reg/rect that I got from RS does seem to be electrically dirty which creates issues, but I don't think RS is selling a Typanium product that is any different than the Tympanium products sold elsewhere.

    I still have yet to find a use for bajadesigns anything.

    I need a set, dual core instead of the OEM single - but I need to modify the RHS-one at the bottom to allow space for that humongous tank.
    Do's a fave and send me a pic of yours? Then I can see if I'll be able to rework them, specifically the bottom-cup of the rh-rad.

    I will do, but the problem is I only drop bikes on the left side. So my right side is still OEM. However, I can measure the thickness difference between the two, and any offset differences and hopefully that will give you an idea.

    I was worried about clearing the left header, but it seems to have even more clearance than before. The old rad was likely tweaked long before it was crushed.

    Captain Ron's other thread brought me here.

    I have a ricky stator stator on my xrr. Other than the rubber boot thing worked great for the 09 baja 1000 I raced it in and is still going today.

    That is all

    Hope this is the right place to ask since we are talking stators. Can I install my RS stator and wait on the other electronics for a short time or do I have to do it all at once, lights, battery, relay, etc. (I want to ride before dealing with it all and want to insure it works) Thanks, and I must say I have only had excellent dealings with RS and think Mike is doing great with Rich's legacy.

    I used a set of these radiators made here in Aussie.

    There 42mm thick compared to the stock 18mm units.

    Seeing this forum has tRONdled in the direction of penis-envy of late: Start to carry on the right side then you dickhead!
    :lol3


    Thanks, will appreciate - especially the offsets/diff's, the expression "a tight fit" has taken a whole new meaning for me fitting this behemoth.

    Kasuyaho, what brand are they - and also, pls post a pic of the bottom of the RHS as this is where I will have to modify mine?

    GungaG,
    I'd not do that, as the surplus of power will have to be sinked in your current regulator i.e it will become way too hot, I hunch it might fry. Better would be to wire-in the new (bigger) reg at the same time, then mod the rest later.

    Bump,
    Thank you for your post, as it has spurred Ron on to wire an awesome thread together, in doing so showing his true colours which, quite frankly, shine!

    Captain,
    Good man, and mine is bigger than yours anyway.
    Oh wait, that should be Crypto, the topples over as a result of it :wink:

    RS has two pair of green/white power output for 200w output total. Just wire in one pair for 100w power output and cap off the second pair. If your connections are clean and tight, then there should not be a heat problem.

    This. I used one leg of RS with stock reg. for several months. It is rated at 125w iirc.

    Nice dash setup, don't worry I still haven't figured out how to upload pics and that is like asking for directions on the road, I just can't.

    I put a set of those cheap Chinese radiators on my 2000 last year. The lower right hand outlet had to modified. The fitting was too short and was turned inward towards the engine too far. I had to cut the fitting, turn it about 20* and add 1/2" to the length for it too work. The mounting hole didn't line up quite right but they did work. But on a plus side, they are pretty well made and sturdy. For $120, you can't really go wrong with them. You can jack up 3 or 4 pairs of those rads for the price of a set of Fluidynes!
