Improve my Cooling

Hey guys, I have a 2006 r1 and im looking to improve my cooling system somehow. Im moving from New Mexico to Phoenix and the temp there is high. Not only for the heat but I also want to build my engine and this cooling system would help with that. I've looked for fans, pumps, and radiators but all I found were OEM parts. Can anyone help me what to do and find solutions?

Works 2.0 Bar Radiator Cap. This radiator cap is designed to keep your engine from overheating by maintaining a higher pressure inside the cooling system thus increasing the boiling point of your coolant.

Bikes are designed to run in the desert without overheating unless they are running way too lean. A compression bump or even a decent turbo setup won't boil it as long its tight and right. Even tracking days in boiling heat shouldn't do it... you'll boil your brakes first.

I bought a secondary radiator for mine, was looking to get a oversized radiator but couldn’t find one that fit all of my needs. So I picked up a second radiator that mounts below the first one. 550/600 bucks. I bought the RTM IMOLA secondary rad for the 04/06 R1.
Here’s a link to the thread during my journey for a cooler running 04/06 R1

@taman86

y-pipe on older R1 models, pre 2015. exhaust is 4 into 2 into 1 (mid-pipe cat delete or y-pipe) into 2 Exhaust (cans)

on the newer models its just a mid-pipe as its a 4 into 2 into one, cat + (single) exhaust.. de-cat(alytic) *link-pipe IS the mid-pipe.

now, the catalytic converter gets stupid hot; thats pretty much a direct result of its job.
toss that puppy, replace with a *link-pipe*, add carbon fiber can(s) and tune that beast. gone is the heat

Under tail exhaust just does that. Itís common.

I second the secondary radiator. I had one on my 09 R1 and was impressed with how well it worked.

Whoody whoody woo!

So with the engine ice, are you running it as an additive? What ratio to coolant?

No it's premixed and it's very important to flush out as much old coolant as possible.

Drain the coolant and run engine ice only.

as others posted, its a hot bike.. pun intended.

pipes are running right under the seat to the dual undertail exhaust..

i'm not sure where all the heat is coming from

i run engine ice as well.. just by itself, no need to mix with anything else. ready to go in the bottle
