j p ma,, USA Premier Member Daytona 955i (02CE, 03) 16 Mar 2012 16:28 This kit on ebay (for 675s) claims the bike will run almost 9 degrees cooler! I am wondering if the older 955is could benefit in the same way?

You'd have to explain to me how much difference those hoses can make though, I find it spurious. Or is it one of those "up to!" headlines, like where lots of sports exhaust makers say "gain up to 25hp!!!eleventy1!" and in fact that's because the exhaust on a bandit 1200 is horribly restrictive and in that case it's true, but on anything else you just get s!$% fuelling and maybe 3hp top end (2% on an R1 or something similar)

Might i suggest moving to antarctica???? your bike will certainly run cooler there and it might be cheaper than them hoses and associated shipping/import duties!!!
scratch the import ..... just noticed you live in the yoo ess of eh??
Spartan Andy South West, United Kingdom Posts: 72 Enthusiast 26 Mar 2012 21:42 Third It, I did a coolant flush and replaced the stock Triumph anti-freeze with Motul Motocool Expert, Also as mentioned above, I used Tuneecu to drop the fan temp down from 103c to 99c,
I have notice even with just the coolant change that my bike runs one bar cooler on a run and slow moving traffic,

Rodders Melbourne, Australia Posts: 66 Sprint ST (02-04) 28 Mar 2012 00:05 what's the blue lining ?
presumably that is the reason why it assists cooling. I can only imagine it has a greater ability to wick away heat from the water/coolant or that it has a slippery surface which helps the water/coolant flow better and reduces pajama blockages and restrictions

Spartan Andy South West, United Kingdom Posts: 72 Enthusiast 28 Mar 2012 20:59
Doubt if it was the antifreeze that cause the headgasket to blow, But possible a trapped air pocket, 1050's can be a sod to bleed, Took me longer to bleed the coolant system of air then time to replace the antifreeze,

Quote: 1050's can be a sod to bleed, Took me longer to bleed the coolant system of air then time to replace the antifreeze, I reckon this calls for an instruction of properly bleeding the.... bleeding coolant system

it certainly put our cat to sleep after i mixed 120ml of it into it's biscuits every day for a week Kidding!!!! before the cat protection league do a head gasket!!!!
DarrenRyan29 Tyne & Wear, United Kingdom Posts: 48 Daytona T595 16 Jul 2012 22:25 Hey guys, just reading through the above, I have recently fitted trail tech vapor clocks on my t595, also installed the temp sensor into the rad hose, obviously when I loosened the hose clip and pulled the pipe off I lost some water, on completion I filled the rad and header tank and the rear back up, let it idle for a bit and topped the rad back up, is this ok or is there a certain way to bleed the system?
j p ma,, USA Premier Member Daytona 955i (02CE, 03) 16 Jul 2012 22:55 These bikes can be a bitch to get the air out..
You might be lucky..proof is in Thr pudding.. If it Doesn't overheat or run hotter you are ok But I would use the bleeder and give the hoses A good squeeze: The bleeder is that small bolt by the filler neck Lots of post from frustrated tters trying to get rid if the air In the system..2nd or third post down http://www.triumphtorque.com/messageboar...
Nick Birley Edge, United Kingdom Premier Member Posts: 15,708 TT600 (00-01) 17 Jul 2012 14:21 There's a very good article on cooling here:
http://thundersportgb.com/downloads/cat_... It's the one entitled "Keeping Your Cool" It's really for racers, but it's very informative.

Samco hoses. Engine Ice coolant. Removed heat shield above radiator. Continuously stay above 30mph on 100 +deg. F = 82 deg. C indicated. Short version, if there is a difference, it is minimal.
BillR MidWest, USA Sprint ST (05->) 01 Sep 2012 12:07 That's because coolants like engine ice and Evans aren't as effective at removing heat as ethylene glycol/water and not even close to pure water or water/WaterWetter. They have a few other advantages such as higher boiling point but personally I think they're worse that just a waste of money, they're bad for performance.
William Kidd Southern Indiana, USA Posts: 158 Daytona 955i (04-06) 02 Sep 2012 06:06 Engine Ice is propylene glycol based so it is a little more animal friendly.
