No worries, I need all the help I can get lol.
Oh that's really smart! I might look into that. Just for time sake I might keep it the way it is now, and over the winter strengthen the mount like Murray said, and maybe implement the tapered plate idea.If you really want it to move air, make a plate mount that has some taper to it that will cover the whole radiator and attach the fan to that.
Is this another one of your "DAMHIK" insights?
Yeah I guess that makes sense. It has the small shroud on there but the bigger it is the more air it pulls in like you said. The only thing I need to keep in mind is the clearance but I think I might be able to come up with something.That is what the shroud on any mechanical fan is for, to help it pull more air at slower rpms.
If you made a similar arrangement for your Efan then it too will pull more air when it is running.
More air means cooler engine.
Well I am not ignorant enough that I will ignore the advice of those who know what they're doing, so the next thing I will do is redesign the mount.there was a post from a member about rubbing a hole thru his rad core less than 2 weeks ago using a sorry to say better looking mounting system
and no i didnt do it to a bike
but i did have a big block powered chevy truck i used to tow my scarab that i put a tranny cooler on
it had a fan that went on with these neat (i thought ) zip ties that went thru the cooler and the rad to hold everything together
till the hill past orillia on the way into bracebridge on the friday of a long weekend
I haven't mounted the exhaust yet, but if you look at the picture below you can see how the exhaust mounts through the engine guard.is it the picture's angle or you can't mount your exhaust?
I purchased just one roll from Dime City Cycles. The recommended overlap is about 1/8" (there is a line on the roll showing how much to overlap). I wrapped the first exhaust without cutting the roll just to make sure I had enough to wrap them both evenly, and by having a 1/2" overlap there was not enough material. So I took it off and wrapped it again using the 1/8" overlap all the way and it just barely fit. I used up every last bit of the roll. If you want to wrap anything more than just the headers you will need two rolls, or they sell a 50' roll as well which would give you enough to wrap it twice if you ever needed to. I was cheap so I just bought the cheapest one lolYou mentioned you purchased the 2" by 15' exhaust wrap. I was wondering how much you purchased? Did you have any extra?
