    I tried a rear mount, but it only works when my wife is drunk enough:banana::super::devil::thumbsup: Hey, it's New Years and I've been drinking. Wait, my wife's been drinking too. :banana:

    I kind of wonder why no one has adopted a rear radiator to move it away from the turbo. Worked for the Britten and the Benelli triples.

    They use them on grudge and prostreet bikes. They do nothing. In fact talking with Terry McIntosh and they found on a rear mounted radiator bike If you just looped the hoses and bypass the rear radiator it made absolutely no change in the running temp. That tells you how little flow there back there and that was with a fan running all the time.

    Done on a ZX14 back in 2012. Actually these pics are when he was going to do a twin turbo kit. The other turbo would be opposite side. This kit was changed up to a single and made over 300hp IIRC. He wrecked it one lonely cold night in Texas and almost died from it as he was not found until morning.
