    Got an interesting question fellow doo'ers

    First off, I apologise in advance for not having proper links set up or pics to better explain and show my thought for my question beings im on my phone and it just came to me. But what would, if any, be the benefit of running the engine coolant through a radiator with an electric fan for our doo's? Either stock or modded.

    If you're simply trying to cool down the engine temp. then you should purchase an aftermarket thermostat, or convert to open loop. It's not worth it to try to come up with your own system IMO.

    That would make a great heat source for those who ride in the cold. Otherwise, like others have said, it would create too much heat in the engine compartment... Ron

    rideplate works well enough to cool most engines in most conditions to however cool you want to run. 158* 131*. i think whatever Tstat you install the rideplate is efficient enough to bring temps down to Tstat level.
    if the water is that warm and the air that warm that excess heat is an issue, an radiator wont do any good either.
    then best bet would be to go with an open loop cooling system that is already available also.
