Idle Speed Inspection
This motorcycle is designed for competition use
only. Therefore, the radiator does not incorporate
a coolant reserve tank or cooling fan. Prolonged
idling of the engine with no airflow through the
radiator can cause coolant loss and engine over-
heating resulting in possible engine damage. Any
riding conditions that increase engine temperature
will further reduce idling time before coolant loss
These conditions include high ambient
temperature, sandy or muddy terrain, or other con-
ditions causing high engine loads at low speeds.
Furthermore, warming the engine up excessively
before operation, or leaving idling with the hot
engine temperature after operation results in the
engine overheating, too.
