Cooling System

The water cooling system is a pressurized forced circu-
lation type. When the engine load varies, this system con-
trols the engine temperature within narrow limits where the
engine operates most efficiently. In this way the engine
performs stably in various riding conditions, and possesses
high durability.
1. Water pump: driven by balancer shaft
2. Cylinder jacket
3. Cylinder head
4. Water temperature sensor
5. Bypass hole (Air bleeder hole)
6. Thermostat
When the engine is cold, the thermostat is closed so
that the coolant flow is restricted through the bypass
hole, causing the engine to warm up more quickly.
7. To reserve tank
8. Radiator cap
9. Radiator
10. Fan
11. Radiator fan switch
If the coolant or engine oil temperature goes up be-
yond the predetermined level, the radiator fan switch
conducts to operate the fan relay.
closes its contacts, completes the fan motor circuit,
and the cooling fan turns to speed up the cooling
action of the radiator. When the coolant or oil cools
down, the fan switch cuts the relay current, and the
fan stops. This electric cooling fan system saves
engine power.

glycol plus corrosion and rust inhibitor chemicals for
