single radiator mod

ive read a few single radiator threads but my question is is i just take of the left side radiator and run the tubes to the other side would it be able to keep cool. maybe add another fan. anyone done this?
im needing the extra space on the left side and i wanna keep my fairings on.

I'm doing a naked build using an sv1000s radiator up front... it'll be big enough to cool..

Some people put one of the rad's under the seat but that requires a lot of custom Fab...

If you live in a hot climate I wouldn't recommend using one of the SH rad's because they are small...

What type of climate do you live in and do you sit in stopngo in 90+ degree weather?

Oh and there's also the rc51 dual front Rad setup

i live in va, it gets hot and cold here. im building this bike to drag and i figured in between passes it can have time to cool down. and i would do the front radiator mod but i would like to keep my upper fairings on. and the left side where the radiator sits would be a good place to run my charge pipe. also why a front radiator would not work for me, i have my turbo and pipes.

Well in that case make sure you get a bigger oil cooler... I'm going to be running a 4 row most likely off a trx for my setup.

As for coolant, I know there's a few guys here who have turboed their chickens but I can't give you anymore info on that.

Good luck

These bikes run real hot as it is. I cant imagine pushing the performance envelope and lowering its cooling capacity. Why roll that dice. I run 2 rads and an 8 row oil cooler and it still runs hot.

8 row? Very nice, you got pics? And what'd it come off of or is it a universal piece?
