DRZ revs and temp info required
« on: April 16, 2008, 08:56:27 pm »
Hi all
I ordered a Vapor in November and finally have it and have to set it.
What is the rev redline for the drz and what is the redline on the temp?
Thanks
Newguy

Revving the DRZ to 10 000 rpm is not needed, it makes most power around 8 to 9 thou. It revs really quick for a single thou. And 50 000 km on a stock piston and rings is not bad considering the revs you run.

Re: Redline on temp: Where is the temperature taken (water head, top or bottom of radiator?)
Is the cooling system open or pressurized?

Lecap most likely on the left side radiator hose. This radiator also has a thermostat. The left rad warms up before the right one.

Probably the best to experiment for a good temp redline setting:
Let the bike idle until the radiator fan starts up & switches off again. Ideally early afternoon on a hot day.
Set the temp. redline a little bit highet than the highest reading you had during the test. Let's say two or three degrees.
Ride like a bat out of hell and see if you get a "false positive" = overheat indicated without the bike cooking off. Usualy the bike stays cooler if you ride the bike compared to idling unless you do very hectic technical low gear low speed high revs stuff.

If your experiment does not get you any readings near 100°C: Wait until the better half / master of the galley is on shore leave. Pour your preferred colligative agent in its final dilution into a cooking pot and place it on the stove. Alternatively use your camping pot and Cadac stove and hide in the garage. Measure the temperature of the engine coolant as soon as it boils. Program your redline a few degrees lower.

Its a E model, there is no fan on the radiator. Sensor is screwed into the top of the left radiator.

Has anyone ever had overheating problems with an "E" - not having a temp guage has always worried me slightly especially when the going slow off-road in summer.
