Hi guys..
well its known that the ta650 temp gauge dosent move much unless it is real hot..well I`ve been running mine without the infill panels that cover the fairing indicators etc..

As it still cool outside 4c I`m very supprised to report that the tem gauge now regularly goes upto a quarter on motorways at 65mph..when will infill panels it would be running with no movement at all...

So the infill pannels must direct a lot of air into the rads...I did notice cold knees from the air flow..

this is just a observation that some may find usefull....I wouldnt like to run it abroad in summer without those infill panels...

But saying that the ta700 runs hotter so maybe we now know why..lack of airflow through radiators..


Also at 55k the speedo gear spacer washers had worn enough to require packing out as the gear was not engaging as it should..no wear to the plastic spigot or the gear below the speedo cable..just the drive washer beind the dust seal.

Very interesting, but maybe running without the infills somehow diverts ALL the air away from the rads, as I've run without the fairing at all and didn't notice any change in the temp.

cheers Wheelibin..

My front end will be modified next winter...so good to know it wont effect water temp...Only reason I was running no infill panels is the tabs needed some repairs and the fittiing of electrical stuff higher under the top...man I hate those stupid pushpins..always braking off..

I never had an issue with the Transrat in a mix of riding conditions, I did convert it to a temp light rather than gauge but it never came on in my ownership.
