    Is there a difference in cooling between a 2013 Factory and a 2018 RF?

    I Notice a big difference in power when it's cool outside, the difference between my 2013 factory and newer more powerfull bikes is ok. When it's hot the difference is huge! The other bikes just blast by

    Is your thermostat already bypassed?
    Aprilia corse recommends a bypass for track and racebikes to improve cooling ,see link

    Also what do you run for adition on your coolingwater , waterwetter or anything else?

    Fuchs Silkolene Pro CCA Ultra PRO CCA is what I use in the goodold mille for years now ,maybe worth a try?

    Yes, I use the "extra" superstock radiator you pictured in the first post. In Southern California, we race in temperatures of 100 degrees plus on many weekends. It is necessary if you are a National caliber rider or you are capable of podium at your club race.
