I have a 2008 Zx14 and it always seems to run hot in the summer. Today was 86 degrees and because it was city driving it ran right up to the top temp bar. Anyone else get this? Did you do anything about it. Ideas for a correction
It's normal. 14 doesn't like to sit still
Some have added a Muzzy fan to increase air flow and some have added a 2nd fan like in the 14R
As long as you're not flashing the high temp indicator you're good to go
These are the approximate temps for the bars
1st Bar = 100-140 degrees
2nd Bar = 140-160 degrees
3rd Bar = 160-180 degrees
4th Bar = 180-210 degrees
5th Bar = 210-230 degrees
I use Prestone Radiator flush. Some people say water wetter or engine ice works.
Also It may be time to check your thermostat to see if it is malfuctioning. Some people remove entirely although that is not recommened.
Start by flushing the system, make sure the fan is spinning freely etc.
EDIT; EZ knows best on this model and beat me to the punch
Im wondering how hard it would be to adapt the ZZR1200 dual fan assembly to fit the ZX14. The ZZR1200 radiator with fans is pretty much an ez-squeezy bolt on for the ZX11, and even though the fans r smaller, two of them push more air then 1 larger fan, plus they r immensely quieter.
