Interesting...looks like they're trying to improve cooling by adding little heat exchangers? Based on the area where there located with the amount of engine heat and airflow by them would you get much of an improvement in overall water temp?

Hmmm. Well I guess this opens a can of worms. According to some, the Duc does not have a cooling issue. They make aftermarket "street" radiators, aux fans for the upper rad, countless threads have been posted about coolant to lower temps and some of us have changed the dynamics of the lower fan operation and now this. Sure seems like a lot of "stuff" for a bike that does not have a heat issue. Newsflash. For anyone living in luxury (temps above 60 in the winter) the bike has a heating problem. Ducati knows it and I have heard it directly from the mouth of the director of DNA. This product as Flobrandx is a heat exchange unit made from aluminum. The small unit cannot be more than 3 inches high so lets not even consider that as relevant. The second piece, might do something but I call BS on the install. That stock hose runs under the electronic holder. To use that piece you need to hack the lower half off your electronic holder and its going to be an iffy fit regardless. Heat sinks work but I don't see the surface area here doing much if anything. $360.00? I don't think so. The absolute death nail in this deal is you will not get to use your $650.00 carbon fiber pipes (at least not the upper and side piece) if you get this kit and I know everyone is getting those.

My bad. Let me clarify. If you actually have a "winter wardrobe" then you may be exempt from this group. If however your coat closet has surfboards and beach chairs in it instead of coats, the motor runs a bit toasty.

Little advantage to be had, I would imagine, in such an enclosed space with severely impeded airflow. Not a lover of having to butcher the LH electrical box either, which also means you lose the ability to fit the battery cover and possibly the stock mid fairing, if the slots are cut off the electrical box as well, as part of the 'upgrade'. As Endodoc states, about as useful as the Sprint CF tubes and priced almost as unrealistically.

I guess it's more bling than function. Nobody with a minimum of knowlege on thermodynamics (like me) would ever use aluminium that isn't black anodized (Kirchhoff's law of thermal radiation).

Looks like a good way to melt your fairings if these do anything. As always, whatever heat these things remove from the coolant has to go somewhere.

i'm no engine builder/nor do i have a mechanical engineering degree....but isn't the engine designed to run best (no fuel air changes after it warms up) after it reaches 175F degrees...then its runs best right up to where the fans turn on (219?)....if you're riding the bike, with good air flow, there should be no real big deal about heat...

...traffic...?...wherever you think you want to go thru traffic, one good suggestion would be to "Take The Bus" instead of your 1199/1299
