Just out of curiosity, What type problems would I run into using just 1 radiator.(Possibly one the size that's on the TLS as opposed to the large lower one on the TLR. Would it jeoperdize cooling and overall running temp of the Tiller?
You mean eliminating the oiler cooler? I wouldn't do it. It's there for a good reason. Suzuki wouldn't have kept using that separate oil cooler on their liquid cooled bikes for over a decade without good reason. Especially in this current age of weight reduction at almost any cost. That system would have long been removed to save those precious pounds of weight by now.
i have a tlr engine in my tls with just the tls rad.
it sits at 82C on the open road and 84C on the track but it does heat up fast once i get into traffic because the oil heats the water faster than the water can lose it
I guess it really depends.. over here it's a hot day when it's 25-30 degrees celcius. Even then warming up the engine takes a good 15 min riding. Some people already got rid of their second radiator (on R and S'ses). Can't see the problem if you ain't constantly trashing the thing!
