Thermae front-mount radiator kits

Hi all, I have some SP-1/2 front-mount rad kits available, $899 not including shipping.

The kits include upper and lower radiators, oil cooler, coolant link pipes, oil line-to-crankcase terminals and mounting hardware. They do not include the coolant hoses or oil lines themselves. The kit is track-oriented but can be used on the street - there's a threaded port to mount a fan thermo switch in the upper rad (I supply a CNC block-off bung in the kit if this is not required).

Message me if interested, thanks for looking,

Jimmy

I have a couple 90* Samco Sport hoses in blue that would work on this kit as well.

No v-cowl can be used with this setup right? Might not be the best street application (debris from road might damage the radiators right?). I totally want to do a front mount setup but maybe for my track bike only?

The v-cowl has to be either cut down or omitted so yes, the radiators are more susceptible to damage from stones etc. However I've been running mine on the street for years without issue, they ship with a stone guard safety-wired to the lower half of the lower rad. The front-mounts are far more efficient than the OEM side-mounts as long as there's air coming in through the cowl. There is room behind the lower rad for one or two SPAL 4" fans but if you're crawling in stop-and-go traffic on a hot day they will have no advantage over the stock side-mount system. Once moving however there's no comparison ...

The kit is brilliant on the track. The feedback I get from racers and track day users is all positive. I ran my own bike with a built motor on the track this week in 100F conditions, coolant temps stayed constant around 180F.

Got a set of the early SP2 front mounts, and they are very nice!!
Jimmy is a straight-up nice guy and a pleasure to work with.

Both Jimmy and Simon (at LBP) are great guys.

Man, I wish business was better I've wanted a set of these for quite some time.

Life ceases to have meaning if not in the pursuit of passion.

Jimmy is amazing to deal with. I have a set of KYA front mounts and the oil cooler was just stupid. He helped me with my 101 questions and hooked me up with his oil cooler and some odds and ends. Absolutely great to deal with!
