Has anyone had their engine fins diamond cut? I am thinking about getting this done.
You suck Wayne, that is cheating. LOL.My fins were easy to do, dont know what all the fuss is about.
+1 I have to agree that's cheating. I'll forget about the cheating if you come out and help me do mine.:cheers:You suck Wayne, that is cheating. LOL.
The cuts increase surface area and in theory cool better.Never heard of it being done. Wont cutting the engine fins reduce their ability to cool the engine somehow?
Years ago a friend bought a bike that had it done, it looked very good up close but 10' away you couldn't even see it. I have no clue what the cost would be, but I'd say if that's what you want go for it...Has anyone had their engine fins diamond cut? I am thinking about getting this done.
I agree.Actually, being that our bikes are liquid cooled, it won't make one bit of difference....
The only reason Honda put the fins on hte engine is so it will LOOK like a HD engine. Liquid cooled doesn't need fins. If you take them off the engine looks very strange in a motorcycle.Actually, being that our bikes are liquid cooled, it won't make one bit of difference....
Ocean - I only painted the Upper Fins. They come right off with a few bolts. Here is a thread on how to do it. THe Pictures suck in the thread and dont give it justice. I also like just liked painting the Uppers (I polished all the fins) as it gives a good contrast in the engine for my Taste.Hey Chief, went to look at your gallery to see what the heads look like....damn....everyone should take a minute and check that gallery out!!! Oh, the heads really look great too. To paint the engine like that, I guess it has to come out of the bike? That's not something I could do....not if I ever wanted to actually ride the bike again anyway.
makes sense to me.....Actually, being that our bikes are liquid cooled, it won't make one bit of difference....
