Sometimes we need a little more cooling on our air-cooled
ATVs. Heat is one of the biggest killers of Horsepower and
Power has come up with a helpful solution for this problem.
They formed aluminum fins that attach to your cooling fins on
your cylinder to create a larger cooling area to disperse heat
in a more efficient manner.
Cool-power offered us a chance to
test the new cooling fins. First we ran our test unit for 30
minutes at Little Sahara state park in Waynoka, Ok. (Sand will
overheat a motor quickly) to insure the motor was running hot.
We checked the
engine temperature without the Cool-power fins
The cylinder temp was
running at 239 degrees and oil temp was at 137.4 degrees. The
outside air temperature was at 74 degrees. Not a really hot
day but still enough to over heat an air-cooled motor.
installed 30 Cool Power fins on our TRX300ex to give them a
try. The kit comes with 30 cool-power fins and a tube of
silicone adhesive. Installation only takes about 15 minutes.
Before installing Cool Power Clamp On cooling fins, make sure
the engine cooling fins are clean and dry. To install Cool
Power Clamp On cooling fins, apply a small bead of adhesive on
the clamp on cooling fin where it will contact the existing
fin. After contacting the existing fin, push the clamp on
cooling fin an additional 1/4 inch or slightly more onto it.
Once the fin is in place, allow 24 hours for a full strength
bond to develop before riding. We suggest first clamping the
clamp on fins in place without the adhesive to get a good idea
of where they will fit and look best.
Next we took our test unit out
on the same trail and ran it the same 30 minutes as before.
The temperature out on the dunes was now at 85 degrees up 11
degrees from the day before. After our 30-minute ride was
completed, we took the
results were as follows, on an 11 degrees hotter day, our
cylinder temperature was down to 230 degrees and oil
temperature was down to 133.6 degrees. Not bad for a 11 degree
hotter day which figures out to a 20 degree temperature drop
on our cylinder and 15 degrees cooler oil temperature. Any
product that can help cure heat related wear and horsepower
loss is a valuable addition to any air-cooled motored ATV or
Motorcycle. The cost of the Cool Power Clamp on fins are,
$39.95 for 30 cooling fins and enough silicone to install
them. A small price to pay for the extra cooling your engine
