Water Cooling

Technology / Motorcycle / Water Cooling: Also known as "liquid cooling," this system includes a radiator and fluid to dissipate heat. Liquid is constantly circulated between the radiator and motorcycle engine cylinders when the engine is operating. A small fan (controlled by a thermostat) has a cooling effect on the liquid passing through the radiator. Water-cooled bikes are less likely to overheat, compared to air cooled engines, especially when traffic may be slow or jammed, which minimizes the heat transfer of rapid air circulation that air cooling provides.
