Is it like the KTM RFS and all in one place, or like the newer motors and in separate transmission and crankcase volumes?

* The one, large radiator - easy to put a fan kit on? Does it tend to run hot in slow technical stuff, or does that radiator do a good job?

Battery - Is there a common upgrade similar to the KTM RFS, like swapping the Yuasa YTZ7S or YTX5L-BS battery in place of the weaker YTX4LBS. (and is there room for a bigger battery). Important if running a fan...

The rad has holes in it for a fan. Seems to run cooler than my 525 ever did. Just like the RFS bikes in the oil dept. I just upgraded to one of those new style lightweight lithium batteries.
Just say'IN
