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...
It takes about 700 mL without a filter change, and right at 1 liter with filter change.

Appearently a Yuasa CTZ7S is a direct drop in with about 50% more CCA.
