I've got Cameron's book on motorcycle performance in my "pannier of holding', gimme a sec, lemme find it.....he says more compression = more heat, in general. He recommends larger radiators on water cooled bikes to overcome that more heat so that you can run more compression. The BMW, with it's singled sided swingarm, is already defying all laws of physics. Perhaps they don't apply on our bikes.
