Nice, I think all V4's where ahead of there time when they came out.
If I had to pick my favorite it would be the 86 VF750F. Those where fast bike and they where gear to gear drive cams instead of the chain drives.
Also had the brown case lighter motors with the race half cut frames that Bubba Shoebert won with.
My second pick would be the 83 V65 Magna.

But we really are off topic here ...sorry.

Any of you cool oil guys ever play with any of this industrial finned tubing I had seen some in the past that had fins inside and outside.

That's the type of stuff I was referring to earlier. Replace the return tube with something like this for added cooling.

These sections would be more like an oil cooler but there is the smaller bendy stuff.

I missed your post, I cant keep up here.

That's cool; I can't either. Yes, small and bendy enough. That would be cool, pardon the pun. Possibly easier to install than mounting a cooler and fewer plumbing issues, no additional connections...

I finally got some work done on my fork swap. They don't make the bike run cooler, but the sure make it look that way. The forks are 46mm KYB off of a Yamaha WR400.

Sorry to continue the threadjack, but I too loved the V4 - especially the '83 V45 (original Interceptor) and the later 1000. And yes, I was at Seca when Bubba cleaned house on one.

All I have now is the dipstick thermometer and with the weather warming up I want to really start monitoring.

Thanks!
My kit came with a washer that reads the temp. The washer goes on the oil line on the right back side of the motor

All I have is the dipstick thermometer. I'm going off of what others said about temps based on their dipstick thermometers. 300 degrees leaves some wiggle room for slightly higher temps at other locations. Since installing my dipstick thermometer I haven't seen a temp higher than 205, but that was beginning of Fall, so I'll probably see higher temps this summer.

Correct. I don't think you want it running down to your drain plug.

Were I to venture a guess... when out on the edge... I'd guess that the temp. most critical to monitor would be the cylinder head temp. - at/near the base of the plug.

Cool. They're so smooth and zippy. I'm hoping to take mine out next week. Every time I roll the throttle back it amazes me, especially when I decide to let the RPMs keep climbing! Some 'maggot coined the phrase "rocket-assisted freight train" and we all feel it. BTW, your Magna looked sharp!
