I was trying to retain use of the underseat area but there is no other place to put the radiator. The good thing is that it will be even stealthier.
    Came off the motorway at Te Atatu Rd today and went to the front of the queue at the lights beside a loud Harley with ape hangers. Did my usual "smart" getaway and got to the lights at Covil Ave before the Harley. Rinse and repeat as they say up to the lights by the Caltex. Same again up to the left turn at the lights by countdown. This time on the green light the Harley was off making a huge racket. Boy, he showed me.
    The guy that did the lambretta powered by a 350LC put the rad in the legsheilds.
    much like this

    if it had a front basket it could go in there......
    Much like the first YZ80 LC

    The leg shields have barely enough room to run a 5/8 heater hose. Talking to the certification guy the requirement for something up front is all curves to deflect a pedestrian. It would have been difficult to make and probably ended up ugly.
    I have the scooter stripped down and have more or less worked out where everything is going. The trick is allowing for engine movement with rear suspension travel. The hoses have to be able to move without putting strain on anything or getting jammed. I'll have a look at a warning light on the front to let me know when the fan is running.

    I've been able to make a bit of progress. The radiator is going to be fitted in the rear of the underseat compartment. The perforated plate is going to attach to small brackets to be installed onto the enclosure walls. The RG50 radiator is attached to that using the standard mounting points. On the other side of the radiator is another plate attached to what used to be the mounts for the plastic shroud and the fan is mounted on that. I will cut a couple of 50mm(?) holes in the back of the underseat to let the air out. It's going to be pretty tidy with only a bit of black rubber hose visible on the left side which I doubt most people will even notice.

    So why the big plate blocking off 30% of the area?

    Big fan I assume?
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    The big plate is simply a way of mounting the radiator. If needed there is a FZR250 fan mounted on the smaller plate on the other side of the radiator.

    It is now fully legal with WOF, rego, and LVVTA certification. I replaced the fan with a 120mm fan which moves 124CFM and the temp is well under control. I had to fully enclose the air path through the radiator and fan to the vent holes in the back of the storage area to stop hot air simply recirculating under the seat. I'll have to take it for a few rides on the motorway to be sure but the temperature is under control when thrashing around the suburbs.
