Obviously though, style and technique comes into it. Radiators don't do a great job of cooling without air passing over them. Like EZZA said.. keeping the bike running or under load while not moving is a good way to get the temps up. A decent cooling system and a well tuned engine shouldn't really need a fan to stop it boiling either, if the rider keeps moving.

My guess is that this brand has shaved what they can out of the rads.. slim design, low weight. Couple it up with some bikes running a bit too crisp and boiley boil!

Haven't lost a drop from my Gasser in 200 hours. Boiled WR300 once(haha with Jake) riding an overgrown hill in FNQ with 14:48 gearing so clutch punishing.
Gearing & jetting & not riding stupid(sitting there revving piss out of it on a hill) are the keys. I boil generally before the bike though. Never had a fan but both the old Husky motor & Gasser motor are over engineered in regards to cooling capacity/efficiency.

Seen a TM300 steaming like that, met him in the bush and he thought he was gunna smash us on his hard climb he led us to, he was the only one that boiled.

Assumptions are no good Gypsy!

But I'll throw in an assumption.. that a fan would be of little benefit to that bike in that situation!

Why not ?
Are you suggesting its the rider mainly?

Any bikes that come out riding with no fan end up like this in my time of riding.
