Hi you wont be able to tell how fast your going when Mr Kawasaki gets up to full chat! Its a strange feeling sometimes by the rev,s - 10,000rpm in top feels like 160 mph, but depending on the diff you may not see 120mph! A polite word i too had a Scamp with a Honda CBR1100RRXX motor, it had a few changes of rad the best i found was a alloy mk2 Golf 1.6 one,(cheapish £55) but you will need a fan. Best for air flow was straight upright with a 13 row oil cooler 1/4 inch in front. Whilst i know its own rad does a great job in the bike it may struggle with the extra loading of the Scamp chassis. Air flowed around the engine as mine was in the front, yours is couped up behind you. Was it carb,d or injection, A dynojet kit helps.(Carbs) Ttfn 4x4 Rob.
