“WHEN THE TEMPERATURE SOARS THIS SUMMER, THINK LOVE JUGS” – HEAVY DUTY MAGAZINE
Highly respected Australian Magazine, Heavy Duty, is currently writing its third article praising LOVE JUGS.
In this, their 2nd article, the evaluator does a few independent heat tests and verifies our own results in a typically
understated “I consider these to be fairly impressive numbers…”
LOVE JUGS IDLE TEST
DOC PUTS THE HEAT ON HIS LOVE JUGS …
In issue 136 I reported on the fitting of the Love Jugs cooling fan system. However, at the time of writing we had not experienced any really hot weather to perform a test that would have some real meaning. So when a bout of hot weather arrived I performed the following test.
When the temperature rose that afternoon to 36.5C degrees I parked Ugly Betty (fitted with Love Jugs) in the driveway next to wife Jane’s Switchback (no Love Jugs) and started both bikes. Leaving them both idling, with an accurate hand held Milwaukee Laser Temp Gun Thermometer I took several readings on the top fin adjacent to the rear spark plug. This was done at intervals of 10 minutes, during which time the temperature of the day remained constant.
I consider these to be fairly impressive numbers and to validate some of the claims the manufacturer makes on the Love Jugs website. HD
