How often should the radiator kick in on hot days?

Re: Zzr600 oil cooler issue

Generally banjo joints seal with a copper washer, pretty sure you'll be able to find one of the standard "industrial" ones suitable - check with an hydraulics place?

Re: Zzr600 oil cooler issue

In my experience of this issue is that the leaking was caused by hairline fractures of the ally nut on the oil cooler. Barely visible but expanded under load causing leakage. I think the standard washers were ally rather than copper. Hopefully it's just the washers but in the end I had to get a replacement oil cooler. The other problem I had was that the flexible hose rubbed together and eventually wore through causing a not inconsiderable amount of smoke and oil consumption.
