I just joined the Brotherhood of bikers this year..
From an automotive point of view, adding a Radiator (approx in the late 30\´s) almost doubled the life expectancy of an Auto Engine.
Performance, No. there usually is no increase in performance. BUT:
As an Engineer, being able to regulate *Control* the temperature of any Engine based the design requirements, will increase the life of an Engine. Cycle Engines see an even more dynamic in Temperature over its operating life time. A radiator may not be \´cool\´ per se because of the fan noise or performance, but your Engine will last far longer.. thus less maintenance, and of course, less $$..
Eventually out of necessity most bikes will have them above a specific CC.
