Ok. who's up for a contest? PIMP your R+R.
1. heat sink (shape, how is it attached and etc)
2. fan (lots of choices here) Mine would be solar lol
Mine would have VN750 logo on it.

|HotRodPro||just a cumputer cpu fan on the r&r works for me|

Thanks....Lancer, Hyper and Shameless.
Yeah, those perspectives did in fact clear things up for me.
I appreciate the help.
Being clueless is a scary place.
I'm glad to be back outta there............

|lancer19||The fins on a heatsink (or radiator in hyper's example) creates more surface area. With an increased surface area you allow more air to pass across it and dissipate more heat. That's why there are already fins built into the R/R. Adding more fins creates more surface area. Kind of like the heatsink on your processor.|

|rckmtn||Go to the elecronic store and pick up some dielectric grease. It bridges any noncontact areas and transfers heat. Never used it on a weather exposed area and would be curious how it worked. before washing out. A lot of high power heat sinked transisters use this in addition to a heatsink.|

Would it work without the heatshink. Yeah sure. But the heatshink will help it last longer, besides it looks kinda cool.
