    One problem with installing a oil cooler on your bike is what do you do when its to cold. I insalled a Jagg Manual By-Pass Valve allowing me to by-pass the cooler for cold weather riding or faster warm ups on cool days. Simple turn of the nob.

    For some of us like myself who use our bikes hard, yes a oil cooler sure won't hurt anything.

    If you do not think you need one you probably do not. I have seen measured temps 90 degees higher in the bikes I rode with that did not have a cooler.

    I probably do need one. In the summer here it is usually 95-105 for three months.

    It not only cools the oil but my bike holds another 1/2qt of oil. I can tell the difference when I need to use the cooler with the fan on and it dose not smell as hot.

    I'm curious as to how you did the tap in for the oil lines-I think I've seen it 2 ways. Nice touch on the switched fan.

    Was lucky enough to go on a ride today with a Friend. My guess was an ambient temp of 63 degrees. Nice day to ride. Long slow climb at 11mph and before I reached the top, the Vector oil temp indicator light went on (243 degrees). This was with my home made cooler. Upon turning on the fan, temp dropped to 235 within a few minutes. These little engines run very warm/hot during slow off-road climbs. Suspect if you change your oil frequently, this will never be a deal breaker. For me, modding is as much fun as ridding. Gerry



    Take care my Friend.........

    Mr Giz how do you like the Vector oil temp indicator. I know you have used others and can you show what Vector you used and the sending unit install? I found this for $87.00 Trail Tech Vector Computer Kit (CHT temp sensor on oil line belt) 85-402 from Amazon. Looking for some help.





    Thanks Ronnydog
