    Oil Cooler for TW-How Much Does it Help?

    I have read through the the threads on the oil cooler available here for the TW. It looks good and I am real close to making a move but I have yet to see any real factual info or data about how well it actually works. How much cooling does it provide and how much difference does that make in engine performance or longevity? Does the TW actually benefit from the installation of an oil cooler and are there any facts to back that up?

    I just put mine on about a month ago. After riding a while and then stopping at a light, I put my hand on it. Very hot. It has got to help. I know there was a lot of thought and engineering put in to it. You can tell just by studying it like I did before I installed it.

    If it does absolutely nothing, it makes me feel better. And it looks awesome!

    I need to get mine installed, I have been riding in temps close to 110F with some grueling hill climbs. Wonder what my oil temps are??

    hello,
    the tw has enough oil pressure to go into the radiator and get back into the engine?

    My biggest concern with the oil cooler is it likely won't help much at low speed high RPMs without moving air to cool the aluminum fins. But this does make me consider a fan to go with it. I should read more on Gerry's mods on what is now Fred's Gizmo.

    A fan will definitely help. Just getting the oil out of the engine into something NOT generating heat is the biggest thing.
