Hi there, am a new member so be gentle! Has anyone used a large oil cooler instead of radiator on their bike? I have 750wp and removed fairing, and think an oil cooler would look loads better, cheers, russ.

Hello, welcome to the club. I have done most things in my time but not used an oil cooler instead of a rad.
Would need some work for the hose stubs i think.

Hi, thanks for welcome and input, I would be able I think to fabricate a method of fitting my water hoses to a cooler. I was concerned that it wouldn't flow water with good enough effect as, even though I could get hold of a large cooler, it still wouldn't be as big of an area as a rad! Cheers, russ.

I see your point. Both rads are designed for different fluids and as oil is thicker than water plus oil is pumped at a higher pressure than the coolant you may open up a can of worms come summer time.
