I need an oil cooler and nothing else fits or I don't like what available like a Jagg cooler so I designed my own. Any feedback?

Little bit of a redesign and this is nearly what it will look like on the bike. The drawings are more advanced than what's on the bike just now. I went with a 2mm fin @ 2mm spacing. I'll make a ~1mm gasket to fit between the body and the cap and will secure with M6x25 machine screws and I've put dowel slots into the cap to body holes. I'll use the standard valve cover dowels. The rear bracket will be M8x20mm into the threaded body mounting holes.

I'll use 3/8 NPTF to 3/8 barbed 45 to 3/8 transmission/oil line and into the oil return on the bike on the right side and I'll have to take it through where the R/R is and move that into the airbox I suppose.
