Also looking at the small radiator I don't know how he can fit 600cc in there.
Maybe the capacity is included in the lines? Joe would be the one to ask about compatibility with the LC4; I had assumed it was not terribly different in this regard.

Here is a link (on this site) to someone who did it.

I asked for info but I misplaced the reply. Just a matter of fabing some longer hoses IIRC.

Question Oil Cooler Upgrade Anyone?

I'm going to atempt to revive this thread in case anyone has made progress. I just sold my 950 Adventure to pay some bills, and bought a well farlked 625 SXC (bored to 672). I like the idea of keeping my oil cool, and plenty of it.

Has anyone added a oil reservoir or cooler to their SXC?

My first thumper, can't wait to have some fun

not an SXC

I don't think the bike in the pic is an SXC unless it is a highly modified one to emulate a 640 Adventure. Good news for you the Adventure already has a larger oil capacity and probably won't need the oil cooler unless you are planning some serious off road.

Good luck with the new bike!

HERE is an updated link. He says 800cc of additional oil storage and extra cooling. That is more than the frame holds (600cc).
That link didn't work - but they have two kits now

and the new one

I was looking at installing something like this (sized according to what will fit). http://www.jegs.com/webapp/wcs/store...erm=oil+cooler or one of their power steering coolers. I need to just figure a few things out but it doesnt seem like it would be too tough. And it would sure beat $400.

in case y'all didn't search the index for "oil cooler", here is another thread on these:
http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=74910

You might want to look at Jagg's motorcycle specific oil coolers:
http://www.jagg.com/jagg%20files/jag...s/jagghome.htm
rather than using a transmission fluid cooler or other small radiator.

Of course supporting Joe Racer is supporting small business...

It's a 625 SXC, bored to 672, with Adv 7 gallon tanks and body work.
It's basicaly a Adventure, but one area it falls short is Oil cooling/capacity. It's not a HUGE deal, but would be nice, oil is my friend .

I can't wait, she is going to be delivered Nov. 4th

I have something in the works

I have been planning this for some time now but I still have to put it together and put it through testing. My only issues are potentially limiting air flow to the radiator as this is no little oil cooler and will be placed in front of the radiator. This winter I should have the time to finish up the prototype although I probably will not be able to do testing until next summer.
Does anyone know where a guy can get an oil temp gauge for an LC4?

Sommer KTM sells (or used to sell) a replacement oil filler cap that was an analog thermometer. Always coveted one, so that I could correlate temp gauge (water temps) with actual oil temperatures, but... so many gadgets, so little money.

Hope they still have them

Thanks I'll have to see if I can find it online. The gas gauge is going to be a real trick! Uhoh German, no sprecenzi, oh yeah I can do Babelfish!
Chassis number!? I guess that's up by the triple out to the garage I go. Bank Code Number! Account Number!? wait a minute, I'd like to get the part but but geez!
Ich möchte eine Öltemperaturlehre für mein Motorrad kaufen. Würden Sie die Art haben, die die bestehende verlegte Stockart Ölüberprüfungslehre ersetzt? Wenn so, wie viel tun, sie kosten und wie ich zahlen Sie können? Danke
I really hope this doesn't mean I want someone to service my mother!

If I am not mistaken the above posted bike is indeed a well modded 625... I think it's the one Springs had for sale in the FM.

FWIW why not just change the oil on the 625 when it's time? What do you need more capacity for? It's more work to find/make an oil cooler than to just change the oil.

Well, the idea is if you keep the oil cooler, it incurs less thermal breakdown, and provides better lubrication for the engine - in addition to helping keep the engine cooler. You will need a thermostat triggered oil cooler to do that, or be ever vigilant and open/close the oil cooler circuit when your oil temp gauge tells you. Ever vigilant... because too cold is not good either.

At one point I got confused because my Redline oil reaches operating temperature at the same temp as the 03's temp gauge overheat light comes on... then I realized that is the water temp, which is not oil temp which doesn't even consider engine head temperatures. or EGT, or
