I do - both - but I don't know if I'm too unsure of my abilities or just too damn lazy to carry thru on my Motochondriasis...

So I just piss, moan, and

Motochondriasis... dude, I like it! Let's see... have we sidetracked this thread enough yet to qualify it as an official LC4 "what the fuck did this thread start out as" thread? Or do we need to keep going?

I had to look at the title to remind myself where I was so the question is do we need to pile it on higher? Or deeper, depending on your perspective...

I'll try to post my "rough" hand drawn diagram.

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!
Try this http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tab%3DWatching. Althought this listing has ended I'll bet you could email their Ebay store and find another. Good luck

Say Tuff Tunica,

how do you regulate oil temps or have you found that unnecessary? thermostat? manual valve and an oil temp gauge? nada surf?

Maybe the system is not sooooo sensitive, kinda like a long-haul truck covering part of their radiator during the winter...

Tuff Tunica,

Well done, that's exactly what I'm looking for.

Can provide a parts list and source?



Hey Flux,
Yeah it's Springs bike.He's delivering the bike on his way to Baja, can't wait!

Sweet, I was eyeballing that bike for inspiration. I have my 625 in the Flea Market now but if it does not sell I think I'm gonna make it into some sort of rally bike.

Exactly what I did. 4860 front forks revalved, rear shock resprung and valved both by MX-Tech. 8" driving light and Nite-Rider HID running lights, 660 kit, rally cam, full Akrapovic exhaust, steering stabilizer, my own special oil cooler (adds about 300cc more capacity), Aqualine Safari 27 ltr tank, MRA wind screen, some tinkering with the carb and Voila- my own little rally bike. Now I don't ride rallye's but livin' out West there is alot of desert to be explored. I've also done multiple trips to Baja and absolutely love this bike. Oh also added a 320 front rotor for a little extra stopping power.

That's tiny!

Geez my oil cooler is going to be huge compared to that one. If all works out as planned it should mount in a little safer spot, I'm figuring almost a quart or 950 milliters or so capacity.

I don't really ride this bike much when it's cold so I haven't incorporated a temp regulator. I figure any additional cooling to be a benefit. It just flows through as part of the whole system. Probably the better benefit is the additional 300cc which is about a 25% volume increase and an additional filter.

Initially I was really concerned about the location. I don't really do too much technical riding with big logs or rocks. Most of my stuff is open desert. I always carry the original oil line in the event of a failure. It would be extremely easy to bypass this entire system and just re-install the original oil line.

Having said that, this sytem has survived multiple dings and hits with nothing more than a slight mal positioning of the cooler. Although I'm sure it would most likely not withstand the abuse of a Dakar type rally, for my purposes is has turned out quite well.

Hm, well oil has an operating temperature range; you obviously know what too hot means: thermal breakdown, but do you know what too cold means?

When an engine runs cold so does its lubricating oil, which means more potential for moisture and acid to form in its oil. At higher temps (both oil and engine) harmful deposits are boiled off. This prevents the slow destruction of bearing material and shortened engine life.

When an engine runs too cold, the fuel economy goes down, often way down. A decrease of 6 to 10 miles per gallon isn’t unusual and as fuel consumption increases so does wear. Wear increases because of two factors. First, the cold engine doesn’t heat the oil sufficiently and harmful deposits, moisture, and acid accumulate rapidly, then eat away at the inside of your engine. Thats why flaming exhausts are bad ideas, your literally pouring gas down your cylinder walls...Yea but its fun anyway...
