Thanks for posting that up - I've been googling around for an
appropriately (both thermally and physically) sized oil cooler for our
KL250's rather hot running little engines and so far everything I've
found have been sorta automotively clunky and large - Beet, Jeggs,
various a/t coolers etc....
That Setrag appears to be just about right. Pricing looks good, too.
Looking in to it.

Sorry for the hijack. That really is a trick set up and I like the way you incorperated the rock guard for the headlight. When you turn the bars to the stops there's no problem with the hoses binding?

Yeah, wasn't visible, so I took a fresh one.




Got it from JC Whitney and used stainless sink connectors sprayed black.

Nice work. Not to be critical, but it looks like you didn't push the hose on the fitting far enough. I don't know what the oil pressure is (40psi, 60psi, ?) but having that hose come off would not be a good thing! That push lock hose can be tough, best method for swivel elbows like that is to lock a male fitting in a vice, tighten the female elbow on, wear some gloves, and push like your life depends on it.

I have made a cooler for mine, ended up finding out that auto trans line is rated out to 255-260, as far as the pressure in those lines its not much at all, its all volume, maybe 2-3 psi if that, its not to say that if one of the lines got clogged that the psi would go up high.

Man don't take my word for it, go down to the auto parts store and talk to them about heat ranges on rubber hoses, the ones you are useing don't have a range because of there intended use.

Google a company named THE HOSE MAN. They should be able to replace you water line. They make custom hoses for sort of apps. Ben

Here is my JAGG oil coller set up. Has been on the bike now for 10 years with no issues.




Here is the hose routing.

Ray,
Your hottest temp since the oil cooler has been on the bike?
Also, I can't really see how it's mounted. looks like it attaches to the bike in only one place and then kinda stands up?

Oil cooler placement

I see two problems with mounting your oil cooler on the side of the frame, truck6driver. One is a crash on the left side. The other is the amount of air flow getting through the oil cooler. One advantage with your placement is the length of the hoses. So far my setup has had no problems. BTW, I saw that funny thread about the KLR. My bike weighs about 330 lbs. fully fueled, and will CRUSH a KLR in the dirt. Its also more reliable without all that doohickie crap. Just as good on the street, too.
