Ural Oil Cooler Kit?

With so many people of late telling me (sometimes screaming) that transplanting a BMW engine into a new 2014 M70 Solo is stupid overkill for a Ural without the sidecar, I've been considering that perhaps I might keep the stock 750 engine after all, but maybe with the addition of an oil cooler.

Is there a proven kit for installing an oil cooler onto a 2014? Neither Googling or the search function on Soviet Steeds has provided me with a clear answer.

I considered installing this on my older ural but did not. Perhaps others will weigh in about its effectiveness and applicability to a 2014 model.

Try Raceway Ural. http://racewayservicesproductsandacc...com/index.html

Have you actually ever overheated it? The off highway fuel injection map makes it run cooler, and improves throttle response.

He doesn't even own one, so overheating it would be, let's say, difficult.

I'd probs be converting back to carbs. EFI faults in third-world countries suck.

Why don't actually ride, or buy, the bike before doing all these changes? How will you manage the rest of the electronics if you change to carbs?? If you only want something to tinker with why not buy used??

Complete electrical strip-down from stock. Totally new harness, including stock fuse box replaced with a solid state electronic breaker box from Motogadget.

Used? No. I want all the new upgrades Ural introduced in 2014. Except the EFI.

Are you certain? I would be taking this bike to fire roads for plenty of slow gravel riding, and mountain passes, too.

In hot conditions and slow movement nearly all air cooled engines will benefit from the addition of an oil cooler. Conversely in cold weather you would want a cover for the cooler or a bypass so the oil does not run at too low a temperature.

Why not buy a bike you actually want?

An Oil Cooler on a Ural is not very efficient. The Ural uses a splash oil system with very low oil pressure. After market Oil Coolers are available but a waist of money in my opinion. You would be better off with a deep sump that gives you more oil in the crankcase.
