Is it the XR 400 or XR250 that has one of the simple oil coolers wrapped around the headstock? Would that be a start to a solution?

I have a Honda 350X, it uses the XR 350 motor, there is a little oil cooler on that. My guess would be the 400 had the cooler.

Yes, the XR400 has a nice one.

I mounted one on my XR600 and it's a tidy unit, but I don't know that it would fit on an Adventure, and it probably wouldn''t get the same airflow, so I doubt it's application here.

So why does everyone shy away from thermostats? The thermostatic switch is internal, works off of oil temp, so they're plug-and-play,and stone relible. I've used them for decades in lots of different applications, never gave me a bit of trouble.

I know the Adv doesn't need them as much as the RSF, yet unabiker and I have been talking and he has created a set of rad-guards with an integrated oil cooler.
I don't think he has photos as of yet.
But it is an alternative for the RSFs.

Wouldn't that be a nice way to make the EXC

service intervalls?

I wonder why KTM did never offer an additional
oil cooler or even make it stock gear.

There was rumor that the HT-racing oil cooler was going to be made into a KTM Hardparts item but I haven't heard anything about that lately.

Not sure if it would work or not. I was cruising on the net and ran across this thread. I use the fans on my Harley custom and they work really well at keeping the temp down. I thought you guys might find the web site interesting. Yes, big fan of big sky country except for the winter time when the bike is hibernating.

So I've been looking to improve the oil change interval on my '04 SXC, every 1500 miles (or 3 good days) on a long road-trip is kinda ridiculous. I think that extra capacity would be more beneficial than running a cooler for this sort of thing- I've seen enough thread replies about the absolute horrors of running that poor oil too cool of a temperature. Anyway, has anyone looked at using an oil reservoir off a Polaris Magnum 400-500cc ATV? There's a bunch on eBay, and I would rather trust an established OEM part if I can get the fittings an plumbing to work, than those JC Whitney/Harley/Chinese oil reservoir things I keep seeing. Any thoughts or suggestions?
