On the Dakar 950 race bikes these badass machines are based on there was an oil cooler behind there.

I believe the ECU is behind that screen on the 990's.

Yes, oil cooler. Bigger than what is needed.

That one was off one of my car projects in the garage. Tried it just to see size vs cooling capacity for our bikes. Don't need that big of one and it's for a car. Bike coolers are designed stronger. The oil pump on bikes pulse stronger. Cost ya a fortune to get it to Aussie land. Find one off of an XR400 maybe? Plumbing is easy. Right to the stock tank.



Line from engine goes to thermostat then to cooler. Out of cooler back thru therm then in to tank.

Fits great up under the glove box. You have to cut the bracket off that held the ECU though.

Everyone so far is completely off the mark. The screen is there to slice the fuck out of your hand when you try to reach something up behind there.

Newer models have some foam to reduce cutting so they have tried to remove that "feature".
