Makes sense, particularly the distance between the pickup and return

For 2009 and later look at http://bakerdrivetrain.com/plus-1-5-oil-pan

However, what are the benefits over an oil cooler? I will soon install the Ultracool Reefer oil cooler

I'm thinking more about harley ' s pan. What I've read about the Baker you have to drop the rear wheel. I think the harley is a little cheaper. If I was doing more stop and go riding I would do the cooler. Most of my riding is weekend cruising.

Somewhere I heard people run the +1 oil pan a quart low, and supposedly the oil temp would be cooler because it's got an air gap to help cool it. I'm a bit skeptical though.

Between the two, I'd pick the cooler. It will also increase your oil capacity slightly, but is much more efficient at actually lowering oil temps.

When I first read your response I thought WTF kinda answer is this. But it made me do a little more researching and thinking. Found a couple more discussions on this topic. Then I got to thinking harley been making the air cooled engine for at least a couple years. Haven't heard of anybody having a motor seizing do to high oil temps.so I'll take my 500.00 and buy something else. Thanks.

There's a whole bunch of these so-called problems that get all blown out of proportion on forums and in magazines, yet when you get out on the road you'll find thousands of riders riding down the road perfectly happy and totally oblivious to the "problems" we're fretting over.
Got to pick your battles, and spend your money wisely.

The Twin Cam has been on the market for over 15 years now and hasn't needed it. Only reason the moco is offering it now is to compete with Baker.

2011 RGU with more money then sence in it.
Oh and its black because blacks faster.

After several mods including higher compression, bigger oil coolers and fans come in handy. It also depends on how and where you ride.
