Oil Cooler/Fans!!!

Does the oil cooler w/fans really works & is it worth the purchase? I found two companies that sell similar setups, Jagg & Ultra Cool. Any input on these?

Q,
Check out Wards Parts Werks
Dude is WAY into cooling/heat management and has designed thermostats and forced air fans that cool directly where needed. I know that it's not directly what you were asking, but thought I'd throw something into the mix for you.

I plan on ordering both parts from this guy soon before the scorching Texas heat is in full effect

Good luck finding what you want!

Thx for the info. Do you have a set? If so, does the fan turn on automatically when a certain temperature is reached or is it manual?

I'm ordering first of the month, but done some research/reading and talked to Jason who owns the place. Fans cut on automatically when rear cylinder temp hits 250 or when you slow to 45 mph or under.
The low temp thermostats he sells just keep the oil from getting too hot before the cooler has to try and cool it down.
Interesting read on his theories and testing on his site if you have a few minutes

I have the Jagg 10 row with fan. I never really took any before/after temp readings, but at least I know the oil is hot whenever I hear the fan running.

In theory, Theory and Reality are the same. In reality, they are different.

I have 3 computer style cooling fans behind my oil cooler, not automatic though they are wired to my ACC switch and I turn it on/off.





can find them on ebay for like 70 bucks.

(not my bike in picture actually used the pic from a current ebay auction)

Oil Cooler/Fans!!!

Have used well over 10yrs ago, no fans though (thought they were all for metrics with rad), seems they'd just blow the heat around, air cooled motor, keep it the wind, they only get so hot. Seen on TV HD runs them in desert heat partialy enclosed. The surface area,passages and fins for oil to even out. 3-400$ can buy shade for you and yours own longevity.

I have the Wards fans and with these fans, 95 degrees stop and go traffic last summer and no ETIMS on my 09
And it used to cut off rear cyl in 80 degree stop and go before fans.
Oh and by the way I don't have an oil cooler at all on my bike at this time.
Also just to make another point of how little power they consume I left my fans on one time in the parking garage for 12 hours and I still had no trouble starting my bike after my work shift.
They definitely get my vote is the first thing to do for heat issues.
About the only negative thing that occurs is it it blows the heat through the cylinder heads and over on to your right thigh.
