Fan assisted oil cooler

I couldn't find much on this topic. I'm looking to see if anyone has installed this on their own and if it's worth it. Of course HD wants about 2 hours for install. I have lowers installed along with the 21 inch wheel so I'm wondering with the added area these take up if it would be worth the investment.

I had a Ultracool on my 12 and It didn't take up much more space.... And I did have lowers on it... If I remember correctly it was around 5 bills...

On my 2008 I had a jagg 10 row fan assisted oil cooler and pretty much never went over 245 degrees.
Just had an Ultracool 2.0 with Twin Fans on it installed a couple weeks ago, fans kick on around 200 degrees & oil temps run between 230 - 240 consistently. This is on my 2009 FLTRSE3 with a 110 motor.

Well worth it, especially if you have done anything to the motor. I installed the ultracool reefer on mine. With a 124" it's a necessary thing.

Pags63 - When you installed the fan is there a power connector already in that area for the fan? I was at dealer today and they gave me a price of $550 installed so I want to install it myself and was wondering if the power connector is already in that area.

The dealer wanted $200 to install the fan assisted oil cooler. You can do it yourself in about thirty minutes. First I went to the dealer and had them activate it in the ECM. (Literally took two minutes, charged me $45 nearly $60 with tax. They are losing a customer) while there I bought a qt of oil. My bike is new so I didnít replace the hoses. That eliminates the need to remove the exhaust. First remove the plastic cover there are two pins that press threw grommets at the bottom and two slots that hook at the top. (Didnít even have to remove the Lower Fairings)then I cut the clamps loose very carefully with a dremal cutting wheel. Cut the center of the raised crimp and it pops loose stretch and remove. Second I used channel locks and a rag to work the hoses loose. You will loose almost half a qt of oil. Third I used a offset ratcheting screwdriver with a T27 screw tip to remove the mounting screws thereís only about 1-1/8 of clearance on the break side. Fourth with the hoses loose and screws out there is a T that secures the top of the cooler. Lift up wiggle a little til the T finds the slot and it will come off. Fifth plug in the electrical connecter for the fan in the mating plug that is in the center of the frame already on the bike at the bottom of where the cooler sits. Then clip the T in the slot replace the T27 mounting screws connect the hoses. Replace the trim cover. Replace the 1/2 (+-) qt of oil and your done.

What year bike is this youíre referring to? I see an OG Roadie in your avatar but that doesnít sound like instructions for that bike.
Did you buy an ultracool reefer at Boardtracker?
