Cooling

Has anyone purchased and installed the "love jugs" cooling system or installed the fan forced oil cooler? I have been investigating both systems and hope to get insight form anyone with experience.

Don't know about the fans you mentioned but check out wardspartswerks.com best fans on the market IMO and he also has a cooler running thermostat for the stock oil coolers. I've been running his stuff for 3 years now and love it. Several others on here run them as well.

I have the Ultra Cool reefer oil cooler and Wards Parts Werks fans, happy with both. I went with Wards over Love jugs because they are smaller and compliment the engine, not to mention Jason is a great guy and I followed his project from day one. I got a really good deal on the Ultra Cool because I had one of their original units.

I have wards fans and I can highly recommend them!!! I sit in tons of traffic and the bike would constantly overheat and just run like crap, after the fans were installed I don't think I have ever gone into EITMS mode and the bike can sit in traffic with barely any effects, maybe a slight detonation here and there but before it sounded like it was going to explode!!!!

I saw the love jugs on a bike the other day and they were just too big for my liking

There is absolutely no need for a fan to cool the cylinders unless you are in stop and go city traffic all the time. All the cylinder fan does is blow extremely hot air on your right leg, you would be better off putting in a oil cooler fan.
Also either one of the fans are no good after the bike is rolling 15 mph.

A buddy of mine put Love Jugs on his Ultra and loves them.

He is a fellow Shriner and does a lot of parading on his bike. He said it makes a world of difference for him during parades on the hot days.

They don't look bad at all in my opinion, but they are a little large.

I hate to disagree with you, but I actually have tracked the temps on my bike with the power vision. The fans work great in stop and go traffic which we get a lot of in my neck of the woods but they also drop the temp close to 20 degrees in slow running conditions like a lazy ride, true they don't do much once you are on the highway, but that is never an issue. My bike was perpetually in EITMS mode and I had it shut down on me a few times and it would detonate like crazy in mild traffic all of those things are gone, if I sit in traffic I can watch the PV and see my temps going down 2 degrees at a time.

I was a huge skeptic of these and I proved myself wrong once I put them on.

From a physics standpoint, you proved the usefulness of the fan in your statement. That "extremely hot air" that is blowing on your right leg is the outcome of ambient air picking up the much hotter molecules on the cylinders and forcing them out the other side. The heat on your leg was once on your jugs. 😉
