Ultra cool reefer oil cooler

A couple questions for those that use the ultra cool reefer oil cooler. I don't currently have an oil cooler on now but I have an opportunity to get one at a fairly reasonable price but was wondering how those dual fans sound when they're running? Are they loud? Does this unit mount in the same location that the stock oil coolers do? And can you possibly post a pic or two of them mounted? Any other info you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Rob I have never heard my fan's running never really listened for them either. It does mount in stock location. Comes with braided lines. I noticed the temp being around 10 degrees cooler just do to the size of the fins and 17 row cooler compared to the OEM. hope this helps sorry no pics.

Rob, if you decide to go with it let us know how it is.
I've been considering one myself.
Thanks.

I'll try and take some pics tomorrow. I dont hear the fans at all, not mention they don't come on very often. My oil temps stay very low since installing mine last year. The only time the fans kick on is in really hot stop and go traffic.

I had the original Ultra cool, and upgraded to the Reefer a couple of years ago, (they made me a great offer). You don't hear the fans when the engine is running, the only way I know they're running is by the led indicator.

Thanks guys. I ordered one in black. The cheapest prices I could find was about $360 but with a conversations with a seller I was able to aquire a new unit in black for $300 even shipped to me. Considering the stock HD coolers are approximately that price I figured the ultra cool was the way to go. It's will be alil while before I'm able to install it but I will give you my opinions on it when I do.

Another question, how does it get wired up. Do I have to cut into a harness or just find a good power and ground source?

Power is from orange/white in headlight harness (spade connector) and ground.

It was delivered yesterday and I was able to start mounting it up this morning but had to stop so it's loosely in place on the bike. Upon frist sight I will say this thing is pretty beefy. The cooler itself, or heat exchanger as ultra cool calls it is also pretty heavy duty. The directs were accurate for the most part as I found it better to turn one of the lines around in order to route it in a what I think is a better route. It's not wired in yet as I'm not looking forward to removing the fairing again but the cooler is mocked up right now but I should be able to finish it tomorrow. Oh and with the fans on the front of it it does stick out alil more than a factory cooler does.
