I just installed the Oil Bud Oil Cooler. It does everthing it claims to do. I did a 100 mile ride in 80 degree plus temps and the oil never got above 195. Pull off into city traffic and the temp only went to 210. On the highway with the stock cooler my temp would have been at least 230 and in the city 250 plus. Back on the highway the temp went right back down to 195. I'm very happy with the Oil Bud. Easy to install also.

Good to hear.. I have one in a box waiting to be installed very soon. I agree its a pretty steep price. But i like the design of it. And how it doesn't need a fan. Nice guy to deal with also.

I looked at those this weekend on the net. Didn't like that you had to pry it out of the way to get the drain plug out. And was wondering how well it would work the summer when it's 90 degrees out. Being that it's on the bottom of the bike, the heat coming off the highway. And didn't like the price. Please give a review later this summer.

You do not have to pry it away from the pan to get the oil plug out. Don't have any idea why you would think it has be pryed away from the pan. Being under the bike it has superior air flow, which makes it much more effective then oil coolers mounted in the standard position.

I have also been told the price will be going down by $50. Just have to wait and see?

Have had one in use for the last 4 year's. First on my 117" and now my 124". It does a good job of cooling the oil.

One of the nice things with this oil cooler, you can drain the used oil out of it

I also like the design, but the price is way too high. He can sell a whole lot more if he would significantly reduce the price.

about the prying

I also went to the website and the video showed him prying the thing away from the drain plug. Also I live in Bakersfield, CA and it gets over 100 deg. here. I would like to know how it does in that temp.

Have you noticed if your rear part of the cooler, where the return line is, hangs lower than the frame? Theres no mount to hold it there and have a zip tie on it now.
