Worried about oil being cooled down esp at a long ass stop light or heavy traffic and you never use your horn, replace the horn with a electric fan and when you are at a stop light during the summer time and your temps are getting up to 260 F just hit the horn button and let the fan air run over the head and fins. Cheap fix. Make sure you make a mounting bracket for the fan that pointing towards the critical area of the engine such as the head and fins.
Harley had a fix for that

Got mine....DEF great quality and all the parts too. Good buy
Price is right, main thing is getting the engine oil cooled down when on a long ride or WOT. Trick is getting cold or cool air flowing over the cooler even in stop and go traffic esp in States where there is no lane splitting and I think Calif is the only state with a lane splitting law.
[QUOTE=MSX UD ITA;302913]what do you think about this ?
and quote fails again.
Itd be fine, but one of those is really more meant to be used in a natural convection sort of way, like where its tucked up somewhere, and not in the direct flow of air. Not to say you cant use it in moving air, its just that a tube-fin style (think a normal car radiator) is much more efficient in moving air.
But at the same time, one like this is nice for offroading/etc as you don't have to worry about anything hitting the fragile fins, bending them, and reducing potential to cool.
That's a weird heat sink
