    Actually I've been running a 6 row cooler no problem, but I ran dual coolers before. The dual coolers kept the oil below 200F most all the time and if you're not running afr monitoring it may mask a lean/hot condition as I had a piston failure with oil temps under 200.

    this is a very good point. it does need to be in operating temp as mentioned above. old six cylinder cars (and i mean old, i own 2) would see excessive cylinder and valve guide wear if the cars ran too cold due to the oil being to 'thick' flow enough. my ducati also has a 'cold oil' warning on the tach for this very reason. fox also make s agood point: oil temp usually does NOT indicate a piston failure is coming, egt is the best way to monitor that, but since we dont run that we can guesstimate by oil temp/afr if you have a gauge.

    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

    yep got my third oil cooler also, this one will be used for DIY frame mounting design. I took all the frame around the oil cooler off and I noticed a difference in the wt savings so now I'm trying to figure out a way to mount it like that. I did notice those fins are pretty delicate and bend EZ.

    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.

    The one i linked two in the second link has a plastic shroud that goes around the whole cooler that would prevent sticks n bigger rocks from hitting the fins. it works well.
