Would that be as simple as adding some kind of oil filter adapter spacer thing that has an inlet an outlet? Then figuring out how to bracket on the oil cooler? Not sure, but I assume it would have to go somewhere that sees oil pressure. An pretty sure that's where a sportbike has it hooked up.
Well... Technically it has a oil spinner which Acts as a filter. The oil is pumped through the spinner (kinda like a flywheel connected to the crank), and when the engine is spinning, the heavy particles (anything, dirt, metal) are removed by centrifugal force, it's separated from the oil. So in order to clean the spinner, you have to remove the clutch cover, remove a cover, clean out all the gunk, and then reinstall everything with new gaskets. The interval to clean the spinner is much longer than just an oil change, I'm pretty sure I even saw it in the PDF manual
Very interesting thread. Thanks for the info. So what about bumper to bumper traffic? If I will be doin this type of riding should I get a cooler? Even though little airflow wouldn't do much, but would that still be better than none at all? Maybe a least a temp gauge so I know when to look for an open road to get some airflow to cool it down?
Even bumper to bumper should be 0 problem. Low rpms mean low heat. Though I would suggest a oil temp/dipstick combo just to keep an eye on things in general. In stock form, these bikes should have no problem going anywhere/doing anything. The only time you should run into issues would be when you get up in the 180cc+ category. Then yes for sure, do the cooler. You can always partially block a cooler to adjust the temps
HA!! I was looking for that same write up by Fatcaaat, that man knows his stuff.
I have an oil cooler on my CT70 build and it really helps. I could tell a big change after installation when stopped at a light, my legs didn't feel like they were going to catch fire. Just having the added oil capacity helps the most, regardless how well the radiator dissipates the heat.
They are really easy to install and I'm sure someone will make a bracket to hang it somewhere if you don't want to fab one yourself.
I'm converting my grom into a retro naked bike. :)
I got a Monkey gas tank and need to figure out a way to mount in onto the Grom frame. The two are not anywhere close to compatible so I'm not sure if I'll be able to do it. The Grom fuel pump is on the top of the tank while the Monkey pump...
Therefore, it is best to consult a professional trainer, Strength training speeds up the body's metabolism, lowers blood sugar and translates into a slender, more muscular figure, but from the weight loss point of view, the basis should primarily be aerobic exercise, i.e. running, cycling...
So I did a wheelie, and you know what happened next. Sadly I broke the rear set and flywheel cover, BUT as I was draining the oil, I tightened the bolt a little too much and cracked a piece of the engine.Do you guys think the engine is done for? Or can I somehow repair it? Will get a picture of...
I looking at upgrading the front forks and wondering how the feel is on the two. I have had racetech springs and dampeners rod on my last grom. They were good but hated the click I would get on compression. Does the ohlins click also?
