Hello everyone. I hate to bother you fine people but I am having a bitch of a time trying to figure out how to eliminate my oil cooler on my 2006 GSX-R1000. If anyone could help I would appreciate it. Thanks!
that would be sweet! :nuts: lemme know how that works out for ya, lol.I was thinking about removing mine.
That's what the turbo kits I installed did for oil.that would be sweet! :nuts: lemme know how that works out for ya, lol.
the only reason i really see people take the oil cooler off is for turbo setups. they use the cooler feed and returns to oil the turbo. doesn't sound too great of an idea to me, since the turbo is gonna get the oil REAL hot, but i see it done quite often.
That totally does not make any sense. If you have two fluids, in this case, water(coolant) and oil, both being cooled by ambient temperature, and recirculated through the motor, and then if you change the system, and now only have one fluid cooling the system, and no increase in the cooling capacity of the remaining fluid/system, how would it not make the engine run hotter??It doesn't really make a water cooled engine run hotter.
I understand what you are saying, and agree to some extent, but there is no way, I am gonna believe, that a bike runs cooler without an oil cooler, than with it.The oil cooler is meant to protect engine oil from thermal breakdown
but synthetic oil doesn't need to be protected from that, it's good enough on its own
The water cooling system on a bike in motion is actually more efficient than it needs to be. Without a thermostat system, the engine would be cooled to below it's best operating temperature. The oil cooler no longer has an effect on cooling the engine itself, it's only designed to slow the degradation of the oil.
Doesn't run cooler, doesn't run hotter. The oil runs hotter, and breaks down faster. I'm not saying it's a good thing, but if you keep up on your oil checks then you shouldn't have a problem.I understand what you are saying, and agree to some extent, but there is no way, I am gonna believe, that a bike runs cooler without an oil cooler, than with it.
You have to remove the oil jetting that routes oil to the cooler..Okey guys I have an old 88 Hurricane cbr600 that has the oil cooler up in the front right underneath where the fairing used to be, it looks waaay ugly and would like to get rid of it. So from what you guys are saying I can get rid of it by plugging up the holes from the engine to the oil cooler and my engine will not blow up or overheat? Would I have to change to synthetic oil? I was thinking abourt relocating the cooler but if i can get rid of it I would love to do that. Im just afraid my engine might blow up if I do. Let me know your thoughts guys. Thanks
