J*ker said: I had one that was close to that on my 79 and it seemed to work alright. Not quite as much mass area as the square ones have but basic concept. http://i36.photobucket.com/albums/e43/warrior441/IMG_0695.jpg

r*cketdog said: I could see cracking being an issue with something being made out of aluminum, being stretched out over a length wise surface and on an 80 mph vibrator. I have read differing opinons about cooling effectiveness, some say a little as 5 degrees. Although there is a lot of area in length, there is not a whole lot a extended cooling fin area to bleed off heat. As always, much respect and thanks for the insight Mr. Lupe!

H*rdware said: Rocket, I have that same unit and it works pretty good, drop temps by about 10-15 percent I am working on a mod for it. Will share if it works. Hardware
*dcase said: i found these individual one to be cheaper and no problems with vibration http://i291.photobucket.com/albums/ll302/Edcase_photos/th_bikejune2011041-crop-3.jpg (http://s291.photobucket.com/albums/ll302/Edcase_photos/?action=view¤t=bikejune2011041-crop-3.jpg)
H*rdware said: Hey Rocket, If you buy on of these I have a set of the stand off brackets to attach to your frame. They come in two sizes. Let me know what size your frame is and, you reimburse shipping, I will forward if they are the right ones. Hardware

Or at least that's what KT says, it looks fatter though. I'll measure the down tubes and if i decide to buy one of those coolers I'll give you a shout!
H*wg Ryder said: Just like Joker I run the earlier version which is "straight" and doesn't follow the frame angles. I mostly run it for "looks" cause it lines up nicely with my mousetrap spring...and I run my bike hard for long distance rides at 80MPH....I've had mine on there for too many years to remember any longer and it ain't never cracked...and I don't have any supports at the bottom...see how nicely it complements my mousetrap spring? Details count...LOL!! :D http://www.nortonsnakedbbq.com/hawgstuff/hrstroker4.jpg
Sh*velJockey said: I run one. dono if it works or not, but Ive never had oil tank temps over 200
D*nnis said: I got one been running it for a couple of years works fine.
D*gbone 80 said: yep..run one just like it
sp*repartsracing said: I put one of them on 79 about 8 or 9 years ago I can say the chrome did not hold up at all. The chrome is peeling and pitting. I will be pulling it off the bike when I redo the top end again as soon as Nightmare comes off my bench.
sh*velin said: I put that unit on my bike. Dropped the oil temp in the hottest weather from a high of 215 down to 195. Works great, looks great

Rocketdog http://demonscy.ipower.com/i_pics/oil_cooler_ll_1.jpg Would not run this, Unless it was black.......An old gear head told me long ago that chrome is shit for the displacement of heat. I wont run chrome anywhere on my motors....Hope it helps........
str*ker93 said: A chrome plated cooler makes NO sense to me,,,chrome holds heat...I run aluminum or brass coolers,,,Any metal with a texture will cool better than a smooth finish...I don't run chrome oil tanks or engine parts either,,same reason. Dave
