billetcooler

does anyone use billetcooler oil cooler. does it cool as good as the front mounted coolers like the hd one.

i think i like this one better because theres no hoses to leak or thing to get hit or vibrate. any suggestion or feed back please.

the only thing i see about this one is if i decided to run another cooler i dont think i could with the billetcooler... thanks in advance for any help.

Mine cost $10, I don't know how well it works,

it gets too hot to touch and it's in the wind.

I bought one of these on Ebay for $10 and $6 for shipping, it says fits any 2 7/8 or 3" filter, so it won't be tight on my filter which measures 2 7/8, but it can't have fins on the backside anyway, too close to the engine, I'll have to cut them off or slice the whole thing in half lengthwise and bend it inward some so it would be a 'C' shape smaller in diameter than the filter body, and slip it over the end, and have a sproing tight fit, and maybe with a couple of kick ass little magnets to hold it in place. Another idea would be to slice the center section out of the side where the tightening bolts are, then drill holes for two small Allen bolts side to side there that would make it a tight fitting clamp, spray it wrinkle black, maybe even square off and polish the ends of the fins to match my engine, and switch to a black filter from chrome. If I liked the anodized detail they come in ruby red too, but wrinkle black would actually cool a lot better. Hell it might actually work a little. $10 worth anyway.

I've got one similar to that. HD used to sell them for Evo's I think.
Anyway, it adds extra surface area to the filter. I don't think it would be a efficient as a radiator type cooler though.

I don't think it works anything like as well as a Jagg cooler,

but it's a good bit more cooling surface than the oil had before.

Both by convection and radiation. I'm not really convinced my bike

is suffering from oil temps anyway, not a $300 cooler worth anyway,

so it prolly works about as well as my bike is gonna get.

Dave did one too, when I did mine, he's not convinced it made much difference,

but I still think it's better than nothing. A bit of oil or grease as heat sink

seems a good idea, and the clamp will almost wrinkle the filter, so a tight fit is assured.

It's an interersting look, they had a ruby red version too. The anodized color is forever.
