Hey everyone picking up my first Harley after work today. It's an 08 heritage soft tail. Been doing some research on Harley's and liked that 07+ had an over heat system where it went down a cylinder and a 6 speed transmission. Is the 96 a good motor? Bike has 3300 miles on it so its not even broken in. First mod I'd like to do would be an oil cooler. I've always road water cooled bikes so I'm worried about over heating and breaking something. Anyway here's a pic of her.

Nice bike. The 96 should be fine. They Harleys will run hot but you can add X-ieds to it to help cool it down. They run about $110.00 and just go inline with your O2 sensors.
