Just finished adding an Oil Cooler for WR450

As far as the custom mounting bracket I think I can talk Brian of Unabiker into making them as an option with a new set of guards. It is really the only item that is fabricated and not purchased. That way any TT member can add an oil cooler without owning a machine shop.
I think the oil cooler will help the longevity of these great motors even if you dont have the issues I run into in the mountains out west or in tight woods out east.

Did you try fitting a fan to the radiators prior to fitting the oil cooler?

Thats a good point you make. Prior to rebuilding my 450, I wanted it to be the baddest and sickest Dualsport out there. I used to ride it everywhere with the bigger bikes. In technical terrain I would run the crap out of em.
Now i just dont know. If the average yamaha engine lasts 10 000miles. What the point in have longer oil changes if the duration between rebuilds stays the same.
Im now religiously chaging oil every 10hours instead of 600miles (about 30 hours)
On another note, how much extra oil does the bike take now?

one of the guys sent me the files for mounting the WR450F oil cooler and routing the hoses etc, i've posted them if anyone is after them. should just be a right click and "save as". its a 10mb file.
