There's a guy on ADVrider making oil cooler adaptors for XT225s & TW200s.

Here's the thread: http://www.advrider....ad.php?t=793258

I don't know if the same design would work for the WR450 since it's a dry sump, but it sure would be nice to be able to increase the oil capacity and also cool it. I asked if he'd consider making them for the WR450. If any of you guys are interested it would be good to tell him so he would know that there is a market for them.

Nice... but I am not sure why anyone would really invest in a oil cooler for an engine that is water cooled.

The engine and oil will stay a whole lot cooler if you spend $100 for a set of those chinese radiators off of ebay. My engine runs a whole lot cooler now because of the increased coolant capacity.

Try it and you will see.

I agree. To me the main advantage would be that it allows you to increase your oil capacity. An additional Liter would have to be a good thing for an engine which only holds a little more than 1 Liter and calls for 10 hour oil changes. Right?

Is the seller is "Tuningcooler"? I'd like to try them, but I run Flatland Racing guards on my stockers. I'm guessing these won't fit since they look oversize.

There are a bunch of different sellers. You have to use the Moose Racing guards.

I had Flatland guards. They are nowhere near as sturdy as the Moose Racing ones.

These are the ones that I got...

It's not the cooling ability I'm looking for but more for the ability to add more capacity. For cooling I have two big Fluidyne radiators on mine and I'm looking to add a fan.
