in line cooler

anybody ever use inline coolers on there motorcycles and if so do they work?

Had one on a CRF250R. Did it work? Not until I hit mach 2.6. :thumbsup: Honestly, no idea. The bike didn't boil any more or less.

Cooling is all about surface area. Your bike holds about a quart of coolant. Look at how big your radiators are, the cylinder, and barrel. A lot of surface area that that little amount of coolant is exposed to. Look at the device you are looking at. Think.

I think he's talking about oil.....

There are inline coolers for your radiator hoses as well.

That just sounds as good as the electric intake supercharger!

Possibly more effective though.....

Oil/Water, same thing. With a dry sump, you have a fairly large 'can' exposing the quart of oil. A real oil cooler (not just a little pipe with some external fins) would add some benefit by increasing the oil capacity as well as increasing the radiating surface area. But you'd need a thermostat. Next you need to consider all the extra weight.

In reality, the stock water cooling is all you need. If you do very slow tight trail riding, then consider adding a cooling fan to the radiator to keep the airflow moving avross the fins.

Yes, I've used them on street bikes for years, and they definately work miracles keeping the oil temp in check, which in turn increases engine life. I haven't seen anything offered for a 250f, but if you see a brand, tell us about it.
