fatcaaat said:I am going to build a kit for a cheap oil cooler setup. This setup will cost the consumer about $75-80 and use high-end components. Why? Because I am sick of these large companies ripping off people for stuff that doesn't cost anywhere near what we are paying for it.
So, what I need is a picture...from one of you guys that have an expensive oil cooler. I need a picture of the backside of the oil cooler adapter plate. Once I have that, I will modify my plate, get some adapters, and put on a HP 4 row cooler.
I have a temperature gauge in my oil and will determine the effectiveness of the cooling once completed with some scientific testing (15 minutes of 50mph driving from a cold start) with and without the cooler and take temperature readings.
find some ideas (pics) over at Monkey Bike UK: http://www.monkeybike.co.uk/acatalog/Oil_Coolers__Oil_Pumps___Breathers.html click onto the pics to enlarge them. sorry, none shows the back of the oilcooler plate.
you could just buy one of the available oilcooler plates and copy them on a CNC machine out of billet. thats exactly what we have in mind for a certain 125cc Monkey (Z50) engine but plate will not fit the 50-110cc engines used in XR50/CRF50. the pick up points for the oil cooler on our plate will be in a different position to avoid leakage.
