Re: Adding an Oil Cooler
The normal way is to use the extra cooler as a head cooler - like the GSXR750RK had, linking the feed from top of cases, behind the barrels, to the new cooler and from there back to the cam cover - this reduces oil temperature before it goes to the hottest part of the engine. Extra cooling on hard used o/c engines is always helpful.
Even altering the fairing spacing around the engine can help cooling too, just to help airflow around the engine. I think the Yoshimura bikes even used two curved coolers sandwiched together. as well as a head cooler and another cooler at the rear ! - but they were at the extreme end of performance though.
Good luck for next season.
