I've got a 1990 GSX-R1100 L, Stage III, etc, etc. I'm wondering if anyone knows if I can swap the big 'ole curved cooler with a smaller one since I have no fairings, etc and the bike should be getting a lot more air cooling.

I want a nice clean look, but I don't want to overheat either !

has anyone tried usin' a radiator (for coolant) as an oil cooler? i was lookin' at the 93-95 750.. and woah.. is that thing juicy lookin'.. the oil cooler lines seem to be a lot smaller in diameter.. so if u fabricated on some fittings to a radiator for stock inside diameter oil lines.. would this in theory work? i haven't been able to find much on the net in regards to the differences between radiators and oil coolers.... anyone know?


here's the 93-95 750 radiator... thing looks almost as big as a GP radiator... now i see where that water cooled gsxr got a lot of it's weight problems






and about usin' the curved oil cooler on 88-89s... i believe the mountin' tabs are identical.. keyword believe... but i do know that the curved oil cooler went along w/ the oil pans that had the oil lines comin' out from the front, instead of on the bottom

makes me wonder if the B&M super tranny coolers would be a good investment for the bike. 6 X 11 X 1 1/2 w/ hose and all the fittings for $60.00ish via ebay.

csjunemann:

did you used clamps over the hoses to secure them in place?

That cooler seems to use hose and clamp in both ends... wondering if such setup leaks.....

Sweet, My stocker is still performing well, but I had been wondering where to find a replacement. It looks fragile, and I am not good with fragile things...
