Sure seems to be that way...the oil flow schematic shown in post 2747 doesn't show an oil cooler.

I like the bike...it sort of puts the GS back on the map for me. The wet clutch is key. I think it looks good...in a modern way...I could do without the forked tounge on the beak though. Since all the lights are now LED, the reduced alternator output is a non-issue. And having the oil fill and the sight glass on the same side..genius ! The instruments look tidy--but I would have preferred a digital speedo. The wind protection looks like it could be better --the screen seems to be closer and more angled back toward the rider with bigger ears (the dark grey plastic down low).
