Hello JD,
Thank you for the compliments on my work.

I can give you some quotes from some of the inmates on the performance of the kit.

"This oil cooler works well. Before the cooler, my bike would see 225 to 240 degrees regularly, the higher temps, especially at freeway speeds of 60 to 70 mph. I have the XR'sOnly oil temperature dipstick. Riding around on Saturday, it never got above 210! Sunday was a bit cooler. A fellow inmate and I rode out to Hacienda Santa Veronica which is just south and east of Tecate, and is probably at an elevation of 4 to 5000 feet. Much colder up there. I'm guessing the high there was in the 40's. The bike never got above 200. There were even times where we were running at 55 mph and the oil temp was sitting at 175."

"Definitely keeps the temp down. After checkin several times for drips and errors I ran her pretty hard for ~ 50 mi and she pushed 200 but came right back down once I relaxed the throttle and ran at a responsible pace."

"hey mark I've had the cooler on for a few weeks now and it works great!
 Ambient air temps between 70 and 100 oil temps run 180 to 220 even riding hard or at slow speeds..."

I hope this helps,
