I found a happy medium with the big tip and the perforated metal behind it.
ah for the exhaust. gotcha.

If you went with a bolt-on AL type it would only have to be 3/16 to be durable enough.

I have also though of making a hollow handle to attach to the down tube on one or two sides of the down tube. This could be bent tubing. More oil and some cooling. I have seen coolers made like this for Hydraulic tanks.

And i have been wanting to install this somewhere. I removed it from a Sicon radiator. It's for power steering cooling. It's two brass tubes brazed together. A lot of surface area there. Oil flows in the side at the hose barbs. It could go in the return line. Position so air from the "lips" blows through.

Which of the two XR's Only XR650R Skid Plates works the best, or fits, or is cooler?

Oil cooler....or leave it alone..

Maybe Fritzcoinc.com can start sellin oil coolers...shaped like texas or sumpin

The Horizontal fins welded to the down tube that taco mentioned sounds interesting as does the finned oil line(s) OnO mentioned.

Typical ford, on the end of a tow strap.

A little something like this:





Hardest part of all that would be the welding.

was thinking vertical fins. Less dirt or mud catching.

Hopefully someone will see this and come up with something possibly flat that could either be broke at 90 degrees or cut into strips. Aluminum would be the HOT ticket. Or maybe some type of corrugated aluminum for surface area.

Well the first one is cooler....whether it fits or not i`m not sure,,i think the old design that did fit is no longer being made.........

To make it really cool you gotta have lots of holes in it,,or it`ll just suck

Another good idea...heat shields kinda like they put on 2 stroke pipes to prevent dents in the pipe.just need to space them off the pipe alittle..
