This is brilliant! The price is great too. Unfortunately I just sold my TW a couple of months ago. Here's your bump.

The prototype companion cooler is almost there. Toughness and impact resistance of billet while maximizing heat transfer and designed to fit perfectly in the most usable and sheltered real estate available on these bikes. Universal fit for all four bikes (TW Cali canister mount pictured). Bolts directly to downtube on non-Cali XT's, TTR's and TW's. Multiple hole pattern permits custom mounting elsewhere or on other bikes. Sized to clear most of the popular retrofit tanks without interference:

Question Wr450

Any chance of making one for the WR450 ? A lot of folks are dual sporting them, and more oil capacity & a cooler would be great.

The 225 family of engines is a wet sump with bypass filtering and for that reason there is no danger of our adapter causing loss of oil pressure in the system.

Dry sumps often call for a different strategy, but down the road we'll offer solutions for those, as well.

That's great to hear you'll try to do them too. I figured it would be different & probably trickier with the dry sump and the dual drains. When you have them let us know & also the YZ guys.

Btw, you should tell the folks at http://www.xt225.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=cfrm and the Thumper Talk model specific threads.

I've gone through their registration process a several times. No love and no confirmation email.

I was gunna make some of their members a smokin' offer, but instead I'll post it here and on the XT225 thread.

I figger most are also inmates and frequent ADV anyway. This place is like the Hotel California.:



"I'm looking for volunteers in the high desert of SoCal (preferably the Victor Valley) to let me use their bike for a trial fit of our new prototype oil cooler. I don't need to take your bike, ride it or even start it, I just need to fondle it for about 15 minutes and snap a few pics.. I'll come to you, and in exchange you'll receive one of my shiny new oil cooler adapters which not only works flawlessly in its intended capacity but is also suitable for framing and makes a dandy paperweight.

We're designing kits around our new cooler for all the bikes sharing this engine family, so if you're interested in offering your bike for a few minutes, reasonably local to Victorville/Hesperia/ Apple Valley, and own either an XT225, TTR225 or TTR230 ,or know someone who does and would be
interested in the offer, PM me your contact info."

n16ht5,what was that company?

Lizrdcooler, the prototype cooler you machined is pretty trick looking in itself.
Are you going to sell them?

Thanks. They get more effective with each revision. It's nice to hear glad to hear that they're also attractive in the bargain. Great feedback.

Yes. The cooler and the adapter will remain available either seperately or combined in application-specific kits.
