fixing additional oil cooler ?

Hi noticed the oil temperature shooting upto 99 deg in this winter conditions( outside temperature are 25 to 38 deg )
How ever summer outside temperatures are 38 to 46 deg so expecting oil temperature to shoot up beyond 105 ?
Thinking of having Additional Oil Cooler with fan any Readymade Kit options available ?

There was a TT option.

They stopped selling it after 2004. An italian guy made one of these. I don't know if he produced any.

It's doable, but IMO you'd need a thermostat not to overcool the engine

IMHO the oil doesn't care what temp it is. It just does its thing. We worry because 100 is a round figure and water boils around there at msl. The cooling system will keep everything in check. Think about the Darker a couple of days ago... the poor riders were melting before the oil complained. Don't worry about it.
