    I have one of these OEM oil coolers that's brand new if anyone is looking for one. PM me if interested.

    I'm guessing that's for a DR650?

    I thought someone else in this thread said it was an option for the 350.

    Yes, an oil cooler was an option for the DR350. The one in your photo, however, is not the one for the DR350. The cooler, guard, and both hoses are all different then what was offered for the DR350.

    Wow, just a few months ago I hadn't seen one of these, now I've seen two:

    Yesterday the auction was at $75, today it's at $119, the last one went for $300 (and it was used :eek1). Let's see where this one goes. I will not be bidding on this one. If someone here wants to bid on it, let us know so hopefully we won't have ADVers bidding against each other.

    The oil lines are different, but the eBay oil cooler really looks a whole lot like Jeff's DR650 cooler. The part numbers don't cross-reference, so I'm guessing they are not compatible, but I wonder how much difference there really is.

    Good find. From what I've seen, the angle of the oil line connections on the oil cooler itself appear different between the DR350 and DR650.

    Why is that?

    BTW, after selling all those parts are you going to have a bike left?

    Why i decided not to install it...........

    Well I got away from KTMs and BMWs because I wanted a simple older tech machine. I just didn't want to complicate the simple air cooled design by adding one more thing that could go wrong. Yes I think it helps with cooling but the added it could get damaged because I do drop my bike or a oil hose failure; I just think Ill hold off. If it sells great if not maybe this summer if it gets super hot ill reconsider.

    I hear you. I went to the DR from the WR because issues with water cooling prevented myself and multiple friends from enjoying good rides. With an oversized tank and skidplate, the oil cooler is very well protected, but I also understand the philosophy of keeping things simple.

    Hi Pablo

    Bumped into you on other post Xmas. I have a gr650 and speedo is now shot, tacho is going to get cable coming thru post and I am relying on gps which i have to remove all the time to avoid someone else doing the same. I don't really want to move away from original speedo/dash but given two other options I might need to. I am looking at the $50 new, seperate speedos or second hand other model/make. Any advice is well recieved?

    Congrats to ADV BUM who won the auction and got it cheaper (including shipping from Sweden) than the used oil cooler went for. :clap

    CAUTION: ADV BUM also points out there is another new cooler up for auction:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Optional-oi...rcycles_Parts_Accessories&hash=item1c30b29401

    But this one uses the exact same picture as the last one and the seller only has two feedbacks as a seller (the rest of his feedback is as a buyer). I think the auction is a little sketchy.

    I think someone asked a while back if I could copy the pattern for the pieces to box the swingarm. I just found those patterns. If you still want them, post up.

    Buy one of these and wire it in. That is it?

    Any other tips. How do you prevent discharging the cap into you and dying. Would a bigger rating of uF or a smaller one of volts be better?

    I wouldn't worry about discharging the cap into yourself and dying. At the 12 to 14 volts that you would be putting into the cap you could easily touch both ends with licked fingers and not feel a thing.

    If I were you guys and were thinking about doing this, I would solder the capacitor to a piece of PCB and then solder much larger leads so that the wires weren't directly tugging on the thin capacitor leads.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/RadioShack-PC-15-Round-PCB-12071870-/400422640588#vi-content

    Something like that, then drill a much larger gauge hole for the leads the connect to where the battery was.

    Yep. I found one at Radio Shack that had the leads on opposite ends which made it a little easier to work with.

    There is a + and - side to the cap. Be sure to install it like you would a battery.

    You can short the two ends with a screwdriver blade or put some type of load on it, like turning on the headlight without the engine running.

    I have no clue. 2200uF was recommended somewhere else (I forget where) and it has worked well for me so far.

    1990 DR250S (wide ratio) transmission on eBay, $95:

    This winter has really been great for finding some of the more rare parts that I used on my bike. I now have 1 spare oil cooler and 2 spare trannys for my bike, and another one just popped up on eBay. Anyone can feel free to grab it. I would buy it at that price if I didn't have enough extras all ready.
