    Hi again, Has anyone had any experience with these Finned Billet Aluminum Heat Sink Oil Coolers? The ad for them says they were sold by Harley, and listed in their catalog, in 1997. They are a finned piece that slips over the filter and is supposed to lower oil temps by 20 degrees. I can see how the fins would help in disapaying heat but 20 degrees? Just wanted some opinions. Thanks all

    I don't see how it could be anywhere near as good as a radiator type cooler. It would probably help some or let's say it wouldn't hurt to have one.

    Save your money and if you are going to do anything, add a plumbed in oil cooler.
