  • Anyone use Barons oil cooler (fork mounted)?

    Got a chance to buy one brand new....looks like a tiny radiator and mounts between forks. They any good/useful? I've never had an issue with over heating but can pick this up new for $50.

    Do you mean between the frame front tubes, on the forks it would need a pretty long flexible hose

      Does it come with a filter adaptor and hoses? $50 is a good price if it does. The adaptor is about $100 by itself.

        That what I was wondering....it's says 2625RD...but can't find much info on it. And the pic shows the radiator/cooler but can't see much else.....

            I think the radiator mounts between the fork tubes and then there is a "cap" with hose fittings that goes on the stock filter location.....

            I don't think I "need" one but if it's complete for $50 I'd probably get it

              Why do you want this? How hot does it get in Indiana? Certainly not for looks. Part of the joy of having an air cooled bike is not having to look at some radiator-lookin' thing hanging down. More points for potential leaks too. I live in the middle of the Sonoran Desert and I wouldn't consider one. When I am faced with a decision like this , I make a list of Pro's and Con's to help me weigh it out. Right now, I don't see any pro's on your list. Yes, I'm sure it's a good deal compared to the price of a new one. But is it a good deal if you don't need it? I can think of a far better deal. Save your $50 for something you really need. Reminds me of my wife going shopping. Comes home with a bunch of shit we never use, then proceeds to tell me how much money she saved 'cause it was all on sale.

                  I think it is useless, even if your a shriner you have to be moving for air to cool the cooler.........
                  not all those who wander are lost......

                    You guys that think it is useless should keep in mind that we already run our bikes with less oil than recommended by Yamaha. Less oil means runs hotter. The cooler will give a little more oil capacity to help run cooler even without moving. A cooler may not be absolutely necessary but it also can't hurt anything. Hell we all do things to our bikes all the time that isn't absolutely necessary. Why aren't we all riding bikes that are exactly like they were when they come out of the box. The rest of the shit we put on them wasn't needed at all.

                      Well Dave, you are right, but you and I both know how we like to tinker, and make our bikes the way we want them.
                      When I was a kid, I'd tinker and change stuff around on my bicycles. I'd take parts that came off my sister's and brother's bike, then put them on my bike.
                      Yes, I did get in trouble, but it was worth it?

                      Yes it can be but a cooler won't put it to, to low of a temp.

                    No fear of that now unless you are delivering a trailer load of Toilet paper, Then you would get thru.

                      The bikes will go 200,000 plus miles with out it. You going to try to go for 400,000 or will you get better gas mileage, Just what is the true pay back for your $50.

                      Well the guy had someone buy it before me so I don't need to worry about it. Guy sold me brand new rear axle chrome covers for $10 and a dash key rubber bezel nserrn (new) for $2.50 and a new pair of AIS plugs for $12. So about $30 shipped and ingot some cool parts for the bike and for the shelf.
