75 ironhead

i live in florida and it gets pretty hot here. i have a 75 ironhead and i normally run 60 weight oil but im wondering if i should use something else with the hot summer right around the corner. i was thinking of using a synthetic. the bike is way past the break in period. was rebuilt about 1 !/2 yeas ago. also thinkg of trying the lucas 70 weight oil. im trying everything i can think of to get it to run cooler in this florida heat. i installed on it not long ago a jagg slimline 1200 oil cooler and it seems to help but the bike still gets pretty hot.
any ideas or opinions would be very welcome.
thanks paul
