New bobber needs more oil

I purchased a bobber on Sat that has a twin cam engine. The builder had a second oil filter sitting on the frame next to the rear sprocket for extra oil and cooling. Somewhere along the way this was bypassed and removed. I'm thinking about adding a oil cooler in the same spot, one that bolts to the frame like the Pro One.

Do you guys see any problems with it? IMO, the bike needs the extra oil for cooling. I know its not mounted up front for better cooling but it seems like this would be the best spot since the line are already there.

Do you guys have any suggestions?

Below is a write up and pictures about it. I tried loading a couple pictures but their way to big.

Okay, lets try another picture.

The mount and filter are no longer there.

sorry, the pictures are just too big and I don't have the talent to resize them. I'll keep trying. Photobucket is more like bucket of shit

Sounds like you would be just fine....I have a home made cooler made of 10 feet of copper tubing mounted
under my transmission, It does an amazing job..

52, thanks for the reply. So you think using a pro one oil cooler or something = would do the job ?

I have another question regarding the seat pan. The builder says its from Todd Cycles. I checked thier site ( not much info at all there) and dont see anything. I'd like to buy another pan and have it covered in black leather, or buy one thats already done. Any suggestions on the seat?

I'm not going to be much help on either one of those..I didn't feel like messing with those little oil coolers, that's why I made my own, and there is a guy here in the forum that does those seat pans, I am sure someone will be along here shortly and direct you..if they don't drink too much beer..

The copper tubing is a great idea. I worry about proper flow, but obviously its working for you.

Thanks again

Fwiw, this is the oil cooler I'm looking at.

I think the oil cooler is a fine idea back there, I have that style on my shovel, Wimmer Machine makes them in several styles with a variety of finishes and frame clamp sizes...

Thanks for allthe help. Its nice to hear from all of you. Im going to go over to pro one this week and see what they have. Their only about 20 miles away. I'd like for the unit to have only kne mounting bracket.

I'm goimg to attempt another picture. I'd really like to find another seat pan that has the same mounting hardware.The info on stie linked above said the seat pan was from Todds cyclce.

I'll wait until my 15 year old son gets home to help me with the pictures

The pictures are fairly easy..Click on the little camera below your user name....You need to size to about 500 pixels..use Photoshop or similar program.....save to your hard drive....click on the Maltese cross to your left..when the page comes up,look.up in the right hand
corner of the page...under (log in) click( up load photos)...browse and find your photo....upload your photo to your photo gallery......Go to your photo gallery and find your photo...open it...highlight the code at the bottom of the picture ... copy....then go to your post and then paste.....Same process using the URL box..

not needed - more restriction to already weak flow

Which is better for oil flow, the twin cam or the evo?



The return and the vent are on the left top of the oil tank so thats 4-6 more inches..

That oil cooler isn't restrictive at all, it's more or less a small oil tank with fins. In general the Evo and TC flow about the same amount of oil, the TC pushes the oil at a higher pressure.

I agree, once I had the air bled out of my roll of copper tubing, you could easily blow the oil through by mouth....it's the air in the line that makes it difficult..be sure to bleed all air out before cranking her..no problem for an oil pump.....If I remember, my oil temp. dropped from 190 to about 163 degrees
