My wife and I love our new ride! Just have one question; why does it run so darn hot?
Over the last 110 years Harley-Davidson motors have been getting bigger and bigger to create more power and with that comes more heat. Extreme engine heat can be generated when our air-cooled Harley ends up in a day of traffic or even on the road during the summer.
One solution is to add a heat exchanger or oil cooler. This simple system will take the oil away from the engine, run it through a series of coils, and with the help of a fan, it will cool the oil before returning it on its’ route through the oil filter. Many systems even have a thermostat that allows the fan to kick on at a set temperature of about 220 degrees.
In this video, Bob and Mark walk you through a Harley Davidson oil cooler installation step by step. They show you all the mounting, plumbing, and even the placement of a “System On” LED.
Sit back grab a cool one and get ready to cool your Hog.
