xr650l oil cooler review
XR650L has turned out to be such a great bike.
Last year trip through British Columbia the XRs did great, but noticed they ran pretty hot. So we asked Colin to install oil coolers on them while he stored them for us.
We chose the Sutton xr650l oil cooler kit. Really nice cooler kit. Honestly one of the cleaner, better packaged kits i’ve seen for any MC. All brackets, lines, a rock guard, everything included.
- Previously my bike ran average 230 degrees ripping 70mph highway for endless hours.
- Now it’s running average 210 degrees, same 70mph highway ripping.
Dropping temps 20 degrees is pretty damn good.
So, money well spent imo.
Just did a long ass weekend around Glacier.
Bike was a champ.

so i finally got clip-ons on my suzi. i lowered the headlight, raised the tank, removed as much wiring as possible (still in progress), and mocked up a seat and tail assembly. i’m currently riding with the final mocked seat pan (as some saw covered in thermal material), next is the bobbed rear fender with my new taillight and mini signals….etc. the new stance is nasty and the bike is way more fun. more mods to come…as well as the very start of my 71 cb 350 cafe. -chris
