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.

- Previously my bike ran average 230 degrees ripping 70mph highway for endless hours.
- Now it’s running average 210 degrees, same 70mph highway ripping.

Just did a long ass weekend around Glacier.
Bike was a champ.
