Hi guys, quick one, looking to replace my oil cooler for an aftermarket one, my bike will be turbo so wanting to get one which will be right for the engine. Any suggestions into brand and or size? many thanks in advance. bobby

Air or oil cooled? No turbo bike has ever suffered with a big cooler (if the engine is making the heat!) Mocal or Setrab have a good rep - Chinese copies will be a lot cheaper. Dash 8 / 1/2" or Dash 10 5/8" fittings - bigger = less restriction. I didn't increase my 250mm width 19 row used with a 1100 GSXR when I added a turbo, but it did get hot during summer stops - best to keep moving or stop engine at traffic lights etc.

19 row setrab extra wide about 330mm pipe centres helps with steering lock. Does depend on what you are building as well.

It’s going on a 1052 GSXR motor, I’m looking to position it under the headlights so it has good air flow. So the dash 10 5/8 are the ones to go for? What row would you recommend?

would this be alright, I don’t understand the fitting sizes etc 

That would be good - wider than mine = bigger surface area = better cooling. Search out the Mocal oil cooling info on the Think Automotive website - lots of useful info there which should answer some of your queries. https://www.thinkauto.com
