Was anyone able to fit an oil cooler to the V7 I/II? I know there is the sump spacer option but are there any solutions for adding a small radiator?
I agree it shouldn't be needed - was just curious whether there is a quick option to add oneRecently got one of those oil dipstick temp gauges and most times they indicate ~110 *C oil temp which I thought a bit excessive. I then checked the calibration of the gauge and was indicating about 5-6 degrees higher so that's still 105 degrees oil temp and it's not even summer.
I once owned an Evo Sportster. I had issues with milky oil in the cooler months. I would bet that it ran hotter than the typical Guzzi due to one cylinder being behind the other. I believe the dry sump and the remote oil bag, reservoir, were the main culprits. I wouldn't worry in the least about your Guzzi running too hot. 1400's have an oil cooler but they are twice the size and need them. They get a bit warm in stop and go but nothing like an air-cooled Harley.kk
If I still had it I would let you ride my 110" Harley in stop and traffic on a 90+ degree day. The heat will get so bad you will have to shut it down when stopped. Unbearable. One reason I don't have it anymore. Maybe the rear doesn't get any hotter the the front but it is only a couple of inches from the inner thigh. Twin Cam Harleys are the pits.kk
If ya ever looked inside a MkII sump you would see the corrugated floor of the sump . This increases surface area to increase heat transfer . That said i was concerned too , and as my ďadv. Riding ďdays are in the mirrors I went with a sump spacer ! I donít think a bit of ďextraĒoil will hurt . Yeah Iíve heard the ďthe oil will never come up to temp ďside of things . But Iíll take that gamble too
I did consider the sump spacer but was worried about the ground clearance.. have you got a pic of yours? it takes about 1 litre more oil I believe? I thought the <potential> oil cooler option would be more flexible and without losing ground clearance..
Thanks Kev m for the pics, so you had no issues with the ground clearance? I don't plan to take it off road or anything but looks like it does extend a bit.Re https://guzziepiushop.de/ that's exactly what I had in mind, just a way to tap into the feed to add a radiator:Seems like everyone's advice is to keep using it as is, will continue to monitor this maybe I'll get used to seeing higher temps Cheers!
The only people outside of Italy who I know have done small bloc oil coolers are here https://guzziepiushop.de/ in Germany.
