no oil cooler

Recommended Posts

hi lads just built a ssr125 runs good but it should have a oil cooler on but it was broken so i blocked the two holes up so i run it without it,Now is it ok to run without an oil cooler.

Thanks

ps

it was smoking a lot so i  have changed rings and one valve and seal now it one smokes a bit, but still to much what you think i should do,It does run good and fast tho.

thanks

I just added a cooler to mine, cause you can spit on the cases and the spit will evaporate before it hits the cases they get so hot.   Run 100% synthetic 20/50 oil in it and never go  back to regular oil.  Valvoline sells best oils for hot running bikes, I get mine at Wallmart, Says  100% synthetic, 4 stroke motorcycle oil right on the container..  and its only about 8 bucks a quart.

Oh and keep an eye on Valve adjustments, check every 10 to 15 hours of riding time.   My SSR 125 TR settings are between .003 and .005 thousands of an inch, I set mine at .004 and it runs real nice that way.

 Good luck

Gary
