This is kinda what I'm trying to avoid !
Won't make a difference when the bike is on the move.
A cooler fitted is better than no cooler at all.
Best to run the hoses between the intake rubbers so that the oil has the shortest run and they aren't in the way of carb removal.
Could do with lowering the cooler on it's mount to so you have room to run the hoses inwards, between the frame rails and over the camcover.
