Oil and cooling

So the Daytona's run a little hot. Has anyone(I'm sure there is a threat dedicated to this) used a certain type of synthetic oil(in theory keep the engine cooler).
If not anything else folks have used. I did read that someone just used a different type (blended) of coolant to help offset the heating issue.
Or is it an issue that you just live with.
My summers can get pretty hot where I live(humid too)

I use Mobil 1 4T 10w/40. The coolant helps cool the oil. I am about to change my coolant over to Prestone 50/50.

Easy fix to getting too hot, get on TuneEcu and set the fan temp to 100 degrees celcius instead of 106.

My coolant needed topping off when I got my bike, I just went ahead and topped it off with some water wetter.
