I’ve noticed some tt600’s and speed fours have oil coolers fitted and some don’t. Were these optional extras or country/area specific?
Thinking about fitting one to my tt600 (that is now semi-naked) purely as it runs hot anyway so wouldn’t harm it if I were to fit (uk summer time use only)

Would the oil filter be different from the HF191 (or equivalents) if so what oil filter would I need and any ideas how the coolers are mounted?

Thanks

Oil cooler? I don't recall an oil cooler on either TT600 I had, nor do I recall an oil cooler on any of the S4s I saw over the years. Do you have a picture of what you are talking about?

It's a squid thing. You wouldn't understand.

Go soothingly on the grease mud, as there lurks the skid demon.

The water fed oil cooling jacket under the oil filter. (Not conventional air cooled like on a bandit) Usually has a water in pipe and water out pipe.
A previous later model tt600 I had that was imported from Europe had one, my current early uk model does not.
Is it a case of buying a jacket an extended spindle plus pipework and screwing it on or are the threads on the block different?

Gotcha. I don't know the answer to any of those questions. What I can tell you is that if you are planning something like that, it's a good idea to check clearances. I'm not sure how it would fit with the exhaust header. But, if you have seen it done, then it can be done.

What I found is that a properly running TT600 will see indicated temperatures up to 110 C or more sitting in traffic. The temperature then drops to about 70 C when you are back in motion.

All sorted. Bought a second hand jacket, spindle and pipework. The standard 191 oil filter fits also.

Good to hear. I'm curious to see what it is you mean. I just flat don't recall anything like that.
