My SP1 got some more SP2 parts.
Purpose of converting to sp2 oil cooler was to make more room for a spal fan on both sides.
I already have a SP2 right radiator mounted, which of course has the fan mounts.
I'm just hoping
has another SP2 right spal bracket.
I still use a SP1 left radiator, because of the thermo grounding switch inherent of the SP1.
My left radiator sprung a leak at the bracket (shocking rignt?). I already had a Wibbly bracket and a spal pusher fan, and I opted for a new GPI radiator. At $140 to my door, the price point is hard to ignore. Yes, the radiator needed a little massaging, but it fits very nicely. A couple of the welded tabs weren't spot on for fitment, but the material is just soft enough to bend slightly into place. Also, the 4 tabs for the screen are too thick. A small ignition file worked fine to open up the slots of the screen tabs. Time will tell if it holds up, but so far, so good. Rode a couple hundred miles yesterday and no problems.
This little conversion wasn't really intended. It started out when I replaced my right side radiator with a used OEM SP2 one. That got me thinking about adding a second fan, and using spal fans. But the SP1 oil cooler is in the way for that. So I ended up with this new combination. I think it's probably one of the more sound cooling system mods available at an affordable price for the SP1.
btw, this pusher fan is VERY impressive how much air it moves. Blows the oem fans away!
