Default Front Fender, Oil cooler and 106ci

Hi all,

do you think there would be any issues with air flow to the oil cooler if I fitted a Kingpin front fender to my 2013 106 where the oil cooler is low at the front?

I've seen pictures with oil coolers on KPs up high above the fender level, I'm guessing to get more air flow.

Last thing I want is to cook my engine.

I love the smell of Freedom in the morning... smells... smells like... Victory!

I don't think so. My friends 09 Kingpin has its oil cooler in the same spot as your 106. I think they moved them down in 2008

Yeah would love a Kingpin front fender for my Vegas.
Keep a lot of the dirt and crap off the front of the bike, risk of a stone through the oil cooler etc.

Hi MB, yeah that's the main reason I'm doing it. Having seen the pictures of the Torque Tubes covered after a wet dirty road. Mind you I'm a fair weather rider. My scoot has never been wet in it's life and don't plan on it now.

Yeah, sook, wanker, sorft cork etc.

Torquetubes filters are a piece of piss to clean anyway.

Riding at 65 mph and 10 C= 4C. Hyperthermia is a real danger IMO. Done some winter backpacking but had a nice comfy down bag to pass out, er, I mean sleep in.
