I'm not a pro, but there is no way I would completely remove my oil cooler. Isn't there something you can replace it with that would fit everything in? Oil is a big part of the cooling..

I wouldn't, an oil coolers not about looks its there for a purpose.
Id get an exhaust that fits.
Up to you though, maybe its really cold where you live and your engine would survive high oil temps.
Plenty of aircooled bikes dont have oil coolers but start hotting up say a 750/4 or an XS650 or a z900 and what did we add?
Yeah right, oil coolers....and a Vic motor surely
Out-Grunts any of those two put together, possibly all three!
Its there for a reason not just to spoil/enhance the looks of the bike.

If you need to remove the stock oil cooler, try looking at the conquest customs cooler for steel frame bikes. It looks pretty badass and should work with your choice of exhaust.

The oil cooler on the Vic motor is an integral part of the engine's cooling/oiling system. It's not a crankcase oil cooler. Oil travels from the crankcase to be cooled by the cooler before being fed into the heads from the top down to cool them as well. It is vital to the engine design. You wouldn't take the radiator out of your car, you shouldn't try to remove the oil cooler from your Vic.
