Oil cooler
For the sake of vanity (and for no other reason), I'd like to toss the oil cooler on my CB, but I imagine it's a bad idea. I understand Honda had issues controlling cylinder head temps and my removing the oil cooler would likely make things worse. Still, to me, it uglies up the bike. Has anyone tried this and lived to tell about it?

That doesn't even begin to sound like a good idea.

If you come to a fork in the road, take it!

Any other ideas you come up with have got to be better than this one.

Do it! I want to see how long your bikes lasts before the engine overheats and melts something important! ROFL

Don't do it. There are some bikes you can get away with this on (apparently the Ducati Sport Classic guys do it) but this probably isn't one of them.

Have some fun first, like shredding your tyres in massive burn outs or some such.

Don't ride safe. It's boring.

There are some things you just shouldn't do, and this is one of them.

Reminds me of the bloke that shredded his tyres on Thursday night at the GP at PI last year but had the foresight to have a new set ready at the local bike shop on the Island to be fitted on Friday.
