Default Reduce engine heat

Have a 09 Glide Classic 96"

Any ideas on cooling it down ?

I know there are oil coolers you can get, but they don't help much when you're stopped in traffic... unless you get the ones with a fan
and they are expensive.

Wondering if anyone came up with a creative alternative idea ?

For instance I was wondering if you could add and mount an additional oil can in the system, even if you only got an extra qt in there
that should help some ??

How about the heat wrap around the exhaust pipes, does that at least help keep the driver cooler ?

Any thoughts or other ideas ?

Mate , I rode my 08 softail, with the missus on the back and full of luggage through the Mojave desert and it was 55c/131f......the bike ran fine but the missus didn't travel so well.....so I wouldn't worry to much about it, just use a good quality oil and change it regularly.

Default Engine vibration ??

Have 2009 Electra Glide Classic 96 CI

I notice, barley/slightly, a vibration, around 2500/3000 rpms...
Just wondering if this is somewhat normal.

I notice it going thru the gears.... so I don't think it's the Primary or gears...

Like I said barely noticeable. So I;m thinking it a feature....

I have 1999 Softail Evo, and the Evo's definitely have a vib. at certain rpm, just a feature of those.
The EVO is much more noticeable than the TC.

So I was wondering if it was the same with the TC.

G'day mate , your Electra glide has a rubber mounted motor . so if your worried check those mount's The 09 had a new designed frame so the vibration was less and the handling was better than previous model's If the vibration is only minor I wouldn't be worrying about it It's just a Harley thang
