    A lot of people went with the R&D kit and it worked as advertised....keeping things real cool but gas in oil seemed to be a byproduct of this kit. Some people rerouted the lines a bit to keep the oil hotter and got rid of the gas in oil.

    The R&D engine/intercooler cooling kit has an optional oil cooler circuit. If you ride in cold water you could get some GIO issues due to over cooling the oil. What I did on my ski is put a ball valve to close off this optional feature. I've never had an issue.
    For those that are concerned with over cooling the oil they don't have to install the optional oil cooler line.

    Jerry, and what is your definition of "cold water"?

    I have not yet. Jerry, don't know if you have time but I'm an idiot and don't know which line goes to the oil cooler. Any pics? I would love to not have to change the oil so often.

    I would say anything cooler than 75 degree water temp may cause some problems.

    My water temp here in the summer is 92 degrees. It's like bath water.
