In my 10 year plus life behind a parts counter I can never remember ordering an oil cooler for any model of RT.  So unless you intend to chase cars down gravel roads I can't see the point.  To a slightly lesser extent headlight covers are in the same category although I did fit one to a 1600 as the headlight on them are just short of £1000. All it ever did though was get covered in dead bugs on the inside being a nightmare to clean. Same thing can happen with radiator guards .

Thanks for the replies gents, RTman10 I'm not one to argue with the voice of experience, so I'll save my money & time and not bother with either. Cheers Mick
