Changes on oil circuit by adding an oil radiator and an other oil pump.
It's possible to "upgrade" a SC15 (or SC16) by replacing the single pump with a double one with the corresponding oil pan from an SC19 (or SC20).
After you will have to adapt an oil radiator from a SC19 or from an other motorbike.

In the oil housing:
Different type of oil pan:
On the left, the one with the holes to plug an oil radiator, and on the right the one without the holes.

On the SC15, the space taken by the rocker arm dind't allow the cap bearings to tighten the camshaft on 360° :
Changes on the water circuit. The second radiator is in the head light fairing on the F, in the cowl on the FII (like the VF750F).
