What is claimed is:
1. A fluid cooling arrangement for a motorcycle comprising:
a fluid cooler including an outer housing and an inner plate, the outer housing including an outer face and an inner face, the imier plate mounted to the inner face of the outer housing, and a continuous fluid passage defined between the inner face and the inner plate, the fluid passage extending between a fluid inlet and a fluid outlet;
an engine with an output shaft;
a transmission with an input shaft;
a primary drive connecting the output shaft to the input shaft, the primary drive including a member for transmitting movement of the output shaft to the input shaft; and
the fluid cooler mounted to the primary drive with the fluid inlet in fluid communication with a source of heated fluid from the engine.

2. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1, wherein the outer face of the outer plate includes a plurality of fins.

3. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1, wherein the outer face of the outer plate is smooth.

4. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1, wherein the heated fluid is lubricating oil circulated through the engine.

5. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1 , wherein the fluid inlet is located on a lower surface of the outer plate.

6. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1, wherein the fluid outlet is located on a lower surface of the outer plate.

7. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1 , wherein the fluid inlet is located on an inner face of the inner plate

8. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 7, wherein fluid communication between the inlet and the source of heated fluid is via a hose extending through the member of the primary drive.

9. The fluid cooling arrangement of claim 1, wherein the fluid outlet is located on an inner face of the inner plate.

10. An oil cooler for a motorcycle comprising:
an assembly including an outer housing having an inner face and an outer face, and an inner plate mounted to the inner face of the outer housing;
a plurality of fluid passages between the inner plate and the inner face defining a continuous oil path from an oil inlet to an oil outlet;
the outer housing and inner plate assembly adapted for mounting to an outer portion of a primary drive of a motorcycle.

11. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the outer face of the outer plate includes a plurality of fins.

12. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the outer face of the outer plate is smooth.

13. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the oil inlet is located on a lower surface of the outer plate.

14. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the oil outlet is located on a lower surface of the outer plate.

15. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the oil inlet is located on an inner face of the inner plate

16. The oil cooler of claim 10, wherein the oil outlet is located on an inner face of the inner plate.

17. A method of mounting an oil cooler to a motorcycle comprising:
providing a motorcycle with an engine including an output shaft, a transmission with an input shaft, and a primary drive connecting the output shaft to the input shaft, the primary drive including a member for transmitting movement of the output shaft to the input shaft;
mounting an inner plate to an inner face of an outer housing to form an oil cooler assembly, the oil cooler assembly including a plurality of oil passages between the inner plate and the inner face for routing oil from an oil inlet to an oil outlet;

attaching the oil cooler assembly to an outer portion of the primary drive with the oil cooler assembly positioned as a member guard;
connecting the fluid inlet of the cooler assembly with a source of heated oil from the engine.
