I'm looking for a cold weather cover.
Drag Specialities used to sell one. I've run oil coolers for years with no thermostat's and used a cover for each one when temps dropped.

Now I just get my wife to make me one. She sews and they are very easy to make.

Do you really need a cover? Wouldn't that impede the cooling process???? Air is meant to go over fins to cool the oil!!! If you place a cover over it you impede air flow over the fins????

The idea of the cover is to keep the air from flowing over the cooler. In effect, it reduces the ability of the cooler to cool down the oil. That's the whole idea if you're riding in low temps.
