Nah that end is easy, 1/4npt, I'm going to see if they can source the fittings that tie into the bike and get some one piece hoses made, I figure its one less point of failure if there's no hose clamps and I won't have to cut the stock oil line.

You may have to be more specific as to the nature of the malfunction. If it's sluggish/stuck, have you tried loosening it with WD40? The nature of the 'broken-ness' will determine the nature of the fix.

Hey Barron, that's one classy-looking oil cooler and installation!!

Gotta read bro. Fully functional, from the pic you can see the tab is broken.

I replied in your thread, but what the hey

I'd go down to the hardware store or parts store and pick up a tube of that Quick Steel. It is soft so you can form it and I would reform the end of the button the way I wanted it. You could even file some little groves in it like the original.

That looks nice. Please let us know if you are able to source the fittings for the Honda hookups.

Looks good. Quite the effort for 13 posts. Cheers for what looks to be another top cooler for the L.

would it be wiser to mount that cooler elsewhere, I would be afraid to come down on a log or boulder and beat the hell out of it, in the case above, save some weight and remove the skid plate, just sayin. maybe under the headlight.

It's true, the xrl dirt setup can do a pretty good job on pavement of taming the tight mountain passes and more challenging back roads. Most riders don't have the practice (or are not crazy enough) to keep up, no matter the bike. My street bike isn't the most performance-minded but I've passed more than a few other bikes in the twisties even two-up. And I ride with a couple of guys that I have to struggle to keep up with. So it's all relative. It's about the fun of the challenge to do the best we can in a given set of circumstances.
The bigger dogs seem better at knowing when to bark and when not to......unfortunately my wife likes them small and noisy

And I agree, its usually the rider more than bike that determines the speed through the paved twisties. I'm pretty quick on my big sportbikes, usually near the front on the group rides. But we had a guy who rode a BMW adventure bike, forget the exact type, fastest guy in the group bar none......including the 600/1000/big sportbikes like mine. He was also an ex racer and ironbutt style endurance competitor.
I use to love following him as long as I could, and watch him ride that narrower rubber/ high riding BMW fast.......awesome to watch. I learned quite a bit

I would use Quicksteel like somebody suggested, its a clay-like consistency until it hardens, then its as tough as anything you'll find. You could shape the button any way you wanted, and paint it when you're done.....prolly would look almost stock at a glance. Plus you can file/sand to fine-tune the shape when hardened. A very simple and easy fix.......the kind I like

Beautiful piece of work Barron...looks tough-as-hell too. But for me personally I still wouldn't feel comfy having it mounted there....maybe just the ocd in me

I'm more afraid of putting a hole in the case than I am about that cooler. There's not a spot on that thing that is less than 1/4 inch thick.
