W/ IMS Tank

All, I recently installed this Oil Cooler and a new IMS 4.0 tank at the same time and had NO issues, except I did have to share the left tank support mount. I rode with my new stuff in West Texas and it worked great!

Great product Mark!

Thanks,

XR650L...Mack

Do you guys think that I should take out the exhaust removal step in the instructions? Everybody that has done it my way is going to want to kill me... depending on your answer.

Thanks again guys!
Mark

Not yet, Mark. I have been trying to find a 90 degree fitting to replace the tube I made. I don't have the thread size in front of me to tell you what it is.
M16 X 1 or M16 x 1.5??? I wrote it down and can't find it.
I had a buyer here look for one and he was having trouble. If I ever find one, will let you know.

Well I have my cooler installed and running on my XR600. It's a beautifully made little thing. Apologies Mark for bolting it to such a ratty looking XR!

It seems to stand a bit further out than it would on an XRL.

EDIT: F*** YOU PHOTOBUCKET! My pic is right side up on the iphone, and uploads upside down. Then the photobucket online editor puts them right side up, but if I link to them from outside they're upside down again!


When I have some time I will cut the spacers down a fraction to try and bring it inboard a little, but there isn't much clearance on the other side of the actualy oil cooler body.

It works pretty well - I am getting temps about 50-60ºF less than I was before after long highway slogs and such, although ambient temps have dropped a few degrees recently and I am now running a different carb.

I intend to keep the small section of hard oil pipe that I cut out in my spares pack on the bike incase something goes wrong - I should be able to plug the two oil hoses back together in the event of a leak.

Install log, Honda NX650, EU-spec frame, roughly identical to US-spec NX frame:

First impression is that everything will bolt right on

The frame bolt for the cross-brace piece of Al is 1/2 an inch higher
- fixed problem by drilling two extra holes in A-shaped support

Radiator shroud no longer lines up
- replaced "beautiful" shroud with a spatula-like shroud
- ground spatula-shroud to fit the wrong-way around and not hit the frame near the bottom
- drilled cross-brace to fit the holes on the spatula-shroud
- test-install

Done. No pics as I didn't have the camera on me. Stay tuned :)



Mark, I'll be returning the nice-looking curved shroud just in case you want it for another customer. I had no idea how useful the "extras" would be :)

So I finally got around to installing my cooler. Everything was going well until I installed the two bolts that hold the cooler itself to the support arm. I had tightened the top bolt to roughly 5 Nm when spin spin spin. The lock nut had not even flattened!
The instructions do say not to overtighten, but I can only assume mine was especially weak. I am usually not surprised when I strip things. This time I was! The only thing holding it together is a very small (1mm?) collar of aluminum. I had it welded back, threw some paint on it, and finished the install predictably.


The kit is great, and, as previously mentioned, the instructions are impressive. We're finally getting some rain here, so while I fired her up to check for leaks, I haven't taken her out. Thanks again, Mark.

Thank you for the update.
I am sorry that you had to go through this.
I will look into this matter a little further.
