    I just want to check in as another happy GSMARK customer. I am an anal retentive mechanical engineer, and the cooler as well as instructions were perfect. The cooler was shipped the day I made payment, and was packed well enough to shipped across the Sahara by camel. I made only one small change in the installation. I put a 90 degree brass fitting in one of the rubber hoses because I could not get a perfectly smooth curve; the hose was flattening slightly. This fitting will reduce the oil slow slightly due to friction, but so would the hose flattening. I also have a SS sweep elbow fitting (wide radius) but it interferes with the hose bracket. I might try it on the next oil change. If I do, I will post photos.

    I purchased the cooler because I am old and ride slow. I found my XR overheating when riding steep trails in hot weather because I am not fast enough to get good air flow around the engine.

    i have an 84 xl350r from all the pictures the engine cases look similar. I was wondering if the oil cooler would fit the 350?

    Sorry for the late reply.
    I am pretty sure that the left case is different.
    I have not been able to get my hands on a XR350 or XL350R. I would love to make for your bike.
    I am sorry to say that I don't know for sure if it would fit.
    Ride safe :ricky

    It is possible but not so easy like in 600, 650. The succesor of XL350R were XLX350 and NX350 Sahara. They have the same engine and oil coolers (NX also has electric starter).
    How they did it? Other oil filter cover. You have to buy one or do by youserl: drill two holes in the lid to get out the oil and seal original line. :)
    But XL has a wet sump, with no return valve. I think, it might be nececary to install one. (??) It would be useful also a bypass valve for driving in cold weather.
    I'm gonna do this upgrade with a ATV oil cooler.
    PS. I'm not shure what oil pumps have XLX and NX. XL has different (double) than XR350'83 (single).

    PS2: I'm going to do also two oil lines to the valve cover. The second input would be on the left side of the cover, just to the left of the camshaft bearing. This would improve lubrication of the left side of the head. The head is lubricated only by the holes in the camshaft. I think it's weak side od this structure, I mean the head in all RFVCs.

    I be interested in one of these coolers for my XL350R. I'm sure there's a way to make it work!

    There is easier way. U can put some small cooler from scooter 125ccm to the left side of cylinder XL350 and just plug instead of oil hose between engine and head.
