Some oil line kits only replace a section of the original hose. If your kit has red jubilee clip covers on each of the hoses then it replaces a section of the original hose. This is due to the fact that the original hoses use specialist flange adaptors to connect the cooler to the engine. In these instances a section of the original metal tube needs to be cut away leaving two metal pipes - one from the cooler and one from the engine. the gap that has been left by this action is then replaced by pushing each end of our high performance stainless steel braided oil line onto each metal pipe and secured by tightening the jubilee clip as shown below in Figure 2:
Mounting Instructions For HEL Performance Cooler Kits
You will find that our oil coolers have a mounting tab located at each of the eight corners of the oil cooler. If you choose to mount the cooler using these tabs please make sure that:
The tabs do not take the weight of the cooler and that they are only used as a way of securing the cooler to the brackets.
They are used in a way that does not distort the cooler.
The cooler is rubber mounted using the mounting rings supplied in accordance with the diagram.
The cooler is spaced away from the frame by a minimum of 2rnrn. No part of the cooler matrix should be in contact with the motorcycle frame.
Our oil cooler brackets have been specially designed and CNC machined to allow them to fit several different models of motorcycle. They will normally be supplied ready to fit although on some models the lower mounting lugs will need to be modified as per the following cutting pattern to fit GSXR1100'S, GSXR750'S, GSF600 Bandits and GSF1200 Bandits.
The lower bracket is shown below w it h the location lugs closest to you as you are looking at the back of the bracket i.e. with cutting marks visible:
