I like that cooler, and the braided lines work well.
It's not falling off, it's an upgrade opportunity.

It's coming together now 8)

I agree, good job with the oil cooler and braided lines :clap:

I also prefer how you've kept the new oil cooler in a similar position to the original. I have never been keen on having the cooler mounted low down right in-line with all and sundry that is thrown up by the front wheel/tyre,

Looking good Mike :thumbup:
I can imagine you are excited and may be a little nervous as well to be near 'push the button' time, I hope all is well,

Ffs, I can't check my tyre pressure with a splinter in my finger never mind what black magic your up to.
Can't wait on your reports once she's all dialed in.
Freckin amazing work.

lol.....now if I could only fix a computer....guess we all have our strengths and weaknesses. :wink:
I'm on a borrowed lap top right now until I can get mine into the shop. So no pics right now but I do have a video of the first fire up.
So yes she runs and no leaks. Now it's time to mount the fairing and go for the break-in run :angel: :lol:
