Gen3 sidewinder install

I recently bought a sidewinder for my gen 3 dragbike but it’s hitting the oil cooler and filter mount.
Anybody have experience with this install and how to avoid the interference?

I’d need to completely grind off the outside ear?

Been looking into an oil filter relocation kit, any recommendations on this? I'm sure either remote mounted or mounted the other direction would clear.

u hitting the oil cooler, filter or just everything? adams has a oil adapter filter for the zx14, does away with the oil cooler which u can do without. have to plug couple or radiator lines no problem to do.$129. also filter mount appears shorter. schnitz states thier kit fits all years zx14, zx12, zx10, so should work. call them.

I may have found a solution to the oil filter and cooler problem.
I removed the cooler and pulled the filter mounting bracket off. Looking at I thought, why can’t I just turn this upside down?
I matched it up and the bolts thread in. The oil ports are like a tilted figure 8, which they appear to line up as well.
Anybody see a reason this would not work?

I don't think that oil filter will work very good backwards.

Would it change direction of flow and not actually work or just not line up?

Most spin on oil filters are flow directional, that means that they will not work regardless if it lines up or not.
