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?
after some time messing around and configuring things, I got the oil filter mount bolted up. The front cooler mount bolt still contacts a bit. I'm thinking about doing a oil cooler block off with the 12 'o'clock and 7 'o clock positions in place and the 3 o'clock position cut off and tig welded up so it doesn't leak. I don't think I can grind enough material off to still be able to use the 3 o'clock mounting position.
Next problem, is the radiator. I'm looking for a decent alternative to cutting my radiator in half. I've taken measurements from a busa rad, which is shorter but too wide. Any suggestions here?
The curve of the OE radiator hits the exhaust header.
