    Have a question on installing a oil cooler. On A 96a engine I've been told you can use the two plugs on the leading edge of the oil filter mount, just to the left of the oil filter as you look at it, to plumb a oil cooler, but it don't look like there's much room to miss the down tube of the frame. Is it possible to do it this way, if so what size are those plugs??? Appreciate any input!!

    Thanks

    I was told those are just where they drilled in the manufacturing process.

    Thanks for the reply. Looks like it might be easier to just buy an adapter and quite trying to do it the the cheap way!!!

    On my 09 FLHR, I use the Jagg 6 row Premium oil cooler, mounted on my left down-tubes, using the Behind the filter adaptor with thermostat... Just Right.

    Well worth the investment.
    No worries about WHEN the cooler works OR needs to work. looks good also.

    Black Oil Lines hardly noticed from below the filter to the cooler.

    Even Here in Warm Az. out of my garage, the oil in the bike is COOL and I get 55+ lbs oil pressure until it is warmed. I would never want the oil being cooled when Not Needed.

    That thermostat is a good device even for HOT Az.
    You Know,,,,COOL mornings and evenings, never a problem wondering IF.

    Do yourself a great favor, and get an anti-rotation bracket when you get the cooler adapter. You'll thank me every time you change your oil thereafter.

    Enjoy,
