Started playing with it yesterday afternoon. It won't work up side down as I planned. Too big. The top bolt was no problem but the bottom ones I had to make a bracket for. I have some 6.37mm aluminum flat bar stock, so I used that. This stuff is HARD. I;ll have to go flexable lines to criss/cross under it, then behind the steering head, along the back bone tubes, then down between the 2-3 intake boots. 3/8 line all the way. I have a line connecting the inlets to keep out dirt for now. Looking for a 3/8 bypass valve. Should be ready for summer. B)
Looking at the pics, I need to do some polishing. :(

This is my old cooler. You can see why I didn't use it.

No eBay APP ID and/or Cert ID defined in Kunena configurationNow this would be ideal.

Still trying to catch my breath after seeing the price of that IMPROVED Racing thermostat. :ohmy:

Those "Mocal" thermostats have been around a while and I think, sold under more than one name. Price is MUCH better obviously.

You're right. Been looking at three way valves. That one for $37 is doable. Ed, do you know off hand what size fittings are on the cooler? I'd like to have larger inlets.

Those 3/8ths couplings are a little too small.
Remember KZ's are high volume - low pressure so 1/2 inch /13mm is the size you need or you will have trouble.
That bypass is intended for higher pressure systems.

Sorry Steve, I don't know the flare size. All I know is they are quite large.

No eBay APP ID and/or Cert ID defined in Kunena configurationI've got it worked out. The old cooler had 1/2" inlets. I have some fittings off a FI fuel pressure regulator that will fit. I can drill them out and fit 1/2" barbs on them. These are the fittings I plan on getting off eBay. I was thinking the same thing. 3/8" is too small.

The fittings I had before were for 1/2".
