Hello all,

I have fitted an XR400 oil cooler to the frame of my 98 XR600. I now need the oil lines as the set-up is different from the XR400. Does anyone fabricate the oil lines? Thanks.

Regards,

Joseph

Don't think he is going to find a NAPA in Malta. NAPA is a large autoparts chain in the US.

Here in the states there are shops that specialize in hoses of all types. They can custom make just about anything with a hose. Try to find one of these hose shops.

This thread uses about 120$ worth of fittings and high end hose.

Tubing I've seen at stores has been english. think I need to hit a hydraulic shop for metric. (need to get the female nuts for the oil cooler. I figure re-use on the 600 end.

go to your local hardware store and pick up a fitting that will thread into the oil cooler and the fitting must have a 90 degree threaded hole on the side that you can thread a barbed fitting into then you slip oil cooler hose over the fitting and use a hose clamp to secure it,on the lines coming off the motor just cut them and slide the hose over them and secure with hose clamps,if you can't find metric fittings tap the oil cooler out to american pipe thread and you will be set.

no reason this set up should cost over $20.00 american,don't waste your money on expensive fittings the oil pressure is so low on those pumps you could hold the hose on with your hand.

Contact Summer's Racing. Good folks. They used to have them all kitted up with the cooler. They might be able to get you some.
