Don't even want to know how you hit a wild hog.

Looks like it is part number: 16620-27G00 for the bracket on a 04-11 Wee. Can you bend or hammer it back into shape? If Ma Suzuki doesn't have one, you may have to try on-line if no one here has one laying around.

I have used Oneida Suzuki, Ron Ayers, and MR Cycles with good luck; they or others may have one in stock.

I have read about "oil-cooler relocation" kits.... perhaps this would be an option for you.

Personally, if the bracket is only bent and the oil-cooler is still functional, I would consider simply leaving it. (proud battle-scar

Just the bracket? Bend it back. But how in hell can you get a hog between the forks and the oil cooler? It must have been a tiny piglet if you ran over it and did not dump.

You sure it wasn't an armadillo?

Wild hog? Wow! They made a movie about that a few years ago. Near the end, they all got hit a bunch. Glad you survived.

Default Hog

Any pork chops in the fereezer? On a more serious side, that relocation kit from Touratech looks like something I would like to try. It moves the cooler out from behind the exhaust pipe.
