650, relocate oil cooler?

After knocking and bending the oil cooler mounts last season I've been contemplating relocating it to make sure something much worse does not happen in the future.

Anyone ever do this?

It looks like there is room to mount it up higher and vertically on the left side of the engine. One woudl just need to make some oil lines and mounts to complete.

Anyone sell or make oil lines or tubes to fit fittings etc??

Are you talking about the Oil Warmer

I know.. it cools but I always thought it was funny how they stuck it behind the pipe.


A friend of mine has an 05 DRZ 650.. it's oil cooler looks like the same one they put on the strom... it is mounted up High on the side....


Maybe that would be bike to look at for inspiration.. Perhaps the hoses would work out ??

Different part number from DL 650 but could be a possible donor ??
