oil cooler mod (fourtrax)

There is a guy wanting to sell a 400 ex oil cooler. I have read online that people put oil coolers on there 300s. I would install it in a simialar spot to a 450 foreman. it comes with lines. But where do you tap into the oil system.

I know this is not a must mod but its nice to have the extra insuance. and he only want $20 for it. so it wouldnt be to expensive.

Thank you in advance
Mark

I've heard of people cutting the external oil line that runs from the oil filter up to the head cover and hooking the oil cooler lines to that line.

There's also a thread over on HL where someone drilled and tapped the oil filter cover and installed fittings for the lines.

ya i found that. the easy way is to cut the external lines like you said. Clamp on some hoses and top the oil off. may have to mount the oil cooler up and down not left and right. may even put in a fan

You might be able to take a flaring tool and flare the end of the lines just a little, just enough to clamp the line over so it won't slip off.
