Default Oil Cooler Mount

How is the oil cooler mounted on an 82 Katana 1000?
I know where it goes just not how it's mounted.
Don't see anything on parts diagrams either.


Thanks

Just remember you will have to replace the stock oil filter cover with an EFE cover. This is what the inside of the EFE oil filter cover looks like if you haven't seen one before. The lower right oil flow port has a bridge to divert oil to the cooler and a small 3.1mm gallery to send oil through to the filter housing. If you do fit the EFE cover all will be well with the cooler and using a cooler without an EFE cover will not have damaged anything. However, if you remove the oil cooler it is very important to re-install the standard Kat oil filter cover (non-oil cooler type). If you run an EFE oil filter cover and there is no oil cooler fitted then the engine oil galleries will be starved and very unpleasant things will happen to that beautiful power-plant. I can't seem to post a pic of the efe oil filter cover but if you go to page 4 and look under 82 oil cooler thread you will see an example that I posted some time ago. I hope this helps.

There is another option Earls performance ED 19 oil diversion bung .
You can still use the stock Katana oil filter cover the part does as its name suggests diverts the oil .
I got mine from earls in the UK cost about $20 with shipping even though I'm in So Cal . Earls in Hawthorne CA dont list the part.
www.earls.co.uk look in the special adapters page and remember that outside of the US katanas are known as GSX not GS
