    Got tired of the oil leak from the 6-row coolers. Got a used 8-row (08+) but figured out the connections are different, both on the cooler and the engine. So using the 08+ oil lines was out of the question as the hard parts also curved differently for the redesigned oil pump system in the later models. I set out to find some sort of fittings/adapters.

    Off to Ace! I took a spare stock cooler to match the SAE fitting and the removable fittings from the 8-row to match up that side.

    They have huge racks of SAE fittings, so finding a 3/8" Male SAE 45 flare was very easy. The cooler side of the fitting needed to be 9/16-18 thread, as found in the bolt/nut section of the store. Unfortunately they didn't have ANY brass fittings that were the correct thread. I ended up chancing it and grabbed a proper flare with a 1/4-NPT on the other side. It threads in a little loose, but the next size up was too large.

    Went home, and noticed the stock 8-row fittings have an o-ring. No worries, grabbed my Dremel and eliminated the last row of threads...perfect. Snugged everything together, fits nice, then cranked down and sealed it all together. 300 miles later (or so) and not a single drop of oil. Washed the bike, I'm happy now.
