    Removal and replacement of oil cooler

    Hello Everyone,

    I would like to remove the oil cooler and replace it with the regular stock oil filter cover. Has others done this? I'd like to have your input before proceeding or not.

    Thanks in advance

    I think you should spend some time with Snowbum's article about oil coolers:

    https://bmwmotorcycletech.info/coolers.htm

    Also there are a couple of past threads in the Similar Threads pane at the bottom of the screen.

    You need to replace the pipe that runs down the center of the filter canister too.

    Oil Filter

    The oil filter for a oil cooler equipped bike is different than a non cooler equipped bike. St.

    Part number

    I believe the part number for the pipe Ikcris mentions is 09 11 11 1 263 342 PIPE - L=38MM,

    Don't take my word 100% as I cannot find the part number of the pipe for an oil cooler equipped bike.

    I do know when I took the cooler off of my 78 100RS, I used this number part.

    I would look up the year and model bike the change is being made to and verify the part number. St.

    Looks like this additional page has more info...I notice in the bottom third of the page, Snowbum refers to the -342 pipe.
