Does anyone know where I can get an adapter to mount an oil cooler to my 82 1100? I have an oil cooler already but no way to mount the adapter between the engine and the oil filter. Thanks:praying:

IIRC: The CB750s and other Hondas use the same oil filter assy. (similar anyway) to the 4 banger Wings, and those bikes had oil coolers made by many aftermarket companies. I would think that one of those addapeters should be easy to fit, but due to the location of the lines you might have to use elbows to route the hoses away from the engine. Maybe ebay to locate one?

That said, why do you think you need an oil cooler, or is it just that you 'want' one?

going to use adapter to supply heated oil to the intake manifold for heat.
I have that same setup on my old '83 Aspencade. I bought the bike that way, so I can't tell you where it came from.

On my Interstate I was planning to heat the manifold with water. I found the manifold and water pump cover from a '85 GL1200 LTD, which has hose nipples. There must be something on the LTD or SEi engine that needed heated water.

...as an example.

Since I bought the GL1500, projects like this got put on hold, but I may do it someday. I don't know 100% they fit, but they sure looked the same.

And the 1500s already have the coolant to the carb.s.

I was thinking coolant would be better than oil too.
