INSTALLATION 1. See Figure 1. Install the oil cooler (2) to the frame with three clamps (4), three socket head screws (1), three nuts (5) and six washers (3) from the kit. Orient the clamps flat side forward and on the forward side of the oil cooler. Tighten the three oil cooler mounting screws to 96-120 in- lbs (10.9-13.5 Nm) . 2. See Figure 2. Remove the spin-on oil filter and oil filter adapter (1) from oil filter mount location. Clean the oil filter mounting area thoroughly. Discard oil filter and adapter. 1 3 4 4 4 3 5 2 is03387 1.

Oil Cooler Clamp Installation NOTE The oil cooler adapter assembly has two flanges protruding out of the back side. The flanges must be installed toward the oil filter mounting location and through the oil adapter gasket. 3. See Figure 3. From the kit, install the oil cooler adapter gasket (3) onto the oil cooler adapter assembly (1). The oil cooler adapter assembly flanges should be aligned so it is installed into the oil adapter cooler gasket cutout as shown. NOTE Due to the locating flanges, the oil cooler adapter assembly and gasket will only install properly in one position on the oil filter mounting surface. 4. See Figure 3. Install the oil cooler adapter assembly and gasket onto the oil filter mounting surface of the engine with the mounting fitting (2). Ensure adapter locates properly in the mounting surface. Ensure the raised lip of the mounting fitting faces the adapter assembly. Tighten mounting fitting to 12-16 ft-lbs (16.3-21.7 Nm) .NOTE Slide hose clamps from the kit onto the hoses prior to installa- tion. 1 2 is00754 1. Oil filter adapter 2.

See Figure 5. Obtain the left side cooler hose (4) and right side cooler hose (5) from kit. Follow the markings on hoses to connect onto the oil cooler and oil cooler adapter, as shown. 6. Fasten hoses to oil cooler adapter and oil cooler with worm drive clamps (6). Tighten clamps to 8.0 in-lbs (0.9 Nm) . 7. Lubricate a new oil filter’s seal with new engine oil. Thread filter on until seal touches mounting surface, then turn an additional 1/2 to 3/4 turn. NOTE Position the clamps to avoid interference with oil filter installation. Check that hose routing is clear of the oil filter and sharp edges. The hoses must be free of bends or kinks that could obstruct oil flow. 8. Ensure all cables and harnesses are clear of the oil cooler adapter, in order to prevent wear. 9. Thoroughly clean the oil cooler of all dirt, grease and wax with isopropyl alcohol. Use the alcohol to clean the chrome oil cooler cover as needed. Allow to dry. is00745 Figure 4. Apply Sealant Inside Chrome Cover 10. See Figure 4. Apply sealant to the inside of the chrome cover as shown, at the upper and lower corners. NOTES Be careful to avoid getting sealant on the oil cooler cooling fins. Do not operate the motorcycle for 24 hours to allow the sealant to fully cure. 11. Slip the cover over the oil cooler. Remove any excess sealant from the front and back of the oil cooler. Hold the cover firmly in place for one minute. System Flow Test 2005 & Later Models or Models with Later Style Dipsticks Oil level cannot be accurately measured on a cold engine. For pre-ride inspection, with motorcycle leaning on jiffy stand on level ground, oil should register on dipstick between arrows when engine is cold. Do not add oil to bring the level to the FULL mark on a COLD engine. (00185a) 2004 & Earlier Models

Engine Oil Replacement • Replace the engine oil after the first 50 miles or 1 hour with 5w50, 10w50 or 15W50 synthetic engine oil. Then replace again every 1,500 miles or 1 each year. Check oil level every 500 miles, add oil if needed. Changing the Engine Oil (1).Warm up the engine for a few minutes. (2).Stop the engine. (3). Place scooter on center stand. (4).Place an oil pan under the engine and remove the dipstick. (5).Remove the drain plug and drain the oil. Reach in drain hole, pull out filter clean and reinstall, after all oil drains out. (6).Reinstall drain plug. (7). Fill the engine with oil until the level is in the designated area on the dipstick. (8).Start the engine and check for oil leaks. If a leak is found stop the engine immediately and look for cause. Rear Wheel Oil Replacement • Replace the gear oil after the first 500 miles with 5W/50 synthetic engine oil. Replace the gear oil again every 4 months or every 2000 miles. • Replacing the Gear Oil (1).Put the scooter on the center stand (please see photo below) . (2).Place an oil pan under the gear case (please see photo below) . (3).Remove the oil filler bolt and the drain plug to drain the oil (please see photo below) . (4).Reinstall and tighten the drain plug. (5).Fill the gear case with oil (please see photo below) . (6).Reinstall the oil filler bolt. (7).Check for oil leakage. Cleaning Air Cleaner Be sure to check the air cleaner regularly. (1).Place the scooter on the center stand. (2).Unscrew and remove the left side panel. (3).Remove the air cleaner cover by removing the screws. (4).Take out the air cleaner by removing the screws. (5).Remove the air cleaner element and wash it gently, but thoroughly in solvent. Replace if damaged. (6).Squeeze out the excess solvent and dry it. (7).Apply oil to the entire surface of the air cleaner and squeeze out the excess oil. It should be damp but not dripping.

The Norton filter adapter is then bolted to the rear piece, oil hoses are added, an oil filter is screwed into place, and the assembly is offered to the bike. With the bike supported by straps up on a lift, it will be easy to loosely mount the front clamp section in place and slide the whole assembly up the frame tube. In order to miss the center stand, the filter will need to be as high as possible without the grease nipple striking the top of the adapter. As it ends up, there is “sweet spot” where both the nipple and the stand miss the oil filter by about an 1/8 inch. Tighten the mount down when you find that place. I found that the Norton filter adapter is best plumbed using 5/16 ID black neoprene fuel hose. The spigots on the adapter are 3/8 inch, but it is better to stretch the hose over these that to use easier fitting 3/8 ID hose and then try to shrink it onto the Triumph’s smaller metal oil lines. There will simply be fewer oil leaks using the smaller hose. Be sure that you plumb the filter into the oil line that returns engine oil back to the oil tank. The Triumph oil pump cannot be counted on to create enough vacuum to suction highly viscous motor oil through a very fine filter during cool temperatures. Trying to place the filter on the oil line feeding the engine will quickly result in massive engine damage. It is always better to have the oil pump pushing oil through the filter, and the only way to have RF Whatley, Suwanee, GA 5 Jan 2008 that is to use the return oil line. On all “unit-construction” Triumph engines, the rear-most oil port is the engine oil return. Other Notes • It is generally considered that adding an oil filter will at least quadruple the life of a British motorcycle engine. These motors, which were for the most part perfected in the 1950′s, were designed to run on the older non-detergent oils. In the original design, the oil tank was the oil filter since all particulate debris in the oil settled to the bottom of the oil tank as sediment. All modern engine oils are high-detergent and tend to inhibit the formation of sediment. Therefore most of the fine abrasive in the engine oil continues to circulate unless a filter is added.
