Begin by removing the front fascia and front skid plate on the vehicle as shown in figure 1. Save the fasteners as they will be used later to re-install the front fascia and skid plate. 2. Remove the 8mm bolts on both sides located inside the front tires and on the ends of two horizontal tubes on the front tube frame as shown in figure 2. 3. Place the mounting plate (A1) inside the front tube frame. The tabs with the slotted holes facing down. The slotted tabs should align where the
two 8mm bolts were removed in step 2. Reinstall these two bolts at this time thighten to just fingertight. Install the two 1/4-20 u-bolts (B3) and locking hex nuts (B1) and flat washers (B7) at thism time see figure 3, do not tighten down at this time. so the plate can be adjusted for position see figure 2. 4. Place the rear support bracket (A4) into position
and attach with the two 5/16-18 x 3/4 hex cap screws (B6), flat washer (B5) and locking nut (B4). Adjust the position of the support bracket so that it comes in contact with the frame tubes and tighten the fasteners see figures 3 and 4.
Make sure the support bracket maintains contact with the rear frame tubes and tighten down the two front 8mm mounting bolts. Tighten the bolts to a recommended torque of 12 ft-lb (17 N-m). 5. Attach the fairlead bracket support (A2) to the front frame tubes see figure 5. The support bracket attaches behind the front tubes. Space the bracket away from the tubes using the spacer brackets (A3). Attach the brackets using the 1/4- 20 u-bolts (B2), lock nuts (B1) and flat washers (B7). Before tightening the u-bolts make sure the bracket is in the correct position by fitting the front
fasica into postion and checking location. Tighten the nuts to a recommended torque of 7 ft-lb (10 N-m). NOTE: If this kit is being installed on a 00 to 03 Honda the wider fairlead bracket (A2) will need to be used. This will require the use of the
wider u-bolts (B3). The spacer brkts (A3) will not be required when installing the wider fairlead brkt

Cobra JR/ OI Radiator with Louvers Replacement


Filed Under (Cobra) by admin on 10-11-2010

The 2009 model year radiator for Cobra JR (also remaining OI ) model will be FCCJ0004 which now has provisions for louvers. On the 2009 models these louvers also rely on a feature on the frame down-tube for mounting the plastic louvers. Older models do not have these features on the frame and so it is not possible to utilize the louver mounts on the radiator. Customers with older models JR/CM or OI/P3/PW3 needing a replacement radiator for ECMU0061 or ECMU0225 will be sold a radiator kit FKMU0001 which includes the new style radiator, FCCJ0004C (with louver mounting tabs removed), and all mounting hardware. This will allow the mounting of the new style radiator onto these products without mounting the louvers. As the 2009 frame is now the service replacement frame for JR/CM & OI/PW3/P3 models from 2004 – 2008, the louvers are able to mount on all older models JR/CM & OI/PW3/P3 that have the appropriate mounting provisions. Welding on the highly stressed down-tube frame member is not recommended by Cobra because it can cause premature structural failure to the frame and possible injury to the rider.
