    Type 14 Intercooler

    Has anyone used and fabricated a Type 14 intercooler to fit on a FZR? I'm sure I could use the search function, but I'm lazy... I'm worried about space, and fitment with the reverse still intact.

    Yes, I have a TIG welder...

    I have used the type 13 which is smaller but the same principle could be used.

    Wow, speedjunky, that bracket mounting system looks very solid!

    A solid super rigid mount bracket will not absorb any vibration, and will promote cracking of the mount/cooler over time, especially using aluminum. I see a few of the JD coolers have cracked the mount from this. Allowing a small amount of flex as the turnbuckles do, or using rubber vibration dampners as the OEM cooler does will give longer mount life. Remember the cooler is much heavier when full of water also.

    Rubber dampners are a great idea and I was trying to incorporate the OEM dampner into a modded JD ic

    The stock mount was used so the stock shock absorbers were used plus I used a rubber pad between the IC and aluminum plate. The bracket has done good so far at almost 20 hrs.

    Good deal. The rubber will make all the difference.
