    Yammy 1.8l Oil Cooler Bolts

    Has anyone had their oil cooler bolt-heads (mainly the ones across the bottom) shear their heads off? resulting in oil loss into the hull?

    Theres been a few cases ive heard of. wondering how big the issue is?

    Cheers team

    Yes. At about 10 hours I had one shear off on the VXR. The way I found out about it was when I was changing the Oil Filter I noticed a Bolt Head was gone. I did not have any seepage of oil due to this though . . . . it may have been off for a few rides (I don't know). The Dealer replaced it and it has been fine ever since; many many rides since then.

    Point me in the right direction and I will check my VXS skis.

    Get your hand underneath the oil filter in that area, and you can feel the oil cooler bolts that way . . . there's about 9 total Bolts if I remember correctly. Be careful or put a glove on as there are some "sharp" gaskets that overhang a bit in that general area. JB
