header crosspipe with external oil filter fitment question

hey all,
I installed one of these (Oil pan intermediate ring 25 mm with external oil filter) on my R100 and it was questionable to me if the header with crosspipe would fit.

It does with about 1cm to spare between the header crosspipe and the filter.

Anyone use these? Is heat from the exhaust a concern in close proximity to the filter? Is it designed to use a crosspipe?

It's not a very popular modification. I've seen the part you have. Riders complain that they are worried the oil filter will be damaged because it is sticking out. But I've never heard of one that broke. Your concern about the oil getting heated may be valid.

How does the oil get into and out of the filter? Is it plumbed to the original oil filter parts?

Pics would be nice.

I take it this is what he has



Looks like you remove the canister to fit it, I like the idea of it, the airhead oil
filter is a bit of a pita, a lot of jap bikes have the filter in behind the headers
and it doesn't cause a problem

If you are worried about heat, a little insulating wrap around the crossover pipe in that area.

Amen. Heat wrap on the crossover and call it good.

You could also tap a little relief in the crossover pipe for clearance.

Seriously?

You guys think the stock internal filter runs any cooler than the exposed one sitting below a cross pipe? (of course they don't...) That crossover pipe's not going to heat up the filter, it's above it and heat rises.

That outer filter will stay much cooler no matter what, being out there in the breeze.

Agreed I wouldnt loose a wink of sleep over it and I think it's a nice mod. I have no idea how well it works but I definately like it for a road bike. For a GS not so much.

be carefull

I had a Ducati once that had an oil filter that protruded just a bit below the motor (as in the photo). One day I was parking and jumped a curb to get into the spot. I must not have realized that I had bottomed out and scraped the filter a bit but when I came out after breakfast all my oil was in a puddle beneath the bike.
