    can you bypass the output cover on a 2007 ultra

    can you bypass the output cover and run cooling line directly to oil cooler?

    the reason why I want to bypass is the hose stem that comes out of the output cover to oil cooler has rioted off.

    I ordered a new cover then I read the manual on how to remove the coupler pulley and saw you have to remove the motor and buy three different special tools from Kawasaki.

    has anyone bypassed with out a problem?

    Drill and tap the cover and put a regular brass/stainless fitting in there

    thanks Mike I was thinking the same thing hoping that the housing wasn't too corroded and it would hold up to drilling it and tapping.


    I can't see if the output cover feeds the block with cooling water or if that just acts like a coupler.

    would you know if bypassing is a option if the fitting doesn't hold up?

    I guess ill try and tap that and hope there is enough meat left to hold a fitting. I'm just trying to do this in any way possible that I don't have to pull motor.
    thanks

    I know it's so not a step you want to take, but if the tap procedure doesn't work out then pulling the motor isn't really that bad. I have it down to a few hours, with the swingset and ATV winch to assist..

    How did you ever make out on this? I noticed on my 08 15F the top cooling nipple is starting to corrode away. In fact the output coupler is no longer available as a part. I just looked at a parts diagram for new models and it look like it's being replaced by a different part with removable nipples.

    I probably have to do something soon.
