    I believe the 3 row has tapped mount holes that are horizontal, while the 5 row has bolts that go vertically. Check the mount to ensure it has the correct orientation.

    .

    Assuming you are referring to the optional "Frame Bracket" Mount ?

    If so...... it will fit same as 3 row.. but, it hangs down a little lower, so you may need to trim the inner panels a little, or set them a little farther apart to make room.

    HR: In the other thread about the Kitaco 3 vs 5 row oil cooler from 2015 you stated that in order to run the frame mount for the oil cooler AND the chimera intake, the mount had to be modified. You sent the information to another member in a PM, think you could share that information here? Also, do you have to modify the frame mount regardless of whether you choose the 3 row or 5 row? Thanks guys.

    .

    That is correct.
    You have to trim the wings off, right next to the U Bracket. Since they are no longer used.

    Very simply.

    Pics of bracket and oil cooler with the chimera intake here:5 Row Oil Cooler, need some opinions ??


    In my opinion, its basically removing the advantage of that mount to basically every other mount out there... its ability to hold the body panels in place, just like the airbox does, and the fairing rod you can get with the chimera attempts to prevent. So if youre going to run a chimera with the oil cooler way up there, why not mount it a different way?


    Also, these brackets could easily be modified/retooled (possibly without even changing the flat configuration), by simply putting a very large radiused, partial bend/dip, into the portion that interferes with the chimera's filter.

    .

    The main reason for this Frame bracket is to relocate the cooler up and off the valve tappets.

    This allows easy access to your valve tappet covers to do valve lash check.
    it also clears up room for any other work on the motor.
    It also removes all the stress from that cooler hanging off the head.

    The Chimera fairing braces does a perfect job of holding the fairings together.
