Came out a couple weeks ago and found a small oil stain under my oil cooler on my 17 RGS. Had the dealer pick it up and got the dreaded phone call. It appears that the oil cooler mounted on the front downtimes of the M8 bikes is pretty fragile. I went off of a curb near my driveway because the neighbor was blocking the driveway. Nose first off the curb was enough to bump the bottom of the cooler and push it up less than 1/8" causing the hose between the cooler and the line to become occluded. This caused a backup in oil pressure which blew a seal. Waiting on parts that are backordered. FML.

I've gone off the curb 100s of times on bikes and never had a problem. It appears one should not do so with the M8 bikes.

Anyone know of a relocation kit for the oil cooler? Apparently the dealer has seen several of these from road debris strikes as well.
