  • Oil pipes

    I got the transfer case installed and was mocking up the oil pipes to verify fitment and noticed on the top oil pipe where it attaches to the engine there is 1 hole that a bolt can go through but the other side is blocked off. Both holes are threaded on the engine though. I looked on parts fish and it only shows one bolt. Just wondering if everyone else's are the same. My engine is a 2007 the transfer case came from a 2003.
    thanks,
    Rob

    The 03 shows 4 bolts and 07 shows 3 bolts in the fiche, weird.

      I'm just wondering if I should buy the one for the 03 since my engine has two tapped holes

        Was it running fine with these oil lines before or is it a new build?

                Just checked, my 2000 RS has the 2 Allen bolts going into the engine for that line, but my 2002 RS has only one bolt holding it to the engine. I have 2 other engine cases, "01" and "03", and checked them, and all my cases are threaded for 2 bolts, but some of the oil lines have only 1 bolt hole for that line.
                They are all threaded blind holes. I'm sure you will be fine running that line.
                If your wanting a line with 2 holes, I could send you one. Just pay shipping.
                Your project bike is looking good.

                  Thanks for looking Duke, I think I will run it as is and see what happens. I should have the swingarm and all the suspension installed tomorrow. I will post some photos. I painted all the suspension parts to match the shock color. (Progressive shock bronze and black) I have enjoyed building this bike it's easy to work on and I have not had to buy to many special tools

                    I just changed the o-rings on those pipes (my '06 has one of the flanges with 1 bolt, 1 tapped hole) and it still leaks where they connect to the engine. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated

                        why not drill a hole yourself that will line up with the tapped case hole. If you drill it wrong you can still use it with 1 bolt or then order the ones from ebay. drilling the hole is about a 5 minute job if you include the time to clean up after drilling, lol

                          I saved the pipe as soon as we get everything unpacked at the new house i will give it a shot, worst case if I screw it up I will know what not to do
