Question: I am going to remove and replace the oil cooler on my 999. I just changed the oil, would imagine I could just remove the lines, oil cooler and install the new one, re-attach the lines. A little oil will come out and I can catch that and refill. Otherwise is it better to drain oil, do the job and refill w/ oil again? Anybody do this recently?

Draining it from the bottom is your best bet will help to get it in your pan better, i pulled my oil cooler after draining the filter and oil pan and still got some squirting out. Un-hook the engine side of the lines first that way you can point it into your drank pan, than you can swing the bottom of the cooler up and get most of the oil out that was minimizing your mess and saving that new oil.

Thanks for the reply......good idea, taking lines off engine first. I hate to lose all that new synthetic mobil though. I just hate putting oil back in once drained.
