This kit only fits with standard exhaust systems headers and not with yoshi or akroprovic headers.


Additional info added by Barmy: Also see these threads regards HEL cooler:

Replacement Radiator from Coolex (although I've only ever seen it on eBay, not on their website).

eBay Auction: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SUZUKI-GSX-1400-OIL-COOLER-NEW-MODIFIED-FLANGES-/400620995355

Website: http://www.coolexperts.co.uk/

CONCERN:
The Flange across the top of the radiator does not allow the cooling fan to gain air if it cuts in. Whilst some owners may claim that their fan never cut in, the fans do work and I had the fan cut in on my 14 twice on very hot days in heavy traffic jams. So cutting off any possible air supply is, I think a concern. Coolex have been approached and advised of this a number of times, but have chosen not to change the top flange to include holes to allow air flow. Personally I would recommend the replacement from Aaron Radiators (posted by Seth above)

@gsxbarmy

Same concern would be for the HEL as well. http://gsx1400owners.org/forum/index.php?topic=2206.15;topicseen reply #16 last 2 pics
