oil cooler

Oil cooler pipe inlet has just started to leak. Cannot find any threads on it here. Any pearls of wisdom any one? Relieved to find it was just a pipe and not a rear seal. It would seem that in this country as we have the weather to ride 24/52 we do not have rear seal issues as in colder climes where bikes are layed up for months.. Cannot find a new one from my usual outlets in the UK so I guess I will go to the local wrecking yard and get one.

There are four retaining clamps on the inlet pipe. The bottom one, under the radiator has never held the pipe. This has allowed the pipe to rub against the motor wearing a hole in the steel. As no work has ever been done in this area this has to be a manufacturing fault.
