The cooling fan has to be removed, and the header pipe is sooo easy to pull off, I just did it to help, not sure if it has to though. One tip, run over that tank with a buffer before installation....really shines nice. Don't forget three pieces of insulating tape. One on each side of the side-frame, about one inch back from the radiator vertical. and one dead center on top of the nerfs...that's if you have them.
The adhesive backed foam protects the tank where it might contact the frame. The tank holds about an extra quart of oil. Make sure to idle the engine before checking the oil. Once you have the system up and running, the oil drains back into the engine when it's allowed to sit. If you don't run it a bit, you'll end up over-filling it.
Yes, I have scoops, I make/sell them.
